UD Lanzarote will begin their season tomorrow (Sunday) 5th September at 12 noon versus CD Unión Puerto at home in Arrecife.
To those of you who have already bought your season ticket or game tickets for tomorrows match then you need to be at the stadium only 15-30 minutes before kickoff. Bring water, (no other drinks or food) and your ID with you. Season tickets will not be on sale tomorrow.
Some match tickets will be available on the day and those of you wishing to attend please be there by 11am. The club is under instructions from the authorities and in each section of 236 seats the club has only been able to sell 37 seats due to distancing and regulations.
This does mean that most of the season tickets already purchased are in the shade which in turn means that there will be little or no shade to sit in for those paying on the day. When I first began watching the Rojillos 20 years ago there was no cover over the seating and on some days it was incredibly hot. I do ask people that wish to pay on the door to please bring a hat, cover yourself in sunscreen and have plenty of water because in September everyday is normally cloudless and hot.
Our opposition are from Fuerteventura and they will bring with them a very good side and many of you will recognize a lot of ex Rojillo players including Fran Gil, Josito, Juanma and Giovanni. Their manager is also our ex Lanzarote boss Maxi Barerra. Whilst we wish our past players and management the very best the only thing that we hope that they travel home with other than a safe journey is a suntan and no points.
Please support the lady who sells the raffle tickets for 1 Euro each. Pilar has five prizes including a signed home shirt.
Unfortunately at this moment matches will not be shown live on YouTube. We understand that many of our supporters who live away from Lanzarote will be upset by this but the club is trying to find a solution. When fans were admitted back into the stadium last season many residents chose to watch on TV rather than to attend the match and that is no good to the club at all.
I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.
