March in support of Recre

A march in support of Recreativo Huelva is due to be held on Thursday evening as Spain’s oldest club faces an uncertain future.

AS reports a crowd of around 10,000 is expected to protest against the club’s board and former players, including Spain international Santi Cazorla, have offered their support.

Recreativo have been under a financial embargo for more than 18 months over a €14.5m debt and the protest is to highlight the situation under majority shareholder, Uruguay-based company Gildoy Espana and their representative Pablo Comas, the club President.

“We aim to raise awareness throughout Spain of the risk to Recreativo,” protest organiser Olga Garrido said.

“We’re talking about the dean of Spanish football, the heritage of Huelva and all of football in this country.

“[The march will] show Huelva loves their Recre, will fight for him and won’t let him die.”

A fund has been established to allow a supporters’ trust to take ownership of the club, now in the Segunda B.
