The Comillas Story: "A Modest and Popular Club"

 - Transgaming 1

Comillas suffered from qualifying for first round of Copa del Rey. He had to take down Barquereño, whose fans traveled en masse to Logroño. He did this in an agonizing penalty, in which mistakes were repeated and goalkeeper Arróniz was erected as great savior. They represent an entire city, although they are no less humble. Also, its stadium, the 82nd World Cup, despite having an acceptable capacity for the Third Division, does not meet the necessary conditions and will have to travel to Las Gaunas. So your rival, Villarreal will try to ensure that this mythical "objective in Las Gaunas" does not turn against him.

The entity was born in 2006, although It is the result of a division of AD Loyola. In the beginning, however, they kept a branch agreement with this club and only in 2008 they definitely decide to separate their ways. The Board of Directors has chosen Comillas as a name for the Pontifical University of Comillas, belonging to the Jesuits. Miguel Angel Dear, the club's sports director, leaves history behind and focuses on the present. He dares to make a bold bet, though he will only make it if his team makes history. Thus, he responded to the AS test of the new Copa del Rey.
