Did you know Lanzarote has a football team?

UD LanzaroteWhy not take in some sport while on your Lanzarote villa holiday.

Not a lot of people are aware of this however Lanzarote has a football team. Having watched them for myself a few times I can say they are very entertaining.

As of 2013 playing in the Spanish Tercera Division Group 12, Based in the Ciudad Deportiva de Lanzarote (literally Sports City of Lanzarote) is the main sports ground in Arrecife.
For any match if going in a small group I would advise a taxi as the ground is located on the inner ring road and can be difficult to find if you are unfamiliar with the route. Taking a wrong turn and heading down the Arricife one way system with no exits can be fun. Parking can also be a bit of an issue.

As you drive from the airport heading for Costa Teguise, as you exit the main dual carriageway just past the petrol station, the stadium can be seen on the right hand side just past the new bridge before the hospital turn off. Some pubs in and around Costa run outings to the games, this can be a good option as transport is often arranged to and from the ground. If you are looking for some bloke stuff, or the ladies fancy a football fix, this is for you.

Tickets are priced adults €5, pensioners €3 and kids under 15 years free. For details on fixtures you can visit their web site.
