During 1994, Financial trouble dating back to the 1980s when Benfica completed the third tier ("Terceiro Anel") of the old Estádio da Luz and a long time dream of making Benfica again European Champion started to deteriorate the club finances. The rampant spending and a questionable signing policy which allowed for squads composed of well over 30 players, further aggravating the financial problems.

Consequently, the period from 1994 through 2003 was arguably the darkest in the history of Benfica. During this time, Benfica only won one Portuguese Cup in season 1995–96 and finished in positions until then unknown, such as sixth in 2000–01 and fourth in 2001–02. Benfica entered in default during the João Vale e Azevedo term of club presidency which further damaged the club credibility, and nearly every year saw the hire of two or more coaches, between 1994 and 2002, eleven coaches shared the seat, Mário Wilson, three times no less.

It was during this period that Benfica paid 13M€ for Simão Sabrosa, smashing the Portuguese transfer record, and also decided to build the new Estádio da Luz on 28 September 2001, which eventually cost 162M€.
