It has been 5 years since the Davis Cup's Spanish team has played at home. The last time was in September 2013 and the Spanish team played against the Ukrainian team in Spain's capital city in an attempt to guarantee their permanence in the tournament.
This time, Marbella's Puente Romano Sports Complex has been the chosen venue for hosting the competition. It will be Spain against the United Kingdom on February 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2018. These two teams met 13 times before, the last occasion being 31 years ago, in 1986. The winning bet is in favour of Great Britain since up to now Spain has only managed to play against the UK 5 times. However, now we must take into account the field factor, the equality of both teams and the encouragement of 8,000 spectators.
On behalf of Engel & Völkers, we also want to show our support to the Spanish team all the way from the start of their journey in the competition to the finals. That is why we will be present at the club and support the Spanish team as the leading real estate company in Spain.
We will also have the tarpaulins with our brand image and a 20-second trailer that will be shown on the central track screen. To conclude, a team of experts will be at our commercial stand and available to all those interested in selling or buying a property.
In the event that Spain wins against the English team, they would face the winner of the match between Australia and Germany in the second round. Spain would be the host again since the draw has shown that the match is to be played in Spain.
The members of the Spanish team selected by Sergi Bruguera to play on this occasion are David Ferrer, Roberto Bautista, Albert Ramos, Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Carreño. Despite Rafael Nadal's absence due to injury, the captain of the Davis Cup team is sure to have chosen the best players that are even more prepared for the game. Sergi Bruguera has only been part of the team for 4 months, but he is eager to prove his worth and his ability to lead the Spanish team to success.
Those fans who can not go to Marbella will be able to watch the matches on TV, since the event will get national media coverage on Televisión Española and internacionals, and the BBC. Our brand, Engel & Völkers, will be present during the three days of the tournament with a strong presence both on and off the track.
