Iberdrola España and women's soccer
As part of our commitment to women's sports in Spain, we have been supporting women's soccer since 2016. We are the sponsors of the main club competition and main partner-sponsor of the national women's soccer team, as well as the U-19 and U-17 national teams, the Copa de la Reina and the Supercopa Iberdrola.
Within our ambassador program, we count on the key role of important players, such as Alexia Putellas and Irene Paredes, to continue paving the way for women's soccer to finally get the recognition it deserves.
In these years of supporting women's football in Spain, the national team has won multiple international tournaments at youth level. However, the great moment for women's football came in 2023, when the senior national team managed to beat England in the World Cup final to become world champions.
