LaLiga continues its mission to make us as easy as possible these days when we must all stay at home. Thus, he never ceases to amaze us with the launch of new initiatives within his campaign ‘LaLiga is played at home’. After the success reaped in #LaLigaSantanderChallenge, the virtual challenge that the influencer Ibai Llanos launched to clubs in the form of a FIFA20 tournament and which raised over 142,000 euros for UNICEF in the fight against COVID-19, arrives ‘LaLigaSantander Fest’.

It will be broadcast simultaneously in all countries of the world through all LaLiga channels, the LaLigaSportsTV platform, the Movistar LaLiga channel and the signal of all international broadcasters who wish to do so.

After the extension of the state of alarm, for which the Spanish must stay at home, at least, for three more weeks, all these leisure proposals come as breaths of fresh air. Being aware of this, in LaLiga they have launched this idea in collaboration with Banco Santander, Universal Music, GTS and the rest of their sponsors. Without forgetting, of course, the important role that players, clubs and artists play in this team. Together, they have managed to organize the first charity festival with a global impact, the purpose of which is to raise funds to acquire the necessary products to face the pandemic that our country is also suffering.

In this solidary virtual macroconcert they will participate 20 players from LaLiga Santander teams, who have not hesitated for a moment to join this initiative. And, next to them, they will be 20 national and international artists of the size of Alejandro Sanz, David Bisbal, Aitana, Sebastián Yatra or Antonio Orozco. These are the first names confirmed, but we will meet the other artists who will lend their voice to this cause throughout the week, through LaLiga's social networks and the profiles of the artists and players themselves. Of course, all of them will participate in this ‘LaLigaSantander Fest’ from their respective homes.
