Headed to the Olympic Games with the Spanish national handball teams

  • We extend our sponsorship of the Spanish Handball Federation, which counts on Sacyr support since 2015.
  • The women’s and men’s teams will travel to Tokyo to compete for the Olympic medals from July 24 onwards.

The Spanish men’s and women’s handball teams stopped by Sacyr’s headquarters in Madrid before leaving for Tokyo. From July 24, both teams will participate in the 2020 Olympic Games, which will take place in the Japanese capital.

In the last ceremony before boarding to Tokyo, Manuel Manrique, president of Sacyr, and Francisco Blázquez, president of the Real Federación Española de Balonmano (RFEBM) (Royal Spanish Handball Federation), renewed the sponsorship agreement between the company and the Federation.

This agreement deepens Sacyr’s commitment to handball, which began in 2015.

To the signing ceremony came Carmen Martín, Silvia Navarro and Carlos Viver, representing the women’s team, the Guerreras, and Raúl Entrerríos, Viran Morros and Jordi Ribera, on behalf of the men’s team, the Hispanos.


Structuring element

Manuel Manrique highlighted “Sacyr’s extensive backing for sports as a structuring element of society, which makes economic development more sustainable and social. In this bet, our national handball teams are a unique example.” He added: “handball represents values that at Sacyr, we consider to be our own: talent, effort, and teamwork”.

Francisco Blázquez pointed out that: “the close collaboration with Sacyr based on the support to our sport from Manuel, the president, and all his team, symbolizes a joint project marked by our shared values. We only have words of gratitude for their constant support and permanent contribution to our national teams, here represented. This connection is a great asset to Spanish handball”.



Years of success

Since Sacyr started collaborating with the Federation, both national teams have garnered multiple wins: the Hispanos became European Champions at the European Men's Handball Championships in Croatia (2018), Austria, Norway, and Sweden (2020).

As for the Guerreras, they have obtained considerable results this season, notably, the 2019 World Women's Handball Championship in Japan, an unprecedented milestone for the national team.



Committed to sports

Since February 2020, the Spanish handball League is named after Sacyr: the Sacyr ASOBAL League. This competition is one of the most important internationally, and is also the one in which the Barça, the team with the most Championship wins (10 victories), competes.

Besides handball, Sacyr also supports individual athletes. Currently, Sacyr backs three elite triathletes: three-time world champion Mario Mola; three-time Paralympic world champion Dani Molina; and Olympic athlete Carolina Routier.
