Elda are usual guests of the European elite, but Itxako never played the Champions League before. The team of a small town in Navarra, near Pamplona, have reached the European level in only eight years. Ambros Martin, former Portland San Antonio player, is the coach of this young club.

Portland coach sacked

Portland San Antonio have officially announced that Javier Cabanas will not continue as coach of the club.

Cabanas took over from Zupo Equisoain at the beginning of the season, but Portland caused disappointment with a fourth place in the Spanish League and Main Round exit in the Champions League.

Party in Ciudad Real

The season is over. With no matches left, the pressure is off the players now. This will be a perfect time for Ciudad to celebrate.

It will be the time to share the joy over the five titles with the entire city of Ciudad Real and the supporters of the Spanish club.

The Ciudad players will arrive to the main square of Ciudad Real at 20:30hrs where a stage will be built.

The players will visit the Mayor’s Office and receive the Asobal League trophy. This and the other four titles will be shown to the fans from the balcony.

The party will continue on the stage where the players will attend a special show with music and fireworks. The Ciudad supporters will receive a special shirt produced for the occasion.
