The Whaling Museum is excited to partner with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture to present an evening with Portuguese Soccer Legend, Antonio Simoes. The evening will feature a meet-and-greet and keynote address by Simoes.
Simoes is a former player for Sport Lisboa e Benfica, ranked top 5 UEFA team and the biggest soccer club in the world, where he was part of the squads that won ten national championships and was the youngest player ever to conquer the European Cup in 1962. He later moved to the United States where he first played for the Boston Minutemen and finished his career at age 39 with the Kansas City Comets. Simoes played more than 700 games with Eusebio, one of the top world soccer players to ever play the game.
This is a free event. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 508-997-0046 ext., 100.
