Visit Valencia and watch Valencia CF VS Real Madrid this January – Offer

With Valencia flying high in La Liga, this fixture takes on another dimension this January. Valencia VS Real Madrid has always held some tension and magic but with the positions of both teams at present, for several years, this fixture has not had the importance in respect of league positioning than it has this season.

Following Real Madrid’s loss on 2016/17 season here at the Mestalla, they will be desperate to revenge this defeat as well as set themselves up for the remainder of the season in their chase for the title. Valencia on the other hand will hope they are still hot on the tails of Barcelona at the end of January and want to push Real Madrid further away from challenging.

All is set up of an amazing match on the weekend of 27 January and you can be here in Valencia to watch the occasion unfold.

A Fantastic First Valencia Smash! T20 International Cricket Tournament

Valencia Sports Tours with the support of Levante CC and Cricket España welcomed 4 cricket clubs from the UK to the city of Valencia for the inaugural Valencia Smash! International T20 Tournament.

Played over 4 days of sunshine from 19 – 22 October,  a total of 10 matches took place at the VCG (or as the locals call it, Campo de Beisbol) with sides Cowley Drifters, Freshfields, Herts Vets and West Hagley all making the trip to Valencia.

Day 1 saw West Hagley edge out Freshfields and hosts Levante CC beat Cowley Drifters with the latter of the two matches played under lights, a novelty to the visiting side and maybe just gave hosts Levante a slight advantage.
Day 2 began at 10am with matches all day until 10pm! West Hagley continued their winning streak with a win against Herts Vets under the evening lights, plus a second win for Levante against Freshfields saw both clubs moving ahead of the rest at the end of day 2. Cowley also overcome Freshfields but it was their match against Herts Vets that was the game of the day. Cowley set a record T20 score at the VCG 274, only to be chased down by some rediculous batting by the Vets, setting the new ground record of 279.

Night cricket on day one

Day 3 began with Freshfields posting their first win of the tournament after overcoming Herts Vets who also succumb to a vibrant local team which meant Levante sat top of the table. So it was down to West Hagley and Cowley. Should West Hagley beat the Drifters, they would guaratee their place in the final by finishing in the top two with Levante, however, should Cowley overcome their rivals, they would send West Hagley into the final day needing a result against Levante. It wasn’t to be for Cowley as West Hagley were too strong, however, a great game was blessed with some quality cricket.

Plenty of Food and Beers consumed over the 4 days!

Day 4. With both West Hagley and Levante guaranteed the top two spots, their scheduled morning final group game match was cancelled and all eyes were focussed on the final which began at 1pm in the glorious autumn blue skies and sunshine. With Levante winning the toss and selecting to bat, we knew we were in for a competitive match as the two sides looked very equal over the days passed. And the final proved just that! Some excellent bowling from the West Hagley team kept the Levante score down to 168 for 9 from their 20 overs with the only shining light a quality 66 from opening batsman Azah Abbas. As scores over the previous days had suggested, this was going to be a tough task the home side to defend but defend they did. With some stunning batting from opener Hasam who made his 50 before being dismissed by Tariq, caught behind by Morgan. the quality batting of West Hagley edged ever closer to the total but were losing wickets along the way and as a result, their run rate slowing. Unfortunately for West Hagley, they couldn’t maintain the scoring pace and fell just short by 10 runs, making 158 for 9 off their 20 overs, with captain Rowan Pinkerton of Levante taking 3 crucial wickets.

So Levante CC picked up the winners trophy following a passionate and exciting final, with the match a fitting end to a wonderful 4 days of cricket, fun, laughs, plenty of food and certainly beers! In addition awards were shared out as follows –

Best Bowler – Ghulam Ali – West Hagley
Best Batsman – Alex Gotley – Cowley Drifters
Champagne Moment – Adeel Sajid – West Hagley (Bowled hatrick and 4 wickets in 5 balls in the same over)
The SMASH! Award – Harjit Singh (Broke nose on Saturday and came back to play the final Sunday)

Special thanks go to all the players, teams, umpires, scorers, the ground and bar who were open and available for every hour of every day and anyone else who made this an brilliant few days. Until 2018…….

With Valencia being a city full of beauty and culture, while also being relatively small compared to Europes capitals and metropolises, the 26 mile route passes almost all the sites you could wish to see. Also with the local community fully embracing the marathon, the support is phenomenal.

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and temperatures reached 20°C on the flat city course. These conditions were of benefit to the elite runners as Kenyan Sammy Kirop Kitwara won the mens race with a course record of 2:05:15 and Ethiopian Aberu Zennebe won the womens in 2:26:17.

The Valencia Smash! this Thursday 19 October 2017

The time has arrived, Valencia will play host to its first ever cricket tournament, the Valencia Smash! T20 from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 October 2017.

Just under a year in the making, Valencia Sports Tours and Levante CC have come together to host what we hope will become an annual event on the cricket calendar. Four teams from the UK, Cowley Drifters, Herts Vets, West Hagley and Freshfields, along with their local hosts, with play 11 matches over four days, including two matches under lights.

Supported by Cricket España, this end of the season tournament has been created for several reasons. The first, a great way to finish the season, plenty of great cricket ahead with equal amounts of social interaction guaranteed. The second is to continue the development of Levante CC as an ever growing club, one that is improving on both a cricketing level and internal infrastructure every year and finally to showcase the sport in Valencia like it has never been seen before. This is important for the longevity of the sport in the city, highlight the popularity in the number of players playing, both in Valencia and those prepared to travel to the city from across Europe and beyond, as well as hopefully bring through new young players and locals to the game.

Starting at 4pm on Thursday through to the final on Sunday afternoon, all five teams will play each other once, with the top two sides following these matches playing a final at 1pm Sunday.

If you are in Valencia, make sure you pass by and show your support. The bar will be open throughout the tournament and the weather looks great! Check out the match schedule below!
