This is part of an overall plan to develop football activities in the borough
The mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga and the president of C. D Tenerife, Miguel Concepción Cáceres, signed a covenant on Tuesday June 24th to develop a series of sporting initiatives in the world of football in Adeje,
The agreement will complement other joint projects and together form the basis for a number of activities within the sport starting in the 2014-2015 season.
Commenting on the agreement the mayor said, “this is an important agreement which serves to regularise the relationship between CD Tenerife and the council. It’s not new – we have had a joint history with the club, which has brought positive results. This agreement will now work to help football clubs at basic levels and of course those who play.”
He continued, “here in the council we will continue to work for the sport, which we recognise as the backbone of co-existence too, and of personal development and the community.”
CD Tenerife president Miguel Concepción Cáceres said that through this agreement they could “bring the club closer to the other parts of Tenerife (outside the capital) which is vitally important and with this kind of agreement we can work with those starting out in the sport”. He added that he was sure in a very few years the club would be welcoming “with open arms” many young players who had come through what he described as Adeje’s excellent football school.
The primary objective of the new agreement will be to coordinate the work of the local administration and the club through training programmes and the promotion of football activities within the different categories that are taught by the Adeje Municipal School of Football.
At the same time the agreement will serve to assist in the promotion of players in Adeje, as well publicising the activities of the CD Tenerife side in the town through different activities, and sporting events, workshops, training days, sports campus, etc. The agreement also allows the use of the corporate image of both parties as well as sporting installations and municipal zones needed for the development of training and assessment activities in the sport.
To facilitate the evolution of different activities both parties may also seek funding, grants and assistance from third parties, private and/or public.
To guarantee the legality and transparency of this agreement, a joint commission has been established to oversee the projects and programmes that will be part of the agreement and make sure the right structures are in place to meet the requirements of the agreement.
