Valencia Fallas Trophy closes down in a typical Valencian way!
The Valencia Fallas Trophy closed down with an amazing prize-giving ceremony and a ‘Paellada’ party for the teams.
After Sunday’s matches, all of the teams came together for the prize-giving ceremony. Marcos Martínez won ‘best referee’, Iván Oliva from C.H. San Fernando won ‘best goalkeeper’ and Matthias Witthaus from Hamburger Polo Club won ‘best player’. F.C. Barcelona was awarded the American School of Valencia’s Sport Values Trophy. Congratulations to all of you!
Third place was given to C.H. Pozuelo by Jesús Gracia, FHCV’s president; second place to F.C. Barcelona by Juan José Vidal, C.H.Xaloc’s president; and first place, plus the 1.000€ cheque was given by Lars Boecking, managing director of the Valencia Fallas Trophy.
During the prize-giving ceremony a music band – accompanied by two ‘Falleras’ – played Spanish songs, just as they do during traditional ‘Fallas’ parties. Once the awards were given and the players were ready, our ‘Paellada’ started and everyone had a chance to enjoy the music, the party and taste a typical Valencian dish: ‘Paella’.
