The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and UEFA have worked together to guarantee the sustainability of the women’s Champions League final, which will be played this Saturday (6:00 p.m.) in San Mamés, with a plan for this match that, among other measures , involves reducing plastic, launching a sensory room for autistic people or storytelling for blind people, according to a statement.

In addition, there will be wheelchairs for people with reduced mobility, as well as inclusive activities that will take place this Saturday morning in Lezama, the Athletic Club sports city, with an adapted and inclusive 7-a-side soccer match.

“The RFEF, through the Department of Equality, Social Responsibility and Sustainability, works closely with UEFA’s powerful sustainability area, in a constant collaboration that allows us to share synergies, experiences and also receive support to implement actions of interest,” The federal entity reported in its statement.

In this way, a compensation fund has been created that allows the tons of carbon generated by the matches organized by UEFA in our country to be converted into investments for sustainable projects. This amount joins the ‘Hat-trick’ sustainability projects financed by the European organization.

All of them have allowed the RFEF to implement narration for the blind in the matches of the women’s and men’s teams, create ‘Palcos 0’ to make social causes visible or launch relaxation rooms for autistic people at matches.
