The Tenerife Forum is pleased to announce sponsorship of the UD GUARGACHO BENJAMÍN A & B FOOTBALL TEAMS.

The teams will soon be sporting the Forum Logo on various parts of their kit which has been donated by the Forum.

GuargachoBadge UD Guargacho is a registered football club based in the village of Guargacho between Las Chafiras and Las Galletas making it very central for players living in Las Chafiras, Llano del Camello, Guargacho, Los Abrigos, Golf del Sur and Amarilla Golf.  Some players come from Costa del Silencio, Las Rosas and Las Galletas.

The club was founded in the early nineties and apart from the adult team there are various different categories of children’s and youth teams.

The “Benjamines”

These teams, now sponsored by The Tenerife Forum, are made up of children aged between 8 and 10 of various nationalities.  They train twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays 5.30pm to 7.00pm and also play an official match once a week either on a Friday evening, a Saturday morning or a Sunday morning.

They play seven a side football in the FTF league (Tenerife Football Federation) and although the groups are limited by geographical zones from Arico to Puerto Santiago and as high as Vilaflor throughout the league, if the teams go through to the island and regional finals they will be required to play further a field.
