UD Lanzarote 1 Elche B 1

Los Rojillos (The Reds) hopes of playing Segunda B (League 1) football ended early Sunday evening after failing to pull back a 2-0 deficit from the away leg.

UD Lanzarote Home Crowd

The biggest crowd by some distance this season of between 3500-4000 souls turned up believing Lanzarote could win especially with their magnificent home record of not accepting defeat in 40 league matches and counting.

The atmosphere inside the ground was buzzing with Batucadas (Carnival bands) with their full array on instruments creating a special occasion.

Just before kick off the UD Lanzarote President Machín with the Rojillos most famous fan Antonio presented goalkeeper Agoney with his Player of the Season Cup and trophy voted for by the fans. A trophy well deserved by this most humblest of men.

When club secretary Domingo Gil told the players who had won the award a few days previous, Agoney didn’t even know that there had been a vote as he doesn’t use Facebook. His surprise was a picture of shock and gratefulness. This top bloke raised his trophy to the fans which only ignited the atmosphere if that was possible. Lanzarote´s top five voted players this season are as follows:  read more »

The start from Lanzarote will take place from Marina Lanzarote on 6th September when vessels in ORC and Open classes will set out on the 300 nautical mile journey. At that time of year, mild north east trades should ensure a great few days of blue water sailing.

On arrival in Madeira, the party starts with a “Feira do Mar,” which is a programme of live events and tastings of regional cuisine, and it finishes with a “Festa Branca” or white night party.  read more »

Quarter Final Play Off: Elche B 2, UD Lanzarote 0

Two second half goals for the hosts will automatically make them favourites to qualify for the next round, however do not forget Lanzarote have not lost at home for over two years.


At the 5pm kick off temperatures at the wonderful Martínez Valero stadium were in excess of 30 degrees and playing on the biggest pitch in Spain against players all under 23 years of age was always going to be a difficult task for manager Adolfo Pérez´s men.

The first half Lanzarote coped well and whilst Elche´s second team dominated possession very few chances were created.

In the second half as expected Lanzarote began to  read more »

Behind The Scenes At Ironman Lanzarote

Tomorrow around 1800 athletes will set off at 7AM to compete in the world’s toughest triathlon event. Some will complete the course in less than 9 hours, others will push the 17 hour time limit to the maximum, and many will stop along the way. For them, it will be one of the biggest days of their life, but without an army of over 4,000 volunteers and staff, it couldn’t happen.

We thought we’d go behind the scenes of this iconic event, which is so valuable to the island’s economy, to show you some of the work that goes on.
