Mention Valencia, Barcelona, Atlético Madrid and ofcourse the Real Madrid you’ll know we talking about LaLiga right?
The free LaLiga fan day on the Seapoint Promenade invited fans to rub shoulders with Spanish Legends and some local stars too.
A surprisingly informative Q&A session in which in-depth questions were asked from the panel consisting of Gaizka Mendieta, Patrick Kluivert and local Bafana superstar Stanton “Stiga” Fredericks, the answers from the legends were both inspiring and motivating for many of the young athletes in attendance.
The Cape Town sun made for a great day out with the family in which the kids could make new friends playing five-a-side football in the score arena..
Or have their picture taken with the Spanish league trophy and replica jerseys like our local celebs..
If you think football is just for boys, think again there were some girls who will put you to shame with their knowledge and skill of the beautiful game.
If this was not enough the fans were also entertained by some freestyle footballers before the kick-off to the Madrid Derby, the skills displayed were insane.
Once kick-off arrived we enjoyed the game on two big screens, not quite the goal fest I expected but entertaining non the less, a rather Messi affair as Barcelona were only expecting a draw. In the end Atlético Madrid win Real Madrid 1-0 keeping their hopes alive which I doubt will happen.
An awesome day and initiative which made one lucky fan happy as he gets to watch a Spanish Football match of his choice next season, judging by his shirt the Camp Nou should expect a crazy Capetonian fan next year.
