Each Friday at Puerto del Carmen Market (10am-2pm) and Sundays at Teguise Market (10am-2pm) all info and merchandise can be obtained from Ian at the Clubs Stall
After three seasons wearing the same shirt the Rojillos (The Reds) will be wearing a unique new shirt for at least the next two seasons.
The shirt has been designed with the help of four people, myself, Brad (Lanzarote´s midfielder), my wife Anna and UK resident and Lanzarote holidaymaker Nico Neeks Dal Pozzo who was a major factor helping us with setting up the design.
I first met Nico at the Teguise Sunday market a few years ago when he bought a shirt and he and his dad joined me in going to watch UD Lanzarote play. I can sometimes be in a dodgy mood on Sundays as I get up at 5.15am to prepare the market stall at Teguise then endure the stress of preparing for a Lanzarote game. On top of that I had a stiff neck so I definitely wasn’t in the best of moods.
On the way down to the match I mentioned to Nico that I was looking to do a new design of the Lanzarote shirt and Nico said he would give it a crack. I don’t think he realised how difficult a job it was going to be. His patience was exemplary and after two years of swapping and changing and producing several sample shirts we came up with the end product.
To say that we are happy with the end product would be an understatement. The quality is second to none, on many shirts print will peel off but this has not happened to any Lanzarote shirt in years. We have added a unique extra and that is an outline picture of one of Lanzarote´s most famous volcanoes, La Caldera de los Cuervos (Ravens Crater) as well as embroided also on the back of the shirt Isla de los Volcanes.
I may be wrong but I do not believe any other shirt has a similar design. I feel extremely proud to be working alongisde UD Lanzarote and producing their replica kits and merchandise for the past 11 years. This is our fourth shirt during that period meaning we always keep the same design for at least two seasons but sometimes three.
During that time I have met so many great people who were or have become Rojillo fans. Many of these people are not just fans, the likes of Carole and Angela Spendley who help out with the raffle, escort the children on the pitch as mascots and so much more. Our German fan Frank who attended every game home and away last season and also donating 1000 Euros for the clubs cause for this season outlines his commitment.
If you do want to be a little different to the millions wearing a Messi or Ronaldo shirt then this is the shirt for you as you will certainly get noticed. There won’t be many people on your home turf that have a UD Lanzarote shirt.
