Tour providers apologise to West Brom fans after Benidorm venue change

By Matt Wilson | West Bromwich Albion | Published:

Baggies fans have received an apology from the tour operators in charge of Albion's pre-season trip to Benidorm after the venue of their match was moved.

Saturday's friendly against Villareal will now take place six miles and 15 minutes away at Ciudad Deportiva Camilo Cano in La Nucia.

It was initially due to take place in the centre of Benidorm, but there were fears last week it could be 45 minutes away at Villareal's hotel.

However, Albion have worked hard with tour providers Complete Sports Solutions 'to find a venue accessible to Baggies fans making the trip.'

A statement said: "We are advised that it is easily accessible by road and contains bars, shaded areas and cafes for refreshments.

"CSS would like to apologise to Albion fans for any inconvenience caused by the change."

It's estimated more than 500 Baggies fans could be making the trip to Benidorm.
