June 6, 2016. Exciting news today, my friend Nelo Vingada will be joining our interactive fan zone on June 15th.

Nelo is a distinguished manager who has coached national teams around the globe and most recently Maritimo, a top tier team in the Portuguese Primeira Liga (see his honors below).

Maritimo met Benfica in the Cup Final in May and despite the defeat, Maritimo gave a good showing. Under Nelo’s guidance, Maritimo fought off relegation and remained in the top tier. We are thrilled to have Nelo as part of our team.
