Spain Women’s National Team: Spain takes refuge in the City of Football
Spain’s last two matches in the qualifying phase for the 2023 World Cup, in which they will face Hungary and Ukraine this Friday and next Tuesday respectively, will be played at the Las Rozas Football Citywhose main field has a capacity for 1,500 spectators, as part of the agreement that the RFEF has with Iberdrola as promotion of the Sustainable City that is the federative headquarters. Said agreement is signed for the next five seasons at the rate of two duels per course.
It is noteworthy that after the European Championship, where the Spanish team generated so much expectation and where audience records were broken, the field chosen to host a duel between one of the eight best powers in the world was Las Rozas. This is not the first time this scenario has occurred. Last season, without going any further, It already happened in the Spanish Super Cup, which after not receiving any proposal ended up being played at the federative headquarters.
For a national team match to be played at any stadium, the request must be made through any regional federation, City Council, Provincial Council, Autonomous Community or entities or companies that own or transfer football stadiums and carries with it a canon -not very high- that the RFEF can negotiate in order to give visibility and recognition to its women’s team.
Better future prospects
From the Federation they are excited about the future, then, As MARCA has learned, there are already several proposals on the table to cover matches in the 2023 FIFA windowsyear of the World Cup and that has begun to generate expectation. There will even be several options to host level friendlies in the windows that still remain in 2022, and it may be one of them before The United States, number 1 in the FIFA ranking and a rival that has never been beaten, which aims to be played in El Sadar.
