The men’s Camilo José Cela University football team was crowned champions of the Madrid University League a sixth year running. The combination of UCJC’s win against Universidad Europea de Madrid (2-7) and the subsequent draws against Universidad Complutense and Universidad Politécnica, meant they took the league championships with two matches still to play.
The UCJC team celebrated their sixth league championship in their match against the Universidad Poltécnica, in the fifth fixture of the final stage of the league, where they won the match 2 to 1.
With this new championship, the UCJC team has qualified for the Spanish University Championship held from 18 to 21 April in Madrid, organised by the Sports Department of Camilo José Cela University.
