Do you know there was BIAFRAN FOOTBALL CLUB (1969-1978)?

As the Republic of Biafra was founded, and the war started, a group of idealistic young football lovers gathered together in Valls, Barcelona (Spain) to honour the heroic struggle of the Biafrans.
They created a symbolic pennant& founded the Biafran Football club in order to draw world attention to the plight of Biafra, using one of the most focused methods known to humanity—Football. CF Biafra had about hundred players from Reus to Pla, from Nulles to Tarragona.
They settled in El Vilar, within the federated amateur league and rode all the way to the Third Regional League.

Half a century later, the golden anniversary of the Biafra football club was celebrated.
