This year, for the 11th consecutive time, Martin Tierney and Soccer Experience are bringing some top class footballers to Tenerife, to play in the Veterans International Tournament 2017, in the Las Torres Pavilion.
The weekend, November 11th and 12th, with the support of the Adeje council’s department of sport, brings together local amateur players, who generally play weekly in the Soccer Experience league here, and ex-pros from the Scottish, English, Irish and Spanish leagues. This year, for instance, Irish internationals Andy Reid and John Thomson are travelling over, as is Nayim, ex-Barça player, and John Fawcett of Royale International is bringing a full Nottingham Forrest squad to Adeje for the weekend.
While it’s a fun weekend of football, the teams take the matches seriously. This is also very much an open event for the public. It’s free in, with a chance to see some of your favourite ex-league stars, playing in 15 minute matches over the two days. The matches start from 12.15 on Saturday and Sunday, playing in a mini league format with finals on Sunday afternoon.
