If you close your eyes and put your finger on just about any part of the globe, chances are you have found a place where people love football – even if the place is in the middle of an ocean! Football is a big thing also in the Maldives and you’d be hard-pressed to find a Maldivian who can’t do at least a little bit of dribbling! At Hurawalhi, we do our best to support our team’s interests and encourage recreation and team building as this reflects positively also on the level of service you get to experience as a guest.
Hurawalhi F.C. was established soon after the opening of the resort, and already made it to the finals of the renowned cup organised every year by sister property, Kuredu.
The role of captain is currently held by Anif, one of our attentive island hosts, and the team are all too happy when guests express interest in joining a game! Apart from the fabulous results that young club achieved so far, the team are also proud to have hosted the one and only Rio Ferdinand when he dropped by for a visit at the resort, and were all too happy to showcase their skills to Mo Salah of Liverpool F.C. and Victor Lindelof of Manchester F.C., to name but a few.
Why not bring your pair of boots and join Hurawalhi F.C. for a unique local experience during your Maldives’ holiday.
