Saturday Afternoon 28th of July: A Coruña GNOME Olympic Games. (from 18.00 p.m. to 20.00 p.m.). They will take place just across the street of the venue (literally, 50 meters from it). Luckily this year's venue has additional sports facilities like volleyball and basketball fields. Playing in this Cup is not easy, the soccer ball has the tendency to roll away from players and jogging has proven a challenge for some hackers. You can join the challenge yet here. Everyone is invited! Either to play or watch, or cheer.
