Hi,

FC RM Hamm Benfica is a club playing at the highest level in Luxembourg. I do know there's a large population of Portuguese people living in Luxembourg, but I'd like to know what's the official connection between Benfica and this small club from Luxembourg.

Is it just the name or is there some co-operation in some kind as well?

The club is founded only in 2004 when two other clubs merged, then at May 10th 2006 they added 'Benfica' to their name.
Since the 2007/2008 season they play at the highest level.

Anyone got some info regarding this?

I heard of this club about a year ago through the internet, i don't think there's anything more than the little club getting most of our logo and name. I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to loan some young players there.

Sorry for my late response...

Someone told me it's an official satellite-club of the big Benfica, I'd like to know some more information about this club but it's very hard to find :).

As for the ones interested...

I visited this club last friday. The people over there say they're an official sattelite-club of Benfica, they co-operate in several ways with Benfica and according to them they get players on loan too...

btw, They really love Benfica over there!
