Unbeaten and hopeful
Marino look to the big time
The end of the season is still a long way off but football fans in south Tenerife could well have something to cheer about come June as local side CD Marino continue their determined push for promotion to Division 2B.

17.02.2015 - The Los Cristianos team are currently locked in a fascinating battle with Lanzarote at the top of the Canary Islands’ Division 3 group.

Unbeaten after the first half of the season, Marino would have been out of sight as pace-setters had it not been for the many draws recorded, including against theoretically weaker opposition.  

Fans at the Antonio Domíngez stadium in Playa de las Américas are crossing their fingers that the table-topping form will continue in the second half of the season, and that Marino will feature in the promotion play-offs against another regional group winner.

The club, founded in 1936, has spent a total of six seasons in Division 2B during its long history, the last being in 2012-13 when it coincided with its more illustrious rivals, Tenerife, who went on to win the league and promotion to Division 2.
