Mayor Toni Pérez highlights that all parties "have understood the generosity of a great project"
Racing Club Benidorm and Atlético Benidorm come together to create CF Benidorm by DV7 Group
Atlético Benidorm and Racing Club Fútbol Benidorm have made their union official today to form Club de Fútbol Benidorm, hand in hand with DV7 Group. An agreement was signed in the Mayor's office in which both entities agreed to join forces and create a club with more resources and more powerful in all its areas.
The project starts, as they have explained, with a very clear roadmap: to create the best football academy for the city of Benidorm and the province of Alicante, in which its professional, educational, and training nature will stand out, open to all children and girls and also to generate talent and reach professional football with the first team.
The mayor, Toni Pérez, highlighted at the event that "everyone has understood the generosity of a great project" and has celebrated that "the sporting vision, which was very important, is already very closed. Today we are already talking about the fact that there is capacity".
The former footballer and greatest exponent of DV7 Group attended the official act together with the management team of the brand, which sets itself the goal of "rising into the sports team with a first division management team" and with their minds set on "awakening the sleeping giant football in Benidorm".
Another of the great objectives will be to establish agreements with beach soccer, essential in the city, and with the veterans' association of the legendary Benidorm CD. The social nature of the project will be one of the hallmarks of the new entity.
CF Benidorm thanked the effort, generosity, and understanding of Racing CF Benidorm, its president, José Santiago, and the board of directors, and Atlético Benidorm, its president, Azeem Amir, and its board of directors, "for making this great football project for the city a reality and for the trust placed in the new managers”. A gratitude that they have also extended to the City Council "for their commitment to football and for the transfer of municipal facilities for the benefit of citizens and sport."
