· The Liga Femenina 1 semi-final series and the grand final title playoff will have the exceptional support of Endesa, which is sponsoring the final stretch of the 2016-17 season. The semi-finals begin this Friday in Salamanca.
Within the framework of a historical agreement reached with the Spanish Basketball Federation, Endesa is increasing its commitment to Spanish basketball by sponsoring the final stretch of the Liga Femenina 1 2016-17 season: the semi-final playoffs and the grand final. Endesa’s commitment to basketball is based on it being a sport that represents teamwork, intelligence, self-improvement and sportsmanship; attributes with which the companies identifies.
Endesa’s commitment to basketball has enabled the company to become one of the most important sponsors of sporting events in Spain. A commitment to basketball, which led Endesa to become a partner of the FEB and the National Team in 2012, when a relationship was established that has done nothing but grow since then; the 2014 World Cup, activities within the Universo Mujer programme, which promotes women's basketball in Spain, the final phase of the Copa de la Reina, held last February in Girona, the recent Endesa 2017 Mini-basketball Championships of Spain and now the Liga Femenina 1 semi-final series and the grand final.
Alberto Fernández Torres, general director of Communication at Endesa, explains that “Endesa sponsors the Liga Femenina playoffs because it wants to highlight the company’s commitment to the world of basketball in general and in particular to female talent. The excellent performance of our teams in different national and international competitions, confirms that there is keen interest, up-and-coming players, present and future... and Endesa wants to continue to contribute and be a part of the indisputable success of Spanish basketball".
For the president of the FEB, Jorge Garbajosa, “this new support from Endesa with regard to women’s basketball is wonderful news for our Liga Femenina 1, because it attaches importance to the sport and recognises it as one of the great possibilities of growth and of the future. The live broadcast of all the games by Teledeporte during prime time, is without doubt another great step forward in the FEB’s efforts to promote our Leagues and in particular women's basketball".
