Gijón and Iberdrola España support the Spanish national team


 

Making history! The residents of Gijón and holidaymakers have thrown themselves into the women's national football team's semi-final match against Sweden. In the Iberdrola España fan zone, set up in the popular Plaza del Parchís, the triumph of Spain, who will play in the World Cup final next Sunday, has been experienced with immense emotion and joy.

The good energy was present during the match, which they were able to follow on a giant screen. There were moments of great tension and emotion and, during the half-time break, the creator of the national team's anthem, Elena Farga, sang "Está por venir" for everyone present. Paula Valdivia, player of Motive.co - Club Balonmano La Calzada and Lucía Martiño, surfer and Iberdrola Ambassador for this sport, were also there following the exciting match.

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 Primera División Femenina RFEF since 2016, a nomenclature that changed in 2018 to Primera Iberdrola, 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 Queen's Cup and the Iberdrola Spanish Super Cup, as well as the Iberdrola Primera Federación.

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%.
