A FRIENDLY IN MEMORY OF FRAN CARLES ON MONDAY THE 21ST OF MAY

Next Monday, Sevilla FC will keep its promise by playing in a friendly against Linares Deportivo in memory of their late Captain, who died at the age of just 26 in the summer of 2016. All profits will go to the player's family

On the 8th of July 2016, Francisco José Pardo Garrido, a player more commonly known as Fran Carles and Captain of Linares Deportivo, died tragically after suffering a fatal haemorrhage at just 26 years of age. His sudden death shocked the world of football and Sevilla FC, who experienced something similar with the loss of Antonio Puerta, promised to take part in a friendly in memory of the player, whereby profits will be donated to the players family. 

The match will take place on Monday the 21st of May at 20:00pm at the Estadio Municipal de Linarejos. It will be the last game of the season for Sevilla FC, who just 2 days prior, on Saturday the 19th of May, will bring their La Liga campaign to a close with a home match against Alavés.
