Newly rich Malaga Sheikh up La Liga - Yahoo! Eurosport UK: "closest most of the Costa Del Sol's 300,000 British and Irish expatriates go to the city of Malaga is when they pass through its charter hub airport en-route to the resorts or hillside villas they call home. Many are aware of the existence of nearby Primera Liga side Malaga CF through match reports in the local English language media, but for most their interest remains a passing one.

Some remain indifferent to Spanish football, preferring to keep in touch with British teams by watching games on satellite television; the proliferation of live football meaning it is possible to watch almost every Premier League tie. That doesn't satisfy everyone, not least those who crave the match-going experience that the small screen can never provide - that's why they follow Malaga.

Depending upon the opposition, up to 3,000 British fans travel to Spain's sixth biggest city of 534,000 to watch the Boquerón (CF Malaga's nickname named after the locally caught fish). In 1999, fans formed an International Supporters' Club based at The Tavern pub in Marbella. It now boasts hundreds of members and organises coach travel to all the home games, with demand peaking for the visits of Barça and Real Madrid."
