Double double in the Algarve - 9 Nana Budds (Open Age) & Mini FC (Veterans) both claim 2nd title.

The 16th June saw our annual Summer extravaganza of football with the open age and veterans' tournaments sharing the same stage. With 16 open age and 14 veterans teams signed up (a sell out for both) we had a great day of football in a stunning beach setting.

The open age kicked us off and we witnessed a remarkable victory from 9 Nana Budds. Our 2009 Valencia Fives champions claimed tournament victory against Cruz Del Sur (in the Cup Final) and Cruz Del Surely (in the Cup Semi-Final). It was a sensational victory as 9 Nana Budds only just qualified for the Cup in the final round of group games. Cruz Del Sur must have been rueing their luck as the two teams only conceded 3 goals between them in a total of 19 combined games.

In the Veterans tournament, Mini FC who won here on the Veterans last visit to the Algarve (2015) were victorious again. They saw off a strong line-up that included FC Mahou (2013 Algarve Open winners and current Veterans defendin champions) and Hungary's FC Miracle who had now finished runners-up for two tournaments in a row.

Thank you to everyone who participated at the event and ensured it was a massive success!
