Soccer field and athletics track in the City of Tomar

There was a time this soccer field and athletics track in Tomar, located at Mouchão Park, was a small stadium, mainly dedicated to soccer. There was a wall around it and seats for the public who attended soccer games, usually  between the local soccer team União de Tomar and other Portuguese teams. There was even a time when the soccer team of Tomar played in the Premier League of Portugal, against teams like Benfica, Porto, Sporting Lisbon, etc. There was also a time where the most famous Portuguese soccer player of all time, Eusébio, played here when this was a stadium, and in the twilight of his career he even played for União de Tomar. Now the local club is in the lower divisions and the stadium was transformed into a soccer field and athletics track, mainly for the benefit of the youth of Tomar.
