Battle of the Mediterranean

On Friday two of FIFA’s smallest nations go head-to-head at the Algarve Stadium, Faro when Gibraltar play Cyprus in a World Cup qualifier. Kick-off is 7.45pm and free tickets can be collected at the Stadium prior to the game.

Last November Cyprus won the reverse fixture 3-1 but Gibraltar will be looking for their first ever points in World Cup football.

On Tuesday, June 13 the Gibraltar U21 team will play Armenia U21 at the same venue in a UEFA Championship qualifier – 7pm kick-off and free admission.
