Iberdrola and the Royal Spanish Rugby Federation present the Iberdrola Honorary Division
- The agreement is part of the Universo Mujer initiative, in which the group is the main sponsor, in keeping with its commitment to women’s sport in Spain
- It is the first company to make a global commitment to promoting the participation of women in every area of sport
Iberdrola and the Royal Spanish Rugby Federation presented the Iberdrola Honorary Division today at an event held at the headquarters of the Higher Council for Sport. This championship will be launched this Sunday, with the eight best women’s rugby teams at national level taking part.
The Head of Sponsorship at Iberdrola, Carmen Cabrera; the Director of the Higher Council for Sport, Jaime González, and the Chairman of the Spanish Rugby Federation, Alfonso Feijoo, announced the company’s support for this competition, which makes it the main sponsor behind women’s rugby.
Iberdrola has been sponsoring the “lionesses” - the National Senior Women’s Rugby Team - since October. Under the terms of this agreement, it has extended its support for the sport with the oval ball and is now the official sponsor of the National Women’s Competition.
This means that what used to be called the Honorary Women’s Division League will now be called the Iberdrola Honorary Division. It will also have a new logo.
Speaking on behalf of the Spanish Rugby Federation, Alfonso Feijoo said he was pleased to welcome this new sponsor, which shares the values that rugby represents, such as teamwork, solidarity, integrity, respect, passion and commitment.
The Federation believes that the drive and energy of Iberdrola, which have already helped the lionesses become European champions and qualify for the World Cup in Ireland in 2016, will give the players in the Honorary Division the recognition and importance they deserve,
