Valencia CF Players Wear Jersies Written in Nepalese !!!

Posted on the 20 May 2015 by Sampathkumar Sampath
This famous club was established in Mar 1919  with Octavio Augusto Milego Díaz as its first president; incidentally, the presidency was decided by a coin toss.  It moved to the Mestalla Stadium in 1923, having played its home matches at the Algirós ground ! Seismicity in the Himalaya dominantly results from the continental collision of the India and Eurasia plates, which are converging at a relative rate of 40-50 mm/yr. The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed 9,000 people and injured more than 19,000 according to reports.  It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. The earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest.  Thousands were rendered homeless – some monuments were flattened too.   A second major earthquake occurred on 12 May 2015 at 12:35 NST – this  too caused deaths ! Valencia is the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona.  The Port of Valencia is the 5th busiest container port in Europe and busiest container port on the Mediterranean Sea.  Valencia was founded as a Roman colony in 138 BC. The city is situated on the banks of the Turia, on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Valencia Club de Fútbol also known as Valencia CF, is a famous Spanish football club based in Valencia. They play in La Liga and are one of the most successful and biggest clubs in Spanish football and European football. Valencia have won six La Liga titles, seven Copa del Rey trophies, two Fairs Cups (which was the predecessor to the UEFA Cup), one UEFA Cup, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, and two UEFA Super Cups.  Founded almost a century ago in 1919, they are planning to move to new 75,000-seater Nou Mestalla in the north-west of the city.  Valencia are the third most supported football club in Spain, behind heavyweights Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.  They did it in style.  Spanish first division football club Valencia extended solidarity towards the Nepal earthquake victims by wearing jerseys with the names of the players written in Nepali in a La Liga match.   The Spanish giants wore the special shirts in their game against Celta Vigo on Sunday, and the jerseys will be auctioned off to raise money for the relief effort.  It was a nice gesture as players had their names written in Nepali during their 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo. Valencia CF players wear jersies written in Nepalese !!! you are reading it right - it is Paco AlCacer The one-off shirts will now be auctioned off to help raise money for the worldwide relief effort. Valencia partnered with the Red Cross for the charitable initiative, and will have won fans from across the football community for the gesture. On the field, a Nicolas Otamendi strike cancelled out Pablo Hernandez's opener for Celta Vigo and the match ended a 1-1 draw. Nepalese is an Indo-Aryan language. It is the official language and de facto lingua franca of Nepal and is also spoken in India, Bhutan and Burma. The Nepalese scripts are a group of Brahmic scripts of the Kathmandu Valley.   The alphabets are largely in DEvanagari.  With regards – S. Sampathkumar
