2 in Group C saw Mariano FC of Spain take on
England's FC Dad. Both teams were experienced
in our tournaments – Mariano FC here in Mallorca,
FC Dad across the spectrum of our destinations.
FC (as Peluqueria Mariano) were debutants in
2015 and made a great start. They won Group
C with a 100% record scoring 12 goals and conceding
just 1 in the process. A 5-0 win over Dynamo
Gunt followed in the Cup Quarter-Finals and
they were looking like one of the tournament
favourites. A 1-1 draw with ZVC Indoor Gent
(Bel) in the Semi-Finals saw them exit 3-2 on
penalties. We asked last year if they could
go on to win it in 2016 – they could.
had another 100% group record with 5 wins to
take the Group A title. They scored a massive
24 goals (4 against). The Quarter-Finals saw
them sweep Relentless FC aside (6-1) before
a 2-2 draw with Brioche FS in the Semi-Finals.
This time they were victorious in a Semi-Final
shootout and earned a place in the Cup Final
against Los Pibes. They won it 3-1 and will
arguably be the favourites for the 2017 Mallorca
found FC Dad a tough proposition and it looked
for all the world that a solid defensive display
from the English team might earn them a point.
However, in the dying embers of the game, Jose
L Salinas Acosta found the breakthrough and
the hosts took the game 1-0.
