Real Betis Foundation helps more than 32,000 people
The Spanish Football Foundation made history last season with the celebration of the “Most Inclusive Match in the World”, breaking the record for fans with disabilities in an official match. In addition, Real Betis Academy grew by 140% worldwide.
The Real Betis Balompié Foundation presented its report on activities for the 2022-23 season at the Ciudad Deportiva Luis del Sol on Tuesday. A campaign in which the foundation continued to consolidate itself as a key player in its environment and helping Real Betis to also be known for its commitment to society.
The Foundation, which is responsible for channelling and implementing Real Betis’ Corporate Social Responsibility, helped 32,202 people last season thanks to the implementation of 60 of its own projects, involvement in 42 projects of other entities, and support for 217 organisations. The number of countries in which the Foundation has carried out its social action is noteworthy, 46, almost doubling the number of the last campaign. Chad, Ukraine, Afghanistan and Senegal are some of the territories in which action has been taken.
These numbers have been achieved through work in the five main areas of action of the Real Betis: Social Area, Cultural and Historical Heritage Area, Former Players Area, Sports Area and Forever Green.
There are many projects developed during the last campaign, but if there is one that stood out especially and that made the name of Real Betis Balompié resonate beyond its borders, it was “The most inclusive match in the world”, through which the record number of people with disabilities in the stands during an official match was achieved and, above all, to demand that all people can enjoy a sporting event equally.
