The women’s basketball team will play a triangular match in Segovia to prepare for the Olympic Games


The Spanish women’s basketball team will play a triangular match in Segovia from July 22 to 24 to prepare for the Olympic Games, in which it will face two of the best teams in the world, such as the number three in the ranking, Australia, or the fifth, Canada, as confirmed by the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) this Monday.

The team led by Miguel Méndez will play against Australia on July 22 at 8:00 p.m., and on the 24th at the same time against Canada, a team they already faced in the Pre-Olympic, with victory for the Spanish. On the 23rd it will be the turn of Australia-Canada.

The three games will be played in the Pedro Delgado pavilion. Tickets, managed by the Federation, will have a popular price. If you want to purchase them separately for each match, the prices range between 5 and 15 euros, depending on the area; If you buy a pass for all three matches, the price ranges between 10 and 30 euros, depending on the area.

The triangular one, on which the City Council and FEB have been working for months, also includes an open day to witness the training sessions. The three teams will arrive in Segovia days before the triangular match and will remain in the Castilian-Leonese city for around a week.

The mayor of Segovia, José Mazarias, stated that the people of Segovia will have “the privilege of being direct witnesses of the last test in the fine-tuning of these three powerful teams before entering the most prestigious competition on the planet.”

For her part, the president of the FEB, Elisa Aguilar, recalled that as a player she faced Segobasket in her junior stage, which had Dawn Stanley on its team, “a spectacular American player who is now a coach at the University of South Caroline and just won the NCAA.”

Also present were the president of the Castilla y León Basketball Federation, Óscar Castañeda, the first deputy mayor of the Segovia City Council, Rosalía Serrano, and the Councilor for Sports, Jesús Garrido.
