Municipal 3G pitch. Venue for the game against Juventude Sport Campinense/Loulé on Friday afternoon.

On Friday 16th October, our game will take place at the Municipal 3G venue against Juventude Sport Campinense. The pitch is a third generation artificial turf which is FIFA approved and will be similar to the surfaces we played on in Northumbria University, Gateshead Stadium, as well as at the Victor Tedesco Stadium in Malta.

FC Ferreira training pitch. Venue for the Saturday game against FC Ferreiras.

The Saturday game will be against FC Ferreiras in their own 3G training pitch next to the Estadio da Nora. Unfortunately, our original venue, the Estadio da Nora, is being used by the first team, so we have been moved to the more than adequate training venue.

Hotel Alfamar pitch. Venue for the Sunday game against Destination Football FC.

Finally, the Sunday game against our host team, Destination Football run by the tour operator, Gary Thomas, will be on Hotel Alfamar’s grass pitch. The setting looks idyllic and is a far cry from Downhill.
