CD Tenerife win promotion to Spain’s Premier football league

Tenerife football fans are celebrating Club Deportivo (CD) Tenerife’s promotion back to Spain’s Premier League after a 1-0 victory over Catalonian side Girona. Tenerife were already top of the Second Division, and needed just one point with two games to go to confirm their rise. They are now in a league that will see them play against the likes of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. The Plaza de España in Santa Cruz was filled with blue and white Tenerife flags for the event as fans watched the away game on giant screens, and after the victory, cars tore around every town and village with horns blaring. The President of the Tenerife Cabildo, Ricardo Melchior, has promised to jump in the Plaza de España’s fountain on his return with the victorious team.  Canarias24Horas
