The City of Soccer will wear a giant pink ribbon in the fight against breast cancer

A big pink bow, universal symbol of the fight against breast cancer and for the best prevention of this disease, will wear this Monday, October 19 in the Ciudad del Fútbol of Las Rozas as a show of support from the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to the group that suffers from it.

The president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales, wanted to send a message of encouragement to all women who suffer: “The fight against breast cancer is not a matter of a day, but of each and every day of the year“.

Rubiales has highlighted the importance of going to the doctor and performing routine cancer detection checks: “It is important that the whole society is aware and that prevention is increasing. We believe that sport helps to make this visible and we are delighted to be able to join. Together we will achieve it. “

An idea shared from positions of responsibility in women's football, where its director María Tato influences the Rubiales line: “we want to show our support for women, contribute to prevention, the fight and early detection, which would prevent many of the cases we now have.”

The women's coach Jorge Vilda, has shown his desire to lower the pink ribbon that has been hanging for several years on the facade of the RFEF to the pitch. “All women's football is with you: encouragement to continue fighting,” added the head of the national team.
