Greater commitment 

For Sacyr, being title sponsor for the league is an opportunity for its to strengthen its commitment to a sport that it has been linked with since 2015. In recent years, the multinational sponsored the Spanish Royal Handball Federation.  

Over the same period, the Spanish international women’s team, known as “las Guerreras”, achieved great success including placing second in the World Championship. Meanwhile, the men’s team, “los Hispanos”, claimed the European title on January 26, which it also won in 2018.    

A top competition in Europe 

ASOBAL was established in 1984 by 13 clubs and the first ASOBAL League was held in 1990-91. Some 16 clubs now compete in a championship that runs over a total of 30 days. 

Wednesday February 5 sees the start of the second round of the 2019-20 season with a match between Bidasoa Irun and ABANCA Ademar León, one of the most attractive of the competition as the teams in second and third place in the league clash.  

All Sacyr ASOBAL League matches are broadcast through the LaLigaSportsTV app and one is shown each week on the freeview channel, GOL. In total, 56 league matches, a Supercup and three ASOBAL Cups were broadcast in the first round.  

During the second round of the league, handball fans will be treated to watching five European champions who played for Spain: Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas, Raúl Entrerríos, Aitor Ariño, Aleix Gómez (all playing for Barça) and Adrià Figueras (Fraikin BM. Granollers).
