MAPFRE renews sponsorship agreement with RFET and Nadal

A new sponsorship agreement between MAPFRE, the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation (RFET) and Rafa Nadal, was presented this afternoon at the sports center of the Real Club de Tennis Barcelona-1899. The deal cements the relationship between the three parties for two more years, with an optional extension of a year.

The event has been attended by the Vice-President of MAPFRE, Antonio Nuñez, the President of the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation, Miguel Díaz, and the tennis player Rafa Nadal, who have congratulated each other on the extension of a relationship that has delivered great results over the past few years.

After projecting an astonishing video about the Spanish tennis player’s evolution, Antonio Nuñez has been the first to take the floor. The Vice-President of MAPFRE has been clear about MAPFRE’s commitment: “as you have been able to see in the video, here at MAPFRE will believe in tennis and support it unconditionally. We back our athletes, from our younger players to the international stars like Rafa. We share the same values, sacrifice, effort, strength, all of which are crucial in this sport and are embodied in Rafa.” At the end of his speech, he thanked RCTB-1899’s collaboration: “It is a great honor for us to be able to present this partnership at the Real Club de Tennis Barcelona-1899, coinciding with one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world.”

Miguel Díaz also praised this agreements: “MAPFRE’s support is crucial for Spanish tennis. They are doing a tremendous job with the younger generations and they have increased their funds for scholarships, from €90.000 to €45.000. Having an athlete like Rafa, the best tennis player in Spanish history, is extremely important because of what he represents. We have to thank Rafa for everything he has given us and we hope that he will be playing at his best level for at least 4 or 5 more years.”

At the end of the event, Rafa Nadal expressed his gratitude for MAPFRE for their support: “tennis needs backing and MAPFRE is and will always be my best travel companion. I hope other companies end up following MAPFRE’s example and help Spanish tennis become a global benchmark”, the Spaniard concluded.
