Real Mallorca celebrate their official 100th birthday tomorrow (5 March) and play promotion-chasing Oviedo at 6pm in the Son Moix. It’s our biggest game so far in the new year as we enter the business end of the season. The match takes on special significance as it will be the first time new American owner Robert Sarver has seen Mallorca play at home. The millionaire American banker arrived by private jet on Wednesday from Phoenix along with associate and former professional tennis doubles champion Andy Kohlberg. On Thursday Sarver spent 1,000 euros in the club shop buying shirts and other bits of paraphernalia (those purchases must have just about cleared the shop out). Retired NBA basketball player and vice-president of Sarver’s company, Steve Nash, has arrived as well. Nash was a legend amongst basketball followers and many of the local press were drooling in his presence. It’s hoped the attendance of the owners in the directors’ box will give the Mallorca team a morale boost in what is going to be a difficult game.
