We have the best team in our history. Now the time has come to speak out on the pitch. At Iberdrola we are with the national team, more than ever!

In August 2016, Iberdrola became the main promoter of women's football in Spain by naming the league Primera Iberdrola. Since then, the competition began to receive more and more visibility thanks to free-to-air television coverage and the celebration of several of the matches in first division stadiums. Women's football has become a sport that doesn't stop growing.

The electricity company is now the main sponsor of the National Women's National Women's Football Team, the Under-19 and Under-17 national teams, as well as the Copa de La Reina-Iberdrola and Supercopa-Iberdrola, among others. 

Our national football team has played in 4 European Championships and 2 World Cups, with its best qualification to the semi-finals. One of its star members, Alexia Putellas, has also made history by being the first Spaniard to win the Ballon d'Or and The Best in the same year - a year in which she joined Iberdrola as an ambassador for equality in sport.

Unstoppable rise of women's football

Competitions are more professionalised, more and more spectators are coming to the stadiums and television audiences are skyrocketing. The work carried out over the last few years, thanks to the support of Iberdrola, has had an impact on the women's categories of the Spanish national team. Spain is the current European runner-up in the U-17 category.

All this visibility and talent become motivation for girls and women, and it is already paying off: from 2015 to 2020 there was an increase of up to 42% in women's federated licences.
