Exciting news at Anfi! David Silva, the Manchester City player, has signed up to be the face of Anfi for the upcoming year and of course we are delighted to team up with our “local hero”.
David Silva, the twenty-six-year old mid fielder, was born just a stone’s throw away from Anfi in the village of Arguineguin, the bustling fishing town and home to the weekly market. As a child David enjoyed his first kick around with his friends on Anfi beach and over the years many of his family members and neighbours have been employed in Anfi.
Home from Home
Silva, along with his fellow neighbours, witnessed the evolution of the Anfi resorts – from the excavation of the first rocks from the mountainside a quarter of a century ago, to the award winning resorts that Anfi are today.
The Anfi Group CEO, Jose Trujillo, said, “What better ambassador than David Silva to represent Anfi to the world. He’s a local hero whose own personal success and development have paralleled that of Anfi. He has seen how Anfi has grown over the years and has experienced first hand the luxury of the resorts”.
Silva who will feature in a publicity campaign in the coming months in various European countries said, “I am really happy to lend my support to promote Anfi, such an important company for Gran Canaria and which has such firms roots in my town”.
He continued, “I’m proud to be from Gran Canaria and to be able promote my island and Anfi throughout all of Europe”.
Silva & Anfi Campaign
The publicity campaign will feature Silva’s image around the UK as well as other main European cities with the aim of encouraging people to visit Gran Canaria and increase Anfi’s brand recognition throughout its most important European markets.
