#FridayFocus – ParaHockey continues to grow in Spain with help of new sponsor

Posted On 17th June 2016

When we last checked in with Spain and its ParaHockey work, they had received the Infanta Sofia Award. Their work with the ParaHockey program, called Hockey Plus, continues to reap rewards as a new ParaHockey competition has been created and has secured a supporting partner. La Liga BBVA Hockey Plus was officially inaugurated on Saturday June 4th with a presentation of the teams that will take part in this new tournament, as well as a dinner and celebration held in Club Egara. The new trophy was also unveiled, to the excitement of everyone present.

This new tournament is yet another important step towards integration, and the Real Federación Española de Hockey and the Federació Catalana de Hockey are happy to have the support of BBVA and Fupar in this new and exciting ParaHockey league, which will begin its first season in 2016-2017 and brings together teams from all over Catalunya: Club Egara, Atlètic Terrassa, Polo, Barça, and Iluro just to name a few. This league, the first of its kind in the region, will have home and away games and a play off stage and is expected to have between 120 – 150 participating players. The match schedule will be published in September.
