The Douro Cup has a weight renewal. André Gomes, a Portuguese international footballer, will be the official ambassador for the second consecutive year, whose social character is widely recognized.

“Above all, Douro Cup is the gathering of the children of our city, Vila Nova de Gaia, and it’s the pleasure to play football, the union that is created with the event. It is a social event that gives young people even more strength to play sports, an initiative that joins all age groups and various social statuses”, stresses André Gomes, for whom “the fundamental thing is to unite, share experiences and enjoy sport to the maximum”.

After the success of the first edition, the midfielder returned to join the initiative and states that “the most important thing is that young people are happy”. “You must try to be so every day, because happiness is what matters most in your life. Sometimes we forget, but we must convey this affection and importance to the younger ones”.

Douro Cup 2018 runs from July 10 to 14, in Vila Nova de Gaia, with the participation of hundreds of athletes of various age groups.
