PALAMOS FOOTBALL CLUB

Palamós CF is a soccer team that was born in 1898. It is the oldest team in Catalonia, an area from Spain, and it was the first club founded by spain people. Palamos is a small village in the Mediterranean cost in the north of Spain. Is in Cataloniaa region of Spain, and the name of the coast where is Palamós is Costa Brava (“stormy coast”). Costa Brava is an area in the north of Catalonia, close to France. The reason of the name is because in this coast there are a lot of cliffs close to the sea.  

Now Palamos is playing in B second division, which is the third category division in Spain. In first division plays famous teams like Madrid and Barcelona; after this division there are the A second division and next is B second division. Now palamos team is not playing as well as last year, and very soon we will go down on third division. The best period for this team was since 1986 to 1995. During this time Palamos had a very good team, and Palamos got to play in A second division since 1989 to 1995. The key were players which signed up on 1986 and the coach (Waldo Ramos, the best coach of the club). In 1986 Palamos was playing in a very low category and then everybody was surprised because Palamos team got to win so many matches that the team was fear by the other competitors. Then Palamos team achieved to get to A Second division. It was lust like a dream, because Palamos were (and now is) a small village, and the other teams in that moment i that cathegory came from big cities. The dream lasted 6 years until 1995 in A second division, when the president started to lose money and then the dream finished. Team finished the season in seventeenth place in the league even although there were very good players. In one match, one player named Puche scored 6 goals which is one of the best records in Spain soccer leagues (and the result of the match was 7-1 in favour of Palamós). The reason of the seventeenth position was that president could not pay the money to the professional players of the team. Due to that Palamós team lost two cathegories at the same time until third division (all the competitors are from Catalonia). Four years ago, arrived to Palamós Dmitry Piterman. Piterman is a very eccentric man. He is from Russia, but he has the nationality of USA. When he was the president, he was trying to get the above division (B second division). He signed up many coaches in order to got it but he couldn’t. Then he decided to be the coach. Everybody was surprised, but it was incredible because Palamos team started to play very well and won a lot of matches. Palamos finished the season in first position and the team reached the B second division. Last year Piterman left the club and now it is very difficult to find another president who likes Palamós team, because now there are still economic problems in the team.

We are fans of the club since we were little. We travelled with players many times when team went to play matches by bus some years ago. We live in Barcelona which is 100 Km. far to Palamós. Many times we travel in order to see tha matches of our team.  In  internet we have a open forum where people put their point of view about the team, the next matches, etc... This forum was created by Raul who is a fan that lives very far of Palamós, in Palencia. The name is similar but Palencia is in the north-centre of Spain and the distance between Palamos and Palencia is about 900 Km. But despite of that, Raul is a fan who loves a lot Palamos team.

We hope that you like the web. In this web you can travel around the life of Palamos soccer team.
