Villarreal promise fans 'a party' at Coopers

Villarreal take on Adelaide United tonight and are hoping to turn up the entertainment dial for local fans at Coopers Stadium.

The La Liga side kick-off mammoth off-season of star-studded football teams visiting Australian shores.

And Villarreal coach, Marcelino Garcia, said they’re hoping to show-off Spanish football at its entertaining best.

"We seek victory, but at the same time, make it an enjoyable party for all,” Marcelino told

“We are so far enjoying this experience and this country, but we know we have to play two games and we want to give a good image.

“We want to be competitive, because we know that our opponent will be and we are obliged to try to play well and put on a show.”

After taking on the Reds, Villarreal head to Brisbane to face-off against the Roar led by new coach John Aloisi.

Adelaide United coach, Josep Gombau, together with Isaias and Osama Malik said that for the Reds, it’s a real privilege to compete against a team like Villarreal.

"It is an honor to play with a team like Villarreal and that they’ve come to play a game in our town, on our pitch,” Gombau said.

“We have already seen this season what is capable of Villarreal, and the truth is that they have had a great season.

“We want to show Australian football and the growth we’ve had in this country, as it’s a game that can be seen in Spain and that is a great motivation to play well."
