Portugal 5-a-Side and Quiz


We are now fully booked for the 5-a-side football, but come along and watch, then join us for a beer and do the quiz afterwards.

Following on from the successful Steve Dyer fans’ match in Benalmadena last year which raised over £1,000 for Helen and Douglas House, Oxford United fan Kath Faulkner is looking for Oxford fans to bring their astroturf boots again, this time to Oxford’s pre-season tour of Portugal.

On Thursday 13th July there will be a 5-a-side tournament at the Bellavista Sports Bar in Albufeira from 2pm until 4pm. If you’re going to the Algarve and want to put a team together yourself that’s great. If you fancy a game but don’t have enough people for a team, no problem, just come along and we’ll put together teams with other Oxford fans. There are changing/showering facilities at the venue. Once again we’ll be raising money for charity and are asking for a €5 donation from each player.

Then after the football, head to the bar, grab a a cold beer, and test your football knowledge with Oxford fan and quiz maestro Mitch East who will be hosting a charity football quiz from around 4:30pm. Either put together your own team of up to 6 people, or join up with other fans on the day. Like the football, we’ll be asking for a €5 donation from each person.

If you are interested in playing or quizzing (or both) please let us know by sending an email to portugal@yellowarmy.co.uk. That will help us know roughly how many people we’ve got and work out a schedule of games.

There will be more information on events in the coming days and weeks here on the Yellow Army website.

Felicidades, and we look forward to seeing you in the Portuguese sunshine!
