Benidorm CD now with British Input

Benidorm football club has struggled for many years but back in May 2019 they approached a British Expat who owns several business in and around Benidorm for sponsorship, he did not sponsor the club but saw a wonderful opportunity and offered to buy it instead.  Four months later he is now the proud new owner of Benidorm CD with the hope of turning the club around, not only making it a profitable business but something for everyone to enjoy.

"Whether you´re into football or not, we plan on making match days fun for the whole family"

The first change to the club was the appointment of a new Manager Javier Surbirats (details below), and with Javier at the helm and the help of local supporters they hope to put Benidorm CD back on the map.  The club is not far off the league.  "So if you love Benidorm, please help make this work and come and watch our fabulous team"

Like any business Benidorm CD needs to become profitable in order to grow and the first step is to increase not only season ticket sales but match day tickets as well.

Prices have been kept low to encourage sales with the price of a season ticket at only 40€, this allows you to enjoy all the home matches during the season, there is also a well stocked bar at the Foietes Football Stadium.

Match tickets are priced at only 7€ and there are plans to introduce some great deals with these such as free beer or bocadillo, in fact the first match on 31st August was completely free, with donations going to Aspanion Local Board, the association of children with cancer, with Maria and Aitana, two members of Aspanion, who were responsible for making the honor roll of the game, which began with a minute of silence in memory of children killed by cancer, including the daughter of the former national coach Luis Enrique

Both season tickets and tickets for single matches can be purchased at the Foietes Sports Center, Guillermo Amor stadium which is situated close to the railway station  this is easily reached by the number 1 bus, or is  just a  short taxi ride away from anywhere in Benidorm which will cost around 10€ each way, so a great evening can be enjoyed by all the family at a very reasonable cost.

There are also plans for using the facilities as a training ground for youngsters from all over the world to be given the opportunity to train under the Mediterranean sun with professional footballers, this is popular in the  US and the plan is to develop this here in Benidorm. "So kids from the UK can come and train here, too, but one step at a time - Right now I need the help of the British public to help take us there, we need their support"

New Start, New Manager

Before the season kicks off there has been a clear statement of intent from Benidorm CD with the exciting appointment of a new manager Javier Surbirats and he leaves no doubt about the direction of Benidorm CD.

Javier has come on-board on an initial 1 year contract and brings vast experience in Spanish football to propel Benidorm Football forward in the coming season.

Javier´s career began on the pitch, progressed to the dugout and ultimately to the boardroom, initially a youth player at his boyhood club Valencia, he impressed the trainers and was given the opportunity to play for the 1st team where he made just under 300 appearances over 3 decades, his loyalty was rewarded with a spell managing the team, before he was made director of football.  It was in this position that he spotted the talent of unknown Rafael Benitez and campaigned a reluctant board for his recruitment.

His instincts proved correct and it was during this period that Valencia achieved their greatest period of success with Javier´s appointment of Benitez leading to their 1st league title in 31 years, followed by another title 2 years later and a UFEA cup final win over  Marseille in 2004.

Javier´s experience can not be questioned and it is with great pride that he is welcomed to Benidorm CD football club.

I didn't know there was a footy team in Benidorm. A missed opportunity for a stag party that.
I'm sure with a bit of advertising, that ground would be quite full of British footy fans.
