Real Valladolid CF and SD Eibar, both friend clubs of Football Impact, have decided to donate the Coronavirus detection tests. The players had no symptoms and have decided to donate this material to more affected groups.
Both our friends from Valladolid and Eibar, as well as those from CA Osasuna, rejected the test kits received by LaLiga and donated them to public health. They understand that there are people who will need them more.
According to David Espinar, director of the presidential cabinet and institutional spokesman for Valladolid: “We have not carried them out due to medical and social criteria”, to which he added that “there are groups that are much less benefited and with more needs.”
The president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales, expressed his pleasure with this measure in a tweet:
GRACIAS CLUBES por donar al @sanidadgob test del #COVID19 atendiendo a la petición de la @rfef
Es tiempo de SOLIDARIDAD y pensar en los más NECESITADOS ❤️
Uníos a nosotros y poned también vuestras residencias a disposición de NUESTRA SANIDAD

Both Eibar and Valladolid are regular clients of Football Impact. The Basque team usually travels with us in their summer stages in Europe.
For their part, the team from Valladolid have visited us repeatedly. The last time was recently, when they faced Marbella FC in the Copa del Rey. Sergio González’s men trained at the Dama de Noche facilities.
