IBERDROLA DIVISION OF HONOUR

The Iberdrola Division of Honour was created in January 2017 after Iberdrola signed an agreement with the Royal Spanish Rugby Federation to sponsor the Women's Division of Honour.

The championship was launched on 15 January; eight of the best national women's rugby teams have been playing against each other for the past four months. The final match was played in Burgos where the team from Madrid, Olímpico de Pozuelo, undefeated all season, became the champion after winning the match against CRAT Universidade da Coruña, pulling out a victory with a very close score of 22-21.

NATIONAL WOMEN'S XV RUGBY TEAM

In addition to the Iberdrola Division of Honour, the company has also been sponsoring the National Rugby Team since October. Known as las Leonas, the girls of the national rugby team are the standing European Champions.

In addition, the national rugby team has secured a place in the 2017 World Cup in Ireland after winning the qualifying match against Scotland, with a final score of 25-15. Therefore, the Spanish team will play in Group B of the World Cup, with England, the USA and Italy.
