First memorial football match for late Jesús Verdejo

UD Almería veterans will be playing CD Cieza at 12 noon this Sunday. The Anexo ground will host the game to pay emotional tribute to former the UD Almería director

The first memorial football match in memory of UD Almería director Jesús Verdejo, who was also the UD Almería veterans team promoter, will be held at the Anexo ground next to the the Power Horse Stadium. 
Club legends will feature in the UD Almería veterans and CD Cieza squads. In this way, an emotional tribute will be paid to Jesús Verdejo Vivas who passed away in November 2020. UD Almería veterans and the Club would like this memorial to last in time in a bid to always remember one of the most charismatic leaders of the Andalusian Club. 
Jesús Verdejo joined the board of directors of UD Almería in October 2002 when Manuel García assumed the presidency. Shortly after, Alfonso García acquired the the majority of the shares and took over the ownership of the Club, also becoming president. Jesus Verdejo remained in his organisational chart. For many years, he was the first team delegate coinciding with the first promotion of UD Almería to the top flight. He was a football enthusiast and loving man who dedicated plenty of his time to the Rojiblancos' Club and promoted the football veterans team.
UD Almería paid a moving tribute to Jesús Verdejo to recognise his work and career back in March 2016.
