09.11.2014 - Local indoor football club Uruguay Tenerife were promoted to the top Division of one of the toughest leagues in the world last summer and are just managing to keep their heads above water in the first couple of months, having played some formidable opponents.

Club bosses vowed that they would not compromise its future by getting heavily into debt to make the step up to the higher standard, and the gamble could well pay off as several teams are still winless at the bottom of the league while Uruguay have already netted crucial points.

The side’s home games in Santa Cruz are attracting crowds of around 2,500, proving that Tenerife has a solid mass of fans for indoor football.
