The president of the La Caja de Canarias Foundation, Manuel Sánchez Álvarez and the presidents of the Island Federations of Canary Wrestling, José Antonio Caballero for Gran Canaria, José Javier Hernández for Lanzarote and Jonathan Gil for Fuerteventura signed yesterday, one more year, the sponsorship of the Cup of the La Caja de Canarias Foundation for the next course.
Sánchez Álvarez recalled that, with this new signature, the Caja de Canarias has been collaborating with vernacular sport for 42 years, first from Social Work and now from the Foundation, thereby maintaining its objectives in defense of Canarian values, its idiosyncrasy and their traditions.
This support translates into a contribution of 30,000 euros, 6,000 more than two years ago, to be shared among the three federations, by virtue of the number of clubs and licenses. In this way, Gran Canaria will receive 12,000 euros, while the sports organizations of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will get 9,000 euros for each one. “It contributes to training not only sports, but also as people,” he said.
