    Yeah, I can see from the Benfica video link that the place could hold a lot of people in the old days. But I just cannot see where you could put 6000 people now. A total of 3000 seats, plus terracing next to the old stand for maybe 1500 tops gives a capacity of 4500 as there is very little room behind either goal.
