New soccer surface for first time in 15 years 

Young soccer fans have a special reason to welcome work currently taking place at the municipal field of “Maximino Bacallado” in El Rosario.

For the first time in 15 years, the surface is being renewed with artificial grass of the latest generation and approved by FIFA.

Sports councillor, Iván Armas and the president of the CDZ Esperanza, Juan Manuel Yanes visited the site to see how work is progressing. The project has been funded equally by Tenerife Cabildo and El Rosario council with an investment of nearly 150,000 euros. It is expected to be completed during the month of April.

Sr. Armas emphasised the importance of this action to avoid possible injuries during the matches, both of the first team members and their opponents, as well as the boys and girls from the lower classes of the club.

During the work, the first team will play its matches at El Tablero.

The council says it appre-ciates the involvement of the Cabildo as by itself, it could not have met the cost.
