Cadiz Things to Do: 210 reviews and 360 photos

 
 

In 2005-6 Cadiz CF went back into the premiere league although the season after they went back down to the second division.

Although Cadiz CF is certainly not the best football team is has an incredible following. No other second league team has a full stadium every week like La Carranza in Cadiz. The fans go wild: (especially if playing against local rivals Xerez CF) singing, chanting banging drums etc...

If you come to Cadiz and like football it is worth going to watch a game just to see the most dedicated fans in Spain. There really is a great atmosphere.

The photos were taken from my flat window. Yes, I get football for free!

The team, whose strip are yellow and blue, were nicknamed the Yellow Submarnines by a young supporter as they would (historically) always drop to the bottom of the table then rise back up again at the end (kinda like a sub I suppose and they certainly are yellow!).

De Cai Pisha!

Directions: In the New Town, just off of Cayentano del Toro avenue. Take the number one or five buses or take the train and get off at Estadio.
