Few people knew that castle construction is also taking place in this region of Arica known as Biafra Nation as in Valls Barcelona Catalonian. In May 1967, Biafra proclaimed himself independent. However, in the year 70, the Nigerian armed forces reunified the territory, persecuted by its language, its flag and its religion. A little earlier, in the late ’69,
a group of young football lovers gathered images of the new republic and created a first pennant-this is how the Biafra Football Club was founded. From Reus to Pla, from Nulles to Tarragona, they settled in El Vilar within the federated amateur league and riding to old Third Regional league. It had about a hundred players. Half a century later, about 50 people are now celebrating CF Biafra’s birthday.
Already extinct, the entity unveiled a small African corner: an unprecedented sports history. They had an amateur, a junior and organize basketball tournaments. Biafra was a mirror for those young people who supported the weight of the last stage of the Franco dictatorship. Vindictive sentiment pushed Valls to the other end of Africa (Biafra), Catalunya was almost going through the same situation I the hands of the Spanish government. The lack of economic resources became the end of the entity, in 1978. In Biafra nobody heard of it all until a little over a decade ago, when a Valladolid expedition visited the country, to speak with the head of the ethnicity and even attend her funeral.
The exhibition on the history of the Biafra Football Club can be visited until Tuesday in the Patio de Sant Roc. The official opening of the show will take place on Saturday with the participation of Biafra representatives and a conference where the Biafrans will be questioned as regards the situation for their struggle to be free from Nigeria.
