Madrid, 14th March, 2018.

VIPS, one of the top restaurant brands in Spain, has renewed its commitment with the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) as the official supplier of the Spanish national women’s and men’s basketball teams.

VIPS is thus reaffirming its support for the institution and Universo Mujer (Women’s Universe), a comprehensive program led by the Spanish Basketball Federation in collaboration with the Spanish Higher Council for Sports to promote women’s sports and the values it is capable of transmitting as a tool for social improvement and transformation.

Under the agreement, VIPS will continue to actively participate in men's and women's teams' preparation tours, promoting events in different Spanish cities. 

Moreover, it will continue to engage in various initiatives to foster healthy habits, the development of equal relations between men and women and employability through workshops, talks and games held in collaboration with Universo Mujer and various social organizations. Nearly 300 people in vulnerable situations have participated in these initiatives over the last two years of collaboration, which will be expanded in this second phase.

The agreement was renewed today at a lunch held in the VIPS restaurant at Paseo de la Castellana 280 in Madrid attended by the Jorge Garbajosa, President of the FEB, and María Jesús García, General Manager of VIPS.

“We’ve renewed our agreement to support sports and the national teams with which we share what’s most important: our values: effort, teamwork, a commitment to success and excitement for the future,” said María Jesús García, General Manager of Vips.  “Our national teams inspire us to face the challenges that lie ahead in this growth phase we’re in the middle of with a winning spirit and strength and, just as the success of our national teams lies in getting the best of their players to shine, at VIPS we’re committed to developing the talent of the people who are on our team.”

Jorge Garbajosa, President of the FEB, said, “This cooperation between VIPS and the FEB has not only been easy, but also quite natural. For us, it’s a source of great pride to have the support of a brand like VIPS which grows based on very clear social values: And that’s what we’d also like to demonstrate with the FEB, to be close to people and try to reach as many of them as possible through the stability of our values and our teams.”
