So that we can participate in one more Football season and guarantee the preservation of the cultural Folklore exchanges and travel tours to our associates.
Associação Desportiva, Recreativa e Cultural de Palmaz is an association, fully licensed, dedicated to cultural and sporting activity (Folklore and Football), located in Plamaz, vicinity of Oliveira de Azeméis, Aveiro, Portugal.
The objective of our participation on PPL platform is to to promote the ADRCPA and to raise funds that enable our athlets to have minimum conditions and infrastructures for their sporting activities, as well as the maintenance and dissemination of cultural and ethnographic traditions of the local population through its Folklore - a very important activity to a predominantly elderly population that need this kind of activity to keep them active and happy.
Additionally, the ADRCPA annually organizes tours to different regions of Portugal in order to give the opportunity of its associates, together with family and friend, to travel and get to know other customs, landscapes and different cultural realities.
For these projects continue to be viable, and given the increasingly limited financial contribution by government entities, including the City of Oliveira de Azeméis and the Parish of Pinheiro da Bemposta, Travanca and Palmaz, and because we are creative , dynamic and enterpreneurs, we ask the support of all who want us to continue to keep alive the traditions of a region and to enable all residents to practice healthy activities and to feel pride in their village and its infrastructures.
Normally, the Association's activities are supported by sponsorship donation of small and medium-sized companies and local businesses, but mostly by the investment of the participants (Football squad players pay half their filliation to Aveiro Football Association and Folklore participants pay their own outfits, for example).

September 2014 to May 2015 - Participation with a team in the II Division of Aveiro District Football Association
