Football in the Algarve and Penina Hotel and Golf Resort
12 October 2013
Gibraltar Football Association Set to Play at the Algarve Station
In May this year, the Gibraltar Football Association was accepted as a full UEFA member, making them eligible to enter the qualifying tournaments for the UEFA's European Championships. The next Euros will be in 2016, with the qualifying campaign to take place from September 2014. It is predicted that these games will take place at the Algarve Stadium in Faro. This will be an exciting time for team, and many of the loyal fans are expected to attend.
The Algarve Stadium was originally built for the Euro 2004 tournament and can hold up the 30,000 people. It is an impressive structure with a retractable roof - though there is not much rain in the Algarve. Its location puts it around 45 minutes from Penina Golf Resort and Hotel by car, with many pretty Portuguese sights on the way. The 5 Star Resort is home to three golf courses, six restaurants and bars, swimming pools and much more. Those looking for golfing holidays in the Algarve need look no further than this resort, which is also home to the award winning Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course. An exciting sporting calendar for the Algarve means that this golfing resort will undoubtedly be a popular destination.
