Anfi has been in the spotlight after holding a cocktail event and press conference with Man City mid-fielder David Silva in the Etihad Stadium, the home ground of Manchester City.
The high profile event, which was attended by 100 Anfi Members and a selection of British press, highlighted Anfi’s 25-year anniversary celebrations and Silva’s role as ‘Ambassador’ for Anfi.
After the press conference, Silva met more than a hundred Anfi Members in a private celebration where the twenty-six-year old happily posed for photographs and signed autographs while he blew out the candles on a cake to mark Anfi’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
The Anfi Members in attendance were delighted at being able to visit the stadium and to meet Silva in person, who was charming and friendly. It was a pleasure to see generations of Anfi Members at the event, as owners brought along their grandchildren who were avid Man City fans.
During the event Silva commented that Anfi is a company, which “can be proud of playing in the premiership league of tourism.“A company that is very important to Gran Canaria and located where I grew up and played football as a boy. They have trusted me to promote their name Europe-wide and I’m proud to be part of the Anfi family. I think it is paradise and believe everyone should know about it!”
He went on to say, “I am very happy to support and promote Anfi, which is a very important employer on my island and is deeply rooted in my community. I’m proud to promote its image of Gran Canaria and Anfi throughout Europe”.
Also present at the event was Anfi group CEO, José Luis Trujillo, who commented, “We have chosen Silva as the ambassador for Anfi, because he embodies the same winning and entrepreneurial spirit as our company. David was born in Arguineguin in the south of Gran Canaria where Anfi is located and he has seen the whole project develop since he was a child.”
“Anfi is also proud to sponsor the junior football team of Arguineguin, where David learned his skills and where future champions will surely come from. We’re looking forward to the future and Anfi is ready to score a goal against the crisis with David “.
The event sparked great interest within the press and was deemed a success by the Anfi team and Anfi Members in attendance. And as you can see in the photos everyone had a great time toasting Anfi’s 25th anniversary.
