Tenerife Football Club Celebrates Centenary

Football was being played in Tenerife at the beginning of the 20th Century, brought to the island by British sailors who visited the city's port and by the large British colony that existed in Santa Cruz de Tenerife at that time. In 1908 there was news of a Club Inglés (English Club) and soon various clubs were formed. 

Club Deportivo Tenerife (Tenerife Football Club) was founded on November 21, 1912 under the name "Tenerife Sporting Club", and in 1922, after a crisis, it was re-founded with the current name and the constitution of a new board. 

The origin is confusing, since the directives established August 8, 1922 as the sole date of foundation, although events were held for the fiftieth anniversary both in 1962 and in 1972, the 75th anniversary in 1997 and centenary in 2022. 

The club's home ground has been the Heliodoro Rodríguez López Stadium, after leaving the Campo de Miraflores in 1925.

The meeting will take place in the Vatican on August 17 and will be one of the central acts of the centenary that the club is celebrating throughout 2022.

The CD Tenerife delegation, headed by its president Miguel Concepción, will travel to Rome and will participate in the General Audience of the Holy Father at the Vatican. They will have the opportunity to share a meeting with the Pope and to express their gratitude to him for this great deference towards all those who have belonged to and are part of CD Tenerife during its first century of life.
