Five-a-side football marathon scheduled in Jimena

Jimena Council's Sports Department, in conjunction with local five-a-side football club El Cielo, announces the recovery of what used to be an annual event: a 24-hour marathon series of five-a-side (futbol sala in Spanish) matches. Scheduled for October 8 and 9 at Jimena's sports pavilion, and with games beginning at 8pm on Friday 8 and ending at 8pm on Saturday 9, the event is sure to attract several teams from the area. Registration costs €120 per team, and prizes range from €600 for the winner to a trophy as a consolation prize. Team registration, which can be had by calling  662 302 134 or 687 398 252, must be done by 7pm on Thursday Ocotber 7. Matches will be scheduled on that date and that time, though ganmes will be played continually over the 24 hours. (More about the game, also called futsal on Wikipedia)
