About the competition
LALIGA GENUINE is already a well established project on the Spanish domestic scene that promotes equality, tolerance and respect through the power of our football, but also through programmes of socio-occupational inclusion and support for the training of its members. Each of the matches played throughout the season represents an opportunity for the participants to show their passion for football and prove to us that, with determination and support, we can all achieve our dreams.
