As well as the normal preparations for a trip to the sunshine, Oxford fans have been busy planning events in the Algarve next week.
The 5-a-side tournament is fully booked, but there’s still space at the football quiz afterwards. Ideally drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’re coming (helps the venue to plan for us), but if you decide to come along at the last minute, I’m sure we can find space for you. It’s at the Bella Vista Sports Bar in Albufeira on Thursday 13th July, football kicks-off at 2pm, with the football quiz starting afterwards, at around 4:30pm.
Following the Steve Dyer Fans’ Match in Benalmadena last year, the football (organised by Kath Faulkner and Simon Hathaway) and football quiz (organised by Mitch East) will once again be raising money for Helen & Douglas House Hospice. We’ll also be raising money for a charity in Portugal helping victims of the wildfires in the Pedrógão Grande region that have claimed the lives of more than 60 people.
There’s also the Mini-Golf Tournament at the Family Golf Park in Vilamoura to look forward to. On Tuesday 11th July, from 3pm Oxford fans will be battling it out to be crowned Oxford United Mini-Golf Tournament champion, and there’s no greater honour than that.

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