Football Silves FC v Imortal Albufeira Saturday 14th March 2015

In Albufeira, soccer, Sports - football on March 17, 2015 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

My day out in Silves for some sporting action!

A game of three penalties, two for Silves and the winning one for Imortal shortly before the end. Some pictures from the game http://1drv.ms/1GUm1aq

The synthetic grass pitch installed after the 2012 tornado damage was nice and welcoming. Parts of the stadium have, though, never been repaired. It has no roof and the ‘executive’ seats are in ruins. But they have installed a bar in the ground!

A reasonable crowd of about 100 enjoyed a pleasant afternoon in the sunshine.

This is the Algarve League, semi-professional and the fourth and lowest level of football in this region.

There are no ‘amateur’ leagues, no one here plays for fun and few beers afterwards. There is very little adult sport participation overall.
