COMPETITION: Win a copy of The Frying Pan of Spain: Sevilla v Real Betis: Spain's Hottest Football Rivalry

Football Espana has a copy of the highly-anticipated upcoming book The Frying Pan of Spain - detailing football in the city of Seville - to give away.

The Frying Pan of Spain: Sevilla v Real Betis: Spain's Hottest Football Rivalry is released on 12 August, and have a copy to give away.

The author of the book, Colin Millar, is the editor for Football Espana with his book covering football in the city of Seville, his adopted home.

Seville is the capital of Spain's Andalusian region and is the life and soul of the nation. Enchanted with effortlessly stylish bars and colourful buildings, this is a charismatic metropolis doused in the endless sun of southern Spain.

The city is also home to two historic institutions of Spanish football - Real Betis and Sevilla - and when they go head-to-head to contest El Gran Derbi, the rest of Spain can only watch in awe.

This is a pulsating and arresting experience which encapsulates the beautiful game in all its raw, spellbinding brilliance. Spanish football is more than Barcelona and Real Madrid. Much more.

The city contrasts uptown Sevilla with downtown Betis. Los Rojiblancos pitted against Los Verdiblancos. Sevillistas and Beticos.

Nothing can compare to this beautiful city and the crazy passion for football that it produces, either in Spain or Europe. Colin Millar - who made the city his home - charts the illustrious history of football in the city and explores how both clubs represent a way of life for Sevillanos.

To pre-order a copy of The Frying Pan of Spain, it is available to buy on Amazon and from the Book Depository.

To be in with a chance of winning a free copy of the book, you simply have to retweet this tweet and make sure you are following Football Espana and Colin on Twitter.

The competition closes on Thursday 15 August, 12pm GMT.
