Another of those harmed by the RFEF headquarters hype is Peña Deportiva. Of all those representing Second Division B, only three unfortunates (plus those who reached the place by other means) crossed the First or Second Club. Ponferradina will therefore have to visit the Santa Eulalia del Río Municipality (Ibizan municipality, with 36,457 inhabitants). It sounds like a clearly placid trip: a smaller rival, try one of Spain's most touristy beach resorts in winter … But the island party is reserved for only one team and this will be the winner. For this, & # 39; Ponfe & # 39; will have to overcome one of the revelation sets in all of Second Division B. It's not typical for a newly promoted to get the records Raúl Casañ's team is getting.

For a riot and a riot, the club is much more than football. He also belongs to his people, organizes meals and encourages sports development representing athletics, handball, cycling, gymnastics, futsal or even chess. Also other cultural disciplines such as theater or tutoring. They even like to act as fortune tellers on social networks. "The number is the year of foundation (31,335) and on December 22 the day of retirement"they play on Twitter as a campaign for their Christmas lottery. If it rings and there is a drop, there will be about thirty people who will have to wait for the retirement mentioned above.
