Celebrations as Las Palmas return to the Spanish top division Celebrations as Las Palmas return to the Spanish top division

Gran Canaria erupted with joy last night as Las Palmas' football team won promotion to the Spanish Primera Liga for the first time since 2002. 

 

Union Deportiva Las Palmas beat Real Zaragoza 2-0 last night, turning over a 3-1 deficit from the first leg of the tie and triggering a wave of yellow celebrations across Las Palmas and Gran Canaria. 

It was success at the third attempt after disappointment in the 2013 playoffs and getting within two minutes of promotion in the 2014 playoff final. The victory triggered a huge celebration in Las Palmas last night as fans, all dressed in yellow, came out of the stadium and bars to celebrate promotion and the chance to watch Las Palmas play Spain's top teams next year. Fans all over Gran Canaria celebrated long into the night and you can expect a few empty desks at Gran Canaria offices today. There are even unconfirmed reports of celebrations in Tenerife ;-)

It's not just the fans who have something to celebrate; promotion is expected to bring millions of euros in extra revenue to the island thanks to  extra hotel bookings and away fan spend. 

Pio Pio!!
