Members of the Valencia CF board, along with several former players from the club, attended the renovated headquarters of the Agrupación de Peñas on Tuesday evening. Chairwoman Layhoon Chan, Director General Mateu Alemany and Executive Director Anil Murthy met with the supporters group association, and there were short speeches given to those in attendance.
“It’s been the work of every ‘peñista’,” said Agrupación President, Blas Madrigal. “Every member has contributed in their own way.”
“I hope this new space will have many peñistas visit and share many moments of joy and Valencianismo,” added Layhoon Chan.
“With 9 more matches remaining, the team are working hard. We hope to have more victories, more points and regain the excitement of the Valencianismo.”
Mateu Alemany addressed the Agrupación de Peñas for the first time since joining the club, and said that “I want to congratulate the president and all the peñistas who have collaborated on the renovation of this facility. It looks very nice and very authentic.”
“We want to get the club back to where it belongs, which is right at the top. I am convinced that we will start to see results within a very short time.”
The centre piece of the renewal is a wall banner listing the hundreds of supporters groups and their locations within the Valencian region. There are also further banners showing officially recognised peñas around Spain and the world.
