Quote: ‘La Murada are the forgotten ones, we have the second highest level team in terms of senior category – after Orihuela CF – and our facilities are in very poor condition’

CD Murada have sent a message to the powers that be at Orihuela city council surrounding the conditions of the club’s facilities.

A statement from the club read: “From Club Deportivo Murada we want to thank the Department of Sports – Orihuela and the Orihuela City Council for giving us the use of the facilities of the Los Arcos Stadium to be able to train and play our match on the 2022-23 season against Novelda Union.  “Enviable facilities like those of the vast majority of Orihuela.

“Unfortunately, in La Murada we do not have that luck.  We have an increasingly deteriorated turf, that causes countless injuries to all our players and makes playing good football more difficult every day.

“The Orihuela city council has changed the grass in Espeñetas and in the Palmeral, together with the reseeding of Los Arcos and other renovations of sports centres.  We have been waiting for the change of grass for years.

“Our question is obvious: and La Murada? We are the forgotten ones, we have the second highest level team in terms of senior category (after Orihuela CF) and our facilities are in very poor condition.

“We have a swimming pool in poor condition, changing rooms without water when the grass is watered (which leads us to choose between showering or watering the grass for a better practice of the sport).

“We have a lawn that has hosted all the Orihuela teams, while they reformed the other fields, usual problems with hot water, etc. We’ll keep waiting…”.


CF Atletico Algorfa Femenino finished second in the 2022-23 campaign in what was an extraordinary season.

“Huge congratulations go to the warriors and Agustin Mompean, in what has been a difficult year.

“Also the great work of Bethany Testro, Miguel Sese Vital, José Guillen and Algorfa Town Hall,” said a club spokesperson.
