Chelsea, Barcelona, And Dortmund Youth In Los Cristianos Football Treat Three days of free Christmas football will bring the best of Europe’s under 12 players to Los Cristianos on 27, 28 and 29 December. Spain heroes Fernando Torres and Iniesta have played in earlier editions of the Arona 7’s and the seven a side games are full of skill and energy.
The Estadio Olimpico is just down the hill from Hotel Paradise Park and the group and knock out stages will be held though the daytime with the grand final on the Sunday evening. This years 12 teams are Chelsea, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Español, Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Valencia, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, and Paris St Germain.
Atletico Madrid will be the favourites after winning the last two tournaments but with some of their star players moving up an age level, the trophy is there for the taking. The games are covered on several Spanish TV channels and at last years final a 5,000 crowd enjoyed a thriller between Atletico and Valencia.
