Interview for Bilbao

Interview for Bilbao

“Accommodation, full-board and Champions League match”, this is how the newspaper El Correo entitles the article in which they talk about the work made by Football Impact with the football professional teams from Europe and even Asia. The interview was made to Gaston Iglesias, responsible of Communications of Football Impact and owner of Sports Marketing.

Javier Muñoz’s article tells that around 150 teams escape from the European and Asian cold winter and come to Spain looking for a warm weather and how they make an impact of over 50.000 overnights and 10 million euros.

The article emphasized the importance of this business in the southern and eastern Spain economy, because it happens in a time when tourism is almost absent. This way it helps to the employment creation. Some hotels that closed during the winter season are opening to acommodate these teams.

Iner, Borussia Dortmund, Moenchengladbach, Ausburgo, Feyenoord, PSV Eindhoven, Werder Bremen, Schalke 04, Lokomotiv y Spartak Moscú, Sparta Praga, Dinamo Kiev, Basilea, Standard Lieja… are some of these teams, but the list goes on and on.

The quality and state of the grass is basic for these teams, but the chance to perform high level games is important too. Good facilities, great matches and excellent services, that’s the reason why these teams choose us.
