  • Gijón's central Plaza del Parchís will host a space designed for anyone who wants to cheer on the women's national team in their first World Cup semi-final.


Iberdrola España will be cheering on the women's national football team from Gijón tomorrow in a fan zone located in the busy Plaza del Parchís

Fans of the national team will be able to follow the match on a giant screen, share a breakfast, win prizes by participating in football-related activities and, of course, send the best of energy to the Spanish team.

Jorge Vilda's team will play in the first semi-final in the history of the women's national team in a World Cup after defeating the Netherlands.

From 9.15 am on Tuesday 15 August, the capital of the Costa Verde will be the setting for the fourth stop of this animation tour, which has already visited the cities of Valencia, Malaga and Madrid, and which will allow people from the antipodes to experience Spain's match with all its enthusiasm.

Fans who come to the Fan Zone will share the excitement of the match between La Roja and Sweden with Elena Farga, singer and creator of the national team's anthem, Está por venir, with Paula Valdivia, player of Motive.co - Club Balonmano La Calzada, with Lucía Martiño, Iberdrola España Surfing Ambassador and with Paloma Pujol, Spanish freestyle football champion.  

Iberdrola España has sponsored the Spanish women's national football team since 2016 and created the hashtag #EllasJueganSoñamosTodos to collect all the messages of support for the team on social networks.

The company was the first to promote women's football, naming the competition Iberdrola España Primera División Femenina RFEF from 2016, a nomenclature that changed in 2018 to Primera Iberdrola España, until the 2021/22 season. 

Now, it continues to exercise its commitment to the professionalisation of women's football by promoting women's football competitions, such as the Iberdrola España Queen's Cup and the Iberdrola España Super Cup, as well as the Iberdrola España First Federation.

It is also the main promoter of women's sport in our country. It supports 32 national sports federations, gives its name to 32 top-level leagues and 100 other competitions. The promotion reaches two out of every three federated women in Spain - a total of more than 600,000 sportswomen - and the number of women's licences in the Federations it supports has grown by 36%.
