UD Lanzarote Play Off

PLAY OFF 2015-2016

U.D. Lanzarote have been drawn against Elche B in the first round of the Play Offs. The Valencian side finished fourth in their league and no side scored more goals than them.


Elche B won 20 games, drew 9 and lost 9. Their football ground is around a 30 minute drive from Alicante airport. There are no direct flights from Lanzarote to Alicante or Valencia so the route will probably be via Madrid or Las Palmas.

The first leg of the match will be played away in Elche on either the Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd of May (time and date to be confirmed). The return home leg will be played a week later at time and date to be confirmed.

C.D. Atlético Granadilla 0, U.D. Lanzarote 4

The Rojillos ended the league season with an emphatic win led by their captain Rosmen who bagged a hat-trick. This guarantees a second placed finish so Lanzarote will now have the advantage of playing a side that finished in fourth spot with the second leg to be played at home.  read more »

Interesting Travel Statistics For The Canaries

We went to a presentation at The Arrecife Gran Hotel yesterday, given by a German company that compiles statistics for travel agencies. Their data is based on information collected from travel bookings made by travel agents - in the case of the UK around 250,000 sets of data per week.

The session was entitled Fortunata and was attended by representatives from The Cabildo, Promotur, hotel owners and travel agencies.


We’ve pulled out some of the interesting numbers which came out of it, and note these relate to the whole of The Canaries, not just Lanzarote. Also, because they are based on tour operators and travel agency information, these numbers don’t include bookings made direct with owners of apartments and villas for private rental.  read more »

UD Lanzarote 3 UD Ibarra 0

The Rojillos finished their final home league match of the season with an impressive win and in doing so have made it two complete seasons without defeat on home soil.

More importantly this win lifts Lanzarote into second spot and as long as they win next Sunday away in Tenerife versus bottom club Atlético Granadilla then they shall remain second. This will give the Rojillos a lower placed side in the playoffs and also the second leg will be played at home.

The Rojillos looked intent on scoring from the very beginning wanting to end their run of two games both ending scoreless.

UD Ibarra had begun the season well and for several weeks were league leaders before slipping away early in the New Year and are now mid table. In the early part of the match the Tenerife side kept a well organised defence and were a constant threat on the break.

In the 16th minute a one two with Rosmen and Toñito allowed the latter a strike at goal but the keeper did well saving with his feet.  read more »
