Given the extension of the time of confinement in Spain and the absence of LaLiga football, its fans are not forgotten. For this reason, it has organized in record time ‘LaLiga Santander Fest’, a charity festival with a global impact that seeks to raise funds to acquire medical supplies to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Along with all its sponsors, starting with Banco Santander, LaLiga has reached an agreement with Universal Music, one of the main record companies in Spain, to carry out this project in which music and sport come together.
The solidarity macro-concert will be broadcast next Saturday, the 28th from 6:00 p.m. to fans around the world through Movistar + (#Vamos and Movistar LaLiga) and LaLiga Sports TV. Twenty great national and international artists of the stature of Alejandro Sanz, David Bisbal, Aitana, Sebastián Yatra or Antonio Orozco have already confirmed their virtual presence.
In addition, twenty players from League teams will take part in the event from their homes. «From LaLiga we wanted to support all those people who will face their third weekend of quarantine and, at the same time, raise funds to acquire medical supplies. We are very happy with the great response we have received from all fronts. Footballers, clubs, artists and sponsors have all joined us in this initiative. And I am convinced that together we are going to create something, “said Oscar Mayo, director of Business and International Development of LaLiga, in the festival statement.
All the proceeds will be used to buy medical supplies to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The money will be channeled following the government’s health priorities, in coordination with the Higher Sports Council (CSD).
