Sevilla FC, through their Foundation, have signed an agreement with Manos Unidas Sevilla which, amongst other things, will see the Nervionenses wear the logo of the company under their shirt numbers. The deal will be active in the Champions League from September.
María Albendea, president of Manos Unidas in Seville, said 'it is an honour that a team of the size of Sevilla FC would choose Manos Unidas to display on their shirts. Nationally, this will give larger visibility to Manos Unidas and, most importantly, it recognises our work of helping the most vulnerable.'
Albendea also spoke of the importance that sport has in helping development in the countries where Manos Unidas operate: 'Sport and the values it teaches are very important in the education of the boys and girls that we support through our educational programmes across three continents. We can't thank Sevilla FC enough for their generosity. I hope that the Manos Unidas brand accompanies the team until the very end of the competition.'
