LaLiga Geunine

A total of 288 soccer players, 72 technicians, more than 300 volunteers and hundreds of fans of the 18 teams that form LaLiga Genuine, participated this weekend in the second phase held in Tarragona.

Respect for the values of football, the good atmosphere among players, technicians and fans, the camaraderie and teamwork were the main protagonists of an exciting weekend. In addition to the players, the fans showed exemplary behaviour game after game.

The novelty of this second phase was the exhibition of "Tu media cara", a project that the LaLiga Foundation wanted to join, as a social action to raise awareness of diversity and different capacities. 

All the players of LaLiga Genuine participated in this initiative that, from art, photography and drawing, aims to break with the barriers and prejudices that are established around disability. 

Luis Gil, Director of Competitions at LaLiga, Josep María Andreu, President of Nàstic de Tarragona, Olga de la Fuente, Director of the LaLiga Foundation, and Carles Navarro, President of BASF Española, were in charge of delivering the awards and medals to the participants of LaLiga Genuine.

Luis Gil thanked all participants for their great dedication in the competition and fair play and encouraged them to participate with the same enthusiasm in the third phase, which will take place on 13.14 and 15 April 2018 in Mallorca.
