Location

The Algarve Veterans Football Tournament is played close to Albufeira and Vilamoura and approximately 30 minutes from Faro airport. The event is held on professional standard pitches in the grounds of the 4* Alfamar Beach and Sport Resort, located directly on the excellent 8 mile sandy mile beach of Praia de Falesia.

Albufeira is the busiest resort on the Algarve and has a very lively nightlife scene centred on the Old Town and 'the strip'.

Vilamoura is the sporting capital of Portugal and is well known for it's international standard golf courses. The resort's busy marina is surrounded by a huge range of restaurants, bars, luxury hotels, designer shops and casino.

The Algarve's seemingly endless coastline includes some of Europe's best beaches and watersports facilities, and is home to some  of the world's finest golf courses. When the sun goes down you'll find the busy resorts of Albufeira and Vilamoura are just a few minutes away.

In Our Opinion

An enjoyable weekend in the Portuguese sunshine before winter sets in. The tournament is played on good quality pitches by the Alfamar hotel and beach, and is followed by the trophy presentation and a very sociable happy hour, or three with the other teams. The Alfamar is beautifully set in a quiet location by the beach, but you're also within easy reach of the nightlife of Albufeira and Vilamoura. Your weekend can be as relaxing or as hectic as you want it to be.

''We are once again attending the tournament in Portugal, as we had such a great time last year. We hope to improve on our lovely wooden spoon"! Dave Wellington, Eight Bells.
