SANTORINI FOOTBALL CLUB
Soccer is a much loved sport in Vilanculos and one can see the local kids and adults playing daily on the beach and soccer field in Vilanculos Town. We support our own Santorini Soccer Team and supply them with a team outfit and equipment. On away games, we also provide transport funds and refreshments. Most of the Lodges or islands have their own team and compete for fun in soccer games. Its a great treat to watch.
Our soccer team ( The Santorini Football Club ) has had a good start this year. Since the 1st of January, we have played 11 games in which 3 games we played at our home ground and 8 games away. Some of the away games were played on the Islands with teams from Azura Island Retreat, Marlin Lodge and the Benguerra Island Soccer team. The team also travelled out of town to play with other teams from those areas.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
There is no specific season as such for Soccer in Mozambique. The teams play all year round until each team has played against each other twice – one home game and one away game. Each team has their own home field close to where they are based, either a Lodge or a District. There are 4 matched that are played each week against various teams.
Although the teams play mostly for fun, there are sometimes sponsorships that go towards the final winning team. The teams are currently looking for a sponsor for this year and the sponsor will be named once they come forward with the offer for the winning team.
Please see our upcoming match schedule below that we try to keep updated based on information we are given from the teams. Please bear in mind that this is Mozambique and we dont often get all the information timeously.
