Last June, the Women’s National Team that will fight for the title in the World Basketball Championship to be held in September in Tenerife was presented in the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) headquarters. DIA, sponsor of the FEB, wants to share this dream and wishes them the best so that it becomes a reality.
The presentation ceremony brought together the new Secretary of State for Sport, María José Rienda, the President of the FEB, Jorge Garbajosa, representatives from the sponsoring companies, the 16 players and the coach, Lucas Mondelo.
Laia Palau, captain of the National Team, pointed out that “this World Cup is hope, it is an opportunity, it is the recognition of our history and it is a way of upholding women’s basketball. It is a shared dream for many people”.
The President of the Spanish Basketball Federation, Jorge Garbajosa, showed his pride for “a National Team that is defined by its harmony in and out of the court and that is capable of renewing its hope every year”.
The new Secretary of State for Sport acknowledged the work of the FEB and the support of the sponsors to make “sport and women’s basketball a reference”.
The event also meant the launch of the hashtag that will accompany the Women’s National Team during the Preparatory Phase and the World Cup, #UnSueñoCompartido.
