Tomorrow Barcelona Football’s Team and Manchester United will play at Wembley Stadium to fight for the Champions League Final. But every Saturday there’s a football match you shouldn’t miss if you’re in Marrakech: the Equity RAK Champions League, also known as football and beers. The beers at the swimming pool bar, of course.

As you can see in the picture we’ve got an incredible team composed by ‘Keita’ Zakaria and the breakers Hassan ‘Puyol’ and Abdel, ‘Messi’ our Argentinean client, the fashonista Ilhamm, Hanane ‘kick it off’… And with the amazing attendance of our chefs as spectators to cheer up the game!

It’s not the Champions League, but give us some time!
