WE ARE GOING TO EUROPE!!!!
Last year i was fortunate enough to be approached by College Europa FC, who after a successful season had managed to reach the final of Gibraltar’s domestic cup tournament, The Rock Cup.
2014 was to be a very important year for Gibraltarian football. It was to be the first year where local Gibraltarian teams playing at the top of the senior class division, known as the premier league, where doing so under an association, the GFA, which was now a full time member of UEFA.
This meant that the gates to European football had been opened and now local Gibraltarian football teams had the opportunity to compete in Europe’s biggest footballing stage; the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League tournaments.
College Europa FC had managed to reach 2013/2014 Rock Cup Final and as such were only a game away from earning a place at a European footballing tournament for the first time ever in Gibraltar’s history.
Due to the importance of the final, the Directors and technical team of College Europa FC had decided to document the occasion. They wanted it to serve as a memento of the historical event which they had all been privileged enough to be a part of.
This is their story……..their journey…….their Road to Europa……
