The Paella Cup 2018 is the perfect combination of sport, culture and city. Our standard programme includes:
*organisation of the tournament (all matches, referees and international rival teams)
*arranging your accommodation
*transfers to and from the airport and the city centre
*social and cultural activities (Friday night BBQ and off course…Paella)
You also have the option of extending the program with additional days and/or more activities.
Matches will be played on two blue, astroturf pitches. Both pitches are within walking distance of each other and only a short, five-minute tram ride to the Malvarrosa beach. The hockey complex is one of the best in the area and offers additional services such as a gymnasium, football field, restaurant and padel courts. Competitive matches are organised by categories and age ranges.
Social and cultural activities
The tournament includes an BBQ Friday night at the hockey club with good food, friends and dancing, a picnic lunch on Saturday and a paella lunch after the awards ceremony on Sunday. In addition you can choose to add on activities such as:
* a three-hour bike tour through the gardens of the river Turia, la Ciudad de Artes y Ciencias and the bustling old town,
* organised visits to the colourful Mercado Central or one of the many city museums,
* a tapas tour complete with refreshing Sangria or Cerveza,
* dinner reservations at some of the best local spots,
* group tickets for football and basketball games.
During the tournament you will stay at a four-star hotel located next to the Cuidad de las Artes y las Ciencias, which marks the beginning of the river Turia, which is full of parks, museums and an aquarium. From the hotel, the central areas of the city are within walking and cycling distance, as well as well connected by bus and metro. There is a direct bus connection to the hockey pitches and beach. A proper breakfast buffet is served every morning.
While we handle everything you need once you have landed, including transport to and from the airport or station – purchasing your plane (to Manises Airport) or train (to Estació del Nord) tickets should be done directly via the airline or railway company.
