VALENCIA FALLAS TROPHY
The VALENCIA FALLAS TROPHY is a hockey tournament which has grown from a much needed initative to create a new international project in the city of Valencia which aspires to be more than just a sporting competition.
The famous Mediterranean city is, of course, blessed with a warm climate, fantastic sports facilities but the event is set up to conincide with a popular traditional festival. And so we have a tournament which not only embraces a high sporting level but also delivers a great opportunity to enjoy the surroundings and atmosphere of one of the major festivals in Spain: the Fallas of Valencia.
The city of Valencia will host this tournament at the sports complex Verge del Carme-Beteró between Friday 11th and Sunday 13th March 2016, bringing together 120 players from at least three different European countries.
Valencia is a city with great tradition in sports. The city was European Capital of Sport in 2011 and is well known for field hockey. The city of Valencia has hosted many international competitions since the Valencian Hockey Federation was installed in the Verge del Carme-Beteró sports complex, including Valencia Hockey World League Semi-Final Spain 2015, a qualifying tournament for the Olympic Games Rio 2016.
And in itself the Fallas festival has become a major tourist attraction, as it is now a major draw on the calendar of international festivals for tourists from all around the world. More than 385 monuments are built throughout the city of Valencia and over 5,000 kilograms of firework are used for the 20 daytime shows which take place at the Town Hall and are known as “Mascletà”.
In total, you have to agree that Valencia has become a unique and incomparable place to celebrate the first edition of VALENCIA FALLAS TROPHY.
