Slam dunk in Adeje!

Top basketball teams face off this Saturday in a pre-season derby
The Trofeo Costa Adeje, this Saturday (8pm) will see the two top Canarian teams, Iberostar Tenerife and Herbalife Gran Canaria, face each other in the first derby of the season.

Launching details of the match, to be held in the Las Torres pavilion, were Adeje sports councillor Adolfo Alonso Ferrrera, Roberto Konrad from Tenerife Top Training, and Iberostar Tenerife president Felix Hernández.

Both teams have enjoyed a headline grabbing season in 2016/2017, with the Tenerife side classifying for the Kings Cup and the title play-offs with the icing on the cake being victory in the Basket Champions League Final Four. The Gran Canarian side were crowned European Supercup champions. And while Saturday’s game may be a friendly, there is a healthy rivalry between the two sides. “The game has become a fixed part of the national pre-season calendar”, said Adolfo Alonso and Iberostar’s Felix Hernández. The councillor added that these kind of sporting events were very important for Adeje, and thanked both sides for bringing the derby to the borough for the second year in a row.

Tickets for the game are at “affordable prices, as we want to ensure that fans can come and see the game”, added Adolfo Alonso, with the sports department also announcing an increase in seating for the match. Hernández said this was a very important tournament for the players and the public, given that this year they would be seeing the Champions League title holders play the European Super Cup winners, here in Adeje. “Despite the fact that this is a pre-season game we have spent weeks in preparation to guarantee the public that they will see a top class sporting event”.

Hernández detailed too how many of this year’s new season tickets holders were from the south of the island –more than in previous years, “proof that the team is consolidating its base here in the south”.

Roberto Konrad said Tenerife Top Training was delighted to be the sponsors of the match. “Our doors are always open to Iberostar Tenerife. Being able to sponsor events of this kind is part of our commitment to sports in general.”
The match will also be broadcast on Television Canarias on Sunday September 3rd at 11.25am.

This morning the Adeje mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga and the president of the Canarian Basketball club, Félix Hernandez fronted a press conference in the T3 Tenerife Top Training sports complex to announce details of tomorrow night’s pre-season basketball match between Iberostar Tenerife and Herbalife Gran Canaria.

The two clubs play in the League Endesa and will both be playing at European level this season. The mayor told press, “It is an honour and a luxury to have the top clubs in Canarian basketball playing in our borough. In the past fans of top class basketball had to travel to La Laguna to see a game, but now, at least once a year, we have the chance to see them play in the South”. The mayor added that the Council continued to be committed to the development to all forms of sports in the borough, “it’s fundamental for the education of our children, young people and adults…we support all activities that encourage a healthy lifestyle”.

Hernandez said he wanted to “congratulate and thank most sincerely the Adeje Council for giving us the chance to hold this match here and for the lines of assistance that have been opened to our club and the sport in recent years”. He also praised the Tenerife Top Training installation as one of the best “not just in the Canaries and in Spain, but in Europe”, adding it has placed Adeje among the best destinations in the sporting world.

Also speaking at the conference were Adeje sports councillor Adolfo Alonso and T3 owner and sponsor of tomorrow’s match, Roberto Konrad.

There are still a few tickets left for the game which takes place in the Las Torres pavilion tomorrow (Saturday) evening, at €5 and €10.
