Valencia, on the east coast of Spain, is the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third-largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona, with around 800,000 inhabitants in the administrative centre.
The city is situated on the banks of the Turia, on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula, fronting the Gulf of Valencia on the Mediterranean Sea. Its historic centre is one of the largest in Spain. The heritage of ancient monuments, views and cultural attractions makes Valencia one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. It is also the place of origin of the most popular spanish dish: the Paella.
Due to its long history, this is a city with numerous popular celebrations and traditions, such as the Fallas, which were declared as Intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in November 2016.
You can check this article in Wikipedia and the official tourism site for more information about the city.

Registration is currently CLOSED. However, we are accepting registrations for substitute players. Substitute players will fill last-minute cancellations, in strict order as they registered (refer to the list of Substitute Players) or, if there are enough interested people, we might form new game tables (we will always aim to leave one or two substitute players, so to form new tables we'll need, at least, 5 interested people). Anyways, please keep in mind that people registering after August 15th are not guaranteed to get to play (but they are not required to pay any fees beforehand, either).
If you wish to register as a substitute player, please fill this form and we'll contact you within 24h to confirm your status.
