The UE Balàfia will collaborate with IRBLleida in a pioneering project
Two soccer base tournaments will be organized to raise funds to promote and develop biomedical research in Lleida
The Unió Esportiva Balàfia will collaborate with IRBLleida in a pioneering agreement in the province. The club will promote two annual base football tournaments to raise funds for biomedical research in order to improve the health of the population. The agreement was signed yesterday by the President of the EU Balàfia, Francisco Rodríguez, and the head of promotion of IRBLleida, Josep Maria Bosch. With this initiative, this football club will be the first sports entity to appear on the set of collaborating and sponsoring companies of IRBLleida.
Ramon Folguera, responsible for marketing of the EU Balàfia explained that "the two tournaments will take place, the first between May and June, and the second in September, in the middle of the base football pre-season." Each tournament will be played by sixteen teams from Lleida and counties and, as detailed, the idea is to set a contribution for the participating clubs and that, in addition, they can donate individual players, parents and relatives. Another way of collecting will be the service of the bar and all the collected money will be allocated entirely to IRBLleida.
