CD Torrevieja have held their hands up and admitted a cock up over their friendly match with Hull City on Friday July 24th. The Tigers are most certainly coming to town but it’s their baby cubs in the shape of their under-21 side and not the senior team, which is not what the Spanish section of the Torry directors expected when they lined up the fixture. British fans of Torrevieja spotted the blunder when they noticed on various websites that the Hull first team had engagements elsewhere on the scheduled friendly date, and frantic enquiries confirmed that a big mistake had been made!
The club have said sorry to fans who have already bought tickets for the fixture and full refunds will be given if asked for. Those who want to check out the new look Torrevieja squad as well as looking at some Hull players of the future, will be able to do so at a reduced price of five euros, with ticket holders being refunded the difference between the new and old prices. Those who have a new season ticket will only need to pay €2.50. CD Torrevieja apologises to all supporters and football followers who were looking forward to such a high profile game for the city.
