Transition to normality

The Endesa League tries to return to normality after a few convulsive months. On March 8, basketball - and shortly after the world - stopped due to the coronavirus and, although the ACB was able to close the course with a note in the Valencia bubble, many things are missed. The main thing, the fans, who will take time to fill the stands of the pavilions. And we will also have to be attentive to the day to day of the teams due to the evolution of the pandemic. Because, before the official start of the course, this preseason several friendlies had to be suspended due to the positive of a player.

In such an unusual year, the competition will also be rare because it will have 19 teams. The clubs agreed that there would be no relegation (eleven days to go before the regular phase was closed and the bottom part could have changed a lot in that time) and the FEB, without a promotion phase or being able to finish the season, decided that the first two classifieds (City of Valladolid and Delteco Gipuzkoa) rose directly, something that the ACB was opposed to. The Pucelano team, now allied with the soccer club, did not get the accounts and resigned. On the other hand, Gipuzkoa did want - and could - rub shoulders with the greats and went to court, which proved it right. The ACB has opposed the order for precautionary measures but, for now, the League has 19 teams and the Donostiarras will make their debut against Real Madrid ... in Bilbao. In the event that things remain as they are, this course there will be two relegations, but only one promotion to return to the 18 teams in 2021-22.

Baskonia has a new sponsor (TD Systems) after the title won in Valencia. Just ten years are those that have separated the 2 + 1 of San Emeterio (2010) from the basket of Vildoza (2020). The champion, who hopes to retain the Baskonia character that Ivanovic regained at Christmas, has lost Shengelia on the way, but has strengthened well: Rokas Giedraitis, Alec Peters ... A team without such a clear reference, but who has savored the success and is reluctant to give it up. "Winning creates addiction", acknowledges MVP Vildoza.

Barça and Real Madrid, on the other hand, maintain the base of last year. The defeat in the final in Valencia ended Barça's patience with Pesic. And so, Sarunas Jasikevicius, the desired one since the summer of 2016, returns to a Barça that has thrown the house out the window to forget its problems with the point guards. He has only made one signing so far (a pivot could come), but what signing: Nick Calathes.

Madrid, in the middle of the Campazzo soap opera, looks to the future with the additions of Alberto Abalde (24 years old) and Carlos Alocén (19). Felipe Reyes will continue to be captain for one more season and the white team will be attentive to the base market if finally, and as everything seems to indicate, Campazzo leaves halfway through the course for the NBA (in the US there is talk that the market can open early December) .

Valencia Basket has been left with the top scorer of last season (Klemen Prepelic) and two Fenerbahçe players disembark in the taronja project: Nikola Kalinic and Derrick Williams. An interesting alternative to the top of the table. Unicaja signed during the season (Darío Brizuela, Gal Mekel and Axel Bouteille) and it has hardly been reinforced this summer. Tim Abromaitis arrives, who has already astonished the Endesa League with Iberostar Tenerife.

Precisely, the Tenerife team is experiencing a calmer year than the previous one, in which there were many changes (Tomazs Gielo was the veteran and had only played one game with the team). Vidorreta will continue to rely on the Huertas-Shermadini connection and three good reinforcements arrive for the inside game (Tyler Cavanaugh, Emir Sulejmanovic and Aaron Doornekamp). The pity is that Dejan Todorovic broke in the preseason (cruciate ligament tear) and it will take time to see him again.

Baby Casademont Zaragoza was one of the sensations of last year and without Porfi Fisac, who has set course for Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the Maño team wants to continue installed among the greats and show off their talent. Alocen (Madrid) and Jaime Pradilla (Valencia Basket) have left, but Jonathan Barreiro will continue to lead. Dylan Ennis renewed just before the final phase in Valencia and although there were neither DJ Seeley nor Jason Thompson, who had left for the United States due to the pandemic and broke their contracts, the fans will continue to enjoy them.

Herbalife Gran Canaria seeks tranquility after two convulsive seasons. In 2018 he achieved a dream when he debuted in the Euroleague, but the European journey was expensive: he neglected the ACB and the following year he was left without a European place. Disputing a single competition last year did not suit him either: without a Cup and outside the top eight. He traveled to the finals in Valencia and did a good job, but there, in the middle of the tournament, Katsikaris was shown the starting gate. With Fisac at the helm, Granca has revolutionized its outdoor game: Amadeo Della Valle, Andrew Albiy, Frankie Ferrari ... 444 444

At MoraBanc Andorra, few changes. The signing of the summer has been the arrival of the 'amazing' Oriol Paulí and the team lands in the competition after unseating Barça in the Catalan League. It will also be necessary to see how the new pieces fit in the San Pablo Burgos, brand-new semifinalist of the ACB. A team in which Benite, McFadden continue ... but which has lost many of the heroes of Valencia. Of course, talent comes from other corners of the ACB. Veteran Omar Cook will play in his sixth team in the ACB, Xavi Rabaseda returns to the Peninsula and Alex Renfroe, to the Endesa League, after leaving Manresa last year.

Bilbao Basket, disarmed with respect to the one that started last year, is betting on strangers in our League: Moses Kingsley, Jaroslaw Zyskowski, Aaron Jones ... And Joventut, in search of a sponsor, has lost Prepelic, but received with the open arms to two former Barça players: Pau Ribas and Ante Tomic.

A Manresa returns the prodigal son (Rafa Martínez) and three reinforcements from the German League: Makai Mason, Scott Eatherton and Seth Hinrichs. In Monbus Obradoiro, of course, Moncho Fernández continues on the bench, the oldest on the ACB benches (11 seasons), and who will have to lead a team with many new hires, including that of Jake Cohen (Maccabi Tel Aviv) and that of another veteran, Albert Oliver.

Coosur Betis and UCAM Murcia have caught air after the months of hiatus. Both were out of relegation, but with an eye on the bottom two spots. Time to think things over. Seville has been the destination chosen by Nick Kay, who wants a leading role in the ACB. In addition, James Feldeine returns to the League, a real killer in Fuenlabrada years ago. UCAM recovers two of the important pieces from its best years: Nemanja Radovic and Augusto Lima. In addition, you will have to be aware of a Antetokounmpo. The youngest of the saga, Alex, lands in Spain. He will play in the subsidiary, but we could see him make his debut this season.

And those who also want to forget last year are Urbas Fuenlabrada and Movistar Estudiantes, who occupied the relegation positions when the League stopped due to the pandemic. The collegiate team, full of homegrown players (Arroyo, Sola, Vicedo, Arteaga ...), trusts the resurgence of Edwin Jackson and the return of Alec Brown. To the south of Madrid, they also have a lot of confidence in young people: let's see if Marc García is respected by injuries, how the physicist Osas Ehigiator sits in the elite, what can the youth squad Ziga Samar contribute ... 444 444

The ACB wants to turn the page with a season, hopefully, of transition to normality and with the fewest possible shocks. Until the stands fill up again and the players feel the warmth of their audience, we will have to watch it on TV, but the emotion is not lost. 19 teams will fight to win a title, get into Europe, avoid relegation ... Basketball returns, more or less, to normality.

Barça: a project to win back ACB

The new Barça project, headed by Sarunas Jasikevicius, will begin its path in the Endesa League against San Pablo Burgos on Sunday (8:00 p.m.), after a preseason that has raised some doubts after the losses in the Catalan League finals against MoraBanc Andorra (84-85) and in the Endesa Super Cup against Real Madrid (67-72). Many carats (and millions) in a squad called to dominate European basketball.

Although Barça's drought in the League has lasted six seasons, the Barça club did not go crazy this summer and bet on maintaining, more or less, the block of last year. Kevin Pangos, Pau Ribas and the 'captain' Ante Tomic came out. The last two heading to Badalona. His only incorporation on the track has been that of a proven player who reinforces one of the positions that gave him the most headaches last year. The base, with the signing of Nick Calathes. In addition, the Argentine youth squad Leandro Bolmaro has risen to the first team.

Barça has not been fully in this preseason, although it cannot be an excuse. Jasikevicius has not been able to count on either Cory Higgins, who underwent surgery in early July for plantar fasciitis on his right foot and who will not return until early October, or Kyle Kuric, who suffered a head injury in August and underwent surgery to review the cranial plate that was placed in 2015 after removing a tumor.

The Lithuanian coach has remained faithful to his approaches and in the preseason he has given minutes to his entire squad with constant rotations. He has sought more to bring the team together than the results, but that at Barça is always a short-term journey, you have to fight for everything. So far, Calathes (22 points and 12 assists in the two finals) is responding, but on the track the pattern is set, of course, by Niko Mirotic, Brandon Davies and, although intermittently, Álex Abrines on the outer perimeter. Good news for the Barça team is the recovery of Abrines, from last year's signings, which was more gray.

For Jasikevicius defensive solidity, discipline in team play and not making absurd mistakes are the basis of his philosophy. "We have to understand that no star, no matter how good, and we have many, is going to win a game alone," he says. In this scarce month, the Lithuanian coach has already given some clues as to which Barça we are going to see this season. The combination of two bases on the court, alternating Calathes, Heurtel, Bolmaro and the wild card Hanga, is an interesting initial step, but on the rebound neither Claver, nor Oriola, nor Smits are born centers and Pustovyi has not counted much either. This has forced Mirotic to an added effort on the rebound and Davies to tremendous wear. An incorporation into the inner game is not ruled out: it is clearly necessary. During the summer a few names rang: Jock Landale, Jan Vesely ... but now Davies is too lonely at 'five'.

Jasikevicius, who does not hide that the losses in the Catalan League and the Super Cup have been two hard sticks, prefers to stay with the positive of this preseason. "The team has improved a lot in the last week, although they still have to do it physically and know the systems better." Jasikevicius takes on duties in his first season with the team and in a course in which the Barça team must respond with titles to the great financial effort that the club has made in recent summers. Two King's Cups and one Super Cup in six years are little reward for a team that should dominate European basketball.

Calathes and Abalde, stars of a market with a hundred signings

Signings are the sauce of every summer, the touch of novelty that adds an extra incentive at the beginning of the new year. And this season, despite the pandemic, the number of incorporations has remained high and reaches one hundred, although still around 15% below last season and with one more club (this year there are 19 and not 18) . The figure will rise with last-minute reinforcements.

The average number of signings is more than five per team, although the most powerful have been those that have carried out the least operations. Only six clubs are below that average of five incorporations, and in that bag are the two giants of our basketball. Between Barça and Madrid there are barely three new faces, one for Barça (Nick Calathes) and two for whites (Carlos Alocén and Alberto Abalde) .

The Greek-American Calathes is the star signing of the summer, one of the best point guards in Europe who has changed Athens, Panathinaikos, for Barcelona. The other, perhaps with more experience in the League by age, is Abalde (only 24 years old), for whom Real paid the exit clause of 1.5 million euros to Valencia. Then a battery of very interesting players appears, such as Martin Hermannsson, Klemen Prepelic, Nikola Kalinic, Derrick Williams (Valencia), Rokas Giedraitis, Alec Peters (Baskonia), Pau Ribas, Ante Tomic (Joventut)…

Among those who have moved little but well is Casademont Zaragoza, third when the League stopped back in March. He has brought Rasheed Sulaimon, who may surprise, as they firmly believe in the club, Sagabe Konate and has recovered the youth squad Jaime Fernández, from Barça. The Unicaja, like the culés, only presents a new face: Tim Abromaitis. In Malaga they came with their homework done, with the incorporations of Mekel, Brizuela and Bouteille before the state of alarm.

The other two teams below the average are Joventut and Herbalife Gran Canaria, with four reinforcements per beard. Very good players in both cases, with a high status. Ferrán Bassas, Pau Ribas, Ante Tomic and Vladimir Brodziansky have landed on the green-black squad. And in the yellow, Andrew Albicy, Frankie Ferrari, Amedeo de la Valle, and Jacob Wiley. In the middle is Valencia Basket, with five, one of the contenders that has been best strengthened, although it has also lost pieces of great importance such as Loyd, Doornekamp and, above all, Abalde. He will try to grow with Martín Hermannsson, Klemen Prepelic, Nikola Kalinic, Derrick Williams and Jaime Pradilla.

Those who have changed the most are Monbus Obradoiro, Real Betis, UCAM Murcia and the recently promoted Gipuzkoa, with eight each. El Obradoiro, for example, has been very active for another year after losing several of its references. His star signing is former Maccabi Jake Cohen, but also watch out for Kassius Robertson (Fortitudo) and Kartal Ozmizrak (Darussafaka), who will start injured and hence the temporary contract for Albert Oliver, 42, the veteran of the League for above Felipe Reyes (40). In Murcia they have recovered Nemanja Radovic and Augusto Lima, and the benchmark in Coosur Betis will be James Feldeine, back to the ACB, and watch out for Australian Nick Kay, brilliant against Spain in the semifinal of the last World Cup. Gipuzkoa bets on Pere Tomàs, Dino Radoncic, William Magarity, Viny Okouo… They announced their squad, the twelve players, at one stroke on August 12th.

And the champion? The TD Systems Baskonia is one of those that is easy to move in the market, seven high, although three are homegrown, and one of them, Carrington, has already been low due to its performance. So there will be more news. For now, Rokas Giedraitis (Alba) and Alec Peters (Efes) are not disappointing. Also came Tonye Jekiri (Villeurbanne) .

Among the other two teams from Madrid, which last season fought to avoid relegation, Movistar Estudiantes has recovered Aleksandar Cvetkovic and Alec Brown, and has taken ownership of Aleksa Avramovic. And the Urbas Fuenlabrada, which has left a good taste in the mouth in the preparation, has closed very interesting players such as Melo Trimble, the former Madrid player Ziga Samar (operation of a year ago but which is incorporated now), Obi Emegano, Sander Vene, the burly Robert Upshaw…

The Hereda San Pablo Burgos has restructured its squad with the aim of being more competitive, like almost everyone at the beginning: Omar Cook, Alex Renfroe, Xavi Rabaseda, Ken Horton, Jordan Sakho and Dejan Kravic. Club with aspirations, such as MoraBanc Andorra, which has won the Catalan League against Barça with Sergi García, Haukur Palsson and Malik Dime as great hires. Also Oriol Paulí. Iberostar Tenerife, in addition to Doornekamp, has acquired Bruno Fitipaldo and Tyler Cavanaugh, among others. Very profound changes in the Manresa, with Jonathan Tabu and Makai Mason (Alba) in outside positions, and in the Retabet Bilbao with Ludde Hakanson at the helm.

It will cost as always to locate all the new faces, sometimes that leads to a loss of identity among fans at a general level, but the ACB is the best league in Europe and the commitment to quality remains, even with the current budget uncertainty due to the lack of public in the pavilions. Now it's time to enjoy the talent.

4 young people to reign in the League

The Endesa League will have one more season with a lot of young talent. Specifically, the 19 ACB teams bring together 44 players aged 23 or under, 18 of them Spanish, who have an average age of 21.1 years and represent 17.8% of the total number of players in the championship (calculated with 13 members per staff on average), with a notable impact on three teams: Joventut de Badalona, Casademont Zaragoza and Movistar Estudiantes.

La Penya, one of the great and historic quarries of Spanish basketball, is the leader with six youngsters. And, what is more important, they are not just numbers to show the muscle of the quarry, but they have the full confidence of Carles Duran, a coach of the house, who arrived in the lowest hours of the club to save him and now He pilots a litter led by the 23-year-old veteran Xabi López-Arostegui and who looks great with the great point guard Nenad Dimitrijevic (22). A similar case happens in Zaragoza which, despite losing Carlos Alocén (the jewel in the crown) and Jaime Pradilla (Valencia), has four promises under the baton of the trainer Diego Ocampo and one reality: Jonathan Barreiro. The forward, at only 23 years old, is one of the best forwards in the ACB and one of the great references of Spanish basketball.

El Estu, for its part, still has a long way to go to regain the feeling of a great quarry that it had in the past. The number of young people running through the Magariños courtyards is incredible (2,500 boys and girls in the male, female and inclusive quarries), but the diamonds have been few and have not lasted. Juancho Hernangómez, Jaime Fernández and Darío Brizuela came out (worse than better) and, now, the bet is on the Generation of 2000, which this season will be represented by four players plus Levy Gilad. In his favor, Javi Zamora, the technician who has accompanied Adams Sola, Dovydas Giedraitis, Nacho Arroyo and Diego Alderete from the beginning and who is now in charge of leading the mysterious new school project.

Not only the humble have the power of youth to face this new course. The four Euroleague teams bring together nine: three Real Madrid, two TD Systems Baskonia and Valencia Basket, and one Barça. The whites are the ones who have best taken care of their quarry in recent years thanks to their triumphant inertia and have added 14 debuts with the first team since Pablo Laso came to the bench in 2011. The last, the Italian Matteo Spagnolo and two will have a record with the older: Usman Garuba and Boris Tisma. Both will accompany one of the great pearls of national basketball, Carlos Alocen, who after his one-season loan at Zaragoza, has landed in the capital to become the future starting point guard of Madrid.

On the other hand, there is Barça. The Catalans have not squeezed their quarry in recent years, in an external search for players who could return them to the top of Europe. However, the figure of Leandro Bolmaro has emerged. The Argentine guard looks great and Jasikevicius has already shown in the Super Cup that he will have no problems with him. His response, energetic and courageous, in the two Tenerife matches attest to a bright future ahead. Baskonia, not very given to pulling their youngsters, brings Tadas Sedekerskis and Sander Raieste; and Valencia, the fabulous pitcher Vanja Marinkovic and the reliable project Jaime Pradilla.

Santi Yusta is the great young man out of the aforementioned teams: Madrid youth squad, at 23 years old, played a good role at Ibersotar Tenerife the previous season before falling injured. Olek Balcerowski is the hope on the other island, in Gran Canaria, while Osas Ehigiator and Ziga Samar are the future at Urban Fuenlabrada. Arnoldas Kulboka is in Bilbao Basket. Many pearls to consider for this new season in the Endesa League where the little ones want to take control and occupy the throne of their elders.

A protocol tested in the Super Cup

Tenerife hosted the second ACB tournament in mid-September after the stoppage due to the coronavirus. The first was the successful final phase of the Endesa League in Valencia, which hosted 12 teams in a health bubble for 14 days. The experience was not repeated in this Super Cup, but it also had a safe environment. The idea was that the first title of the course would be as close as possible to the reality that clubs will have to face during the League: normal daily life, travel and strict sanitary protocols to be able to play.

The preseason for the ACB teams began in August with several scares. After Urbas Fuenlabrada announced five positives, the clubs decided to meet urgently to talk about the protocols that would be in the competition and in the friendlies prior to the start of it and resolve some doubts. Several teams have had positives in their squad and technical staff, but the infections have not increased: the positive has been isolated at home and the rest of the team has been given a new test to rule out that there were more infections. During the competition, the ACB will postpone a match if a team has three positives, regardless of whether they are players or members of the coaching staff.

The measures agreed for the Super Cup (and that will continue in the league competition) began with the PCR tests prior to the tournament on the four participating teams. The Santiago Martín, which finally did not have an audience, was divided into two zones: green and blue. The first affected sports venues such as changing rooms, benches, court ... There, the strict health protocol of Valencia has also been followed with continuous disinfection of material and spaces in the breaks, at the end of each game, after each training session ... The mask was mandatory all the time, except for players and coaches and main assistants on the court and registered in the minutes of the match. The arbitrators also had this dispensation.

The benches were placed in an L shape and the stands were retracted one meter to increase the available space. The scorer's table, meanwhile, had a two-meter high methacrylate screen. The blue zone was set up for civilians (press, managers ...). The mask should always be worn and there will be no contact between the two worlds. Health priority over sports.

For now, basketball will start without an audience. "I wish it depended on us," lamented Antonio Martín, president of the ACB, at Movistar Deportes during the Super Cup. "The powers are not delegated to the communities, but the CSD and the Government have them. As long as it has approved them, it will be undertaken. It will not be easy but we are going to try. In non-professional sports measures are being taken so that there is a certain number of audience. We have to be very cautious and do it very gradually. At first there will be no audience, then a little, see how it works, and go testing. It does not make sense from zero to nothing in one day to other ".

Who is who in the sponsors of the Endesa League

Of the 19 clubs in the Endesa League, only four do not have a sponsor in their name: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Baskonia and Joventut, although the latter wants to find someone to give it to them. The rest do have it and the spectrum of possibilities is very wide: real estate, an insurance company, a university, a bank, a hotel chain ... We review who is who among the main sponsors of the ACB teams.

Acunsa (Gipuzkoa)

A few days ago the GBC announced that it was changing sponsor. Delteco, a San Sebastian company that is dedicated to the distribution of machinery and that has been giving the team its name since 2017, stopped doing so and Acunsa, a health insurance agency linked to the University of Navarra Clinic and that also sponsors Osasuna, arrived. The agreement is for three years.

Baxi (Manresa)

British company that is also one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of boilers and air conditioning systems in the world. With a turnover of more than 1,200 million euros and more than 6,000 employees around the world, he made a commitment to Basketball Manresa in 2018. This will be the third season in which he will give the team its name. It also sponsors the women's basketball Uni Ferrol, now in the Women's League 2.

Casademont (Zaragoza)

The Catalan delicatessen company, which sponsored Girona years ago, was acquired in 2017 by the Aragonese Costa Group, which has 4,000 employees and was founded in Fraga (Huesca) in 1966. The agreement was presented in June of 2019 and Zaragoza will continue to carry the Casademont name until June 2023. In addition, the Stadium Casablanca of the Endesa Women's League (former Mann Filter) was linked this summer to Casademont Zaragoza and will also be called that.

Coosur (Real Betis)

Based in Dos Hermanas (Seville), Coosur is a Spanish company dedicated to the commercialization of olive oil and which belongs to the Acesur group. Its products are distributed throughout Europe, America and the Middle East (in total, in more than 110 countries) and this will be its second season naming the team. It is also linked to the football club

Herbalife (Gran Canaria)

Global nutrition company present in more than 90 countries and with more than 9,500 employees worldwide, famous for its protein shakes. The company has been linked to Gran Canaria since 2012 and, in 2018, it extended its sponsorship until 2021. In Spain, it is also present in the official 3x3 circuit which it also gives its name.

Iberostar (Tenerife)

The Balearic multinational has been dedicated to the tourism sector for more than 70 years. With more than 120 hotels in 19 countries (38 of them in Spain) and 34,000 employees, he began sponsoring CB Canarias in November 2013. He committed himself for three seasons, but this will be his eighth year with the team. Last year it extended the agreement until 2023.

Monbus (Obradoiro)

With more than 850 buses, and a presence in eight Spanish Autonomous Communities, the transport company became linked to Obradoiro when it achieved its ACB place in the offices in 2009. Therefore, it is one of the most veteran current sponsors of the ACB clubs. The president of the team, Raúl López, is also the head of Monbus.

MoraBanc (Andorra)

On their website they are defined as a family bank (the origins go back to 1938 when Bonaventura Mora opened a currency exchange office in the Principality) and a financial group with an international vocation (they have two wealth managers that operate in Zurich and Miami). He has been linked to Andorra since 2014 (he signed for ten seasons) and last year he also reached an agreement with the football team.

Movistar (Students)

One of the sponsors of the Endesa League is also one of its teams. In May of this year, the Estu and Movistar announced that they would remain linked until 2025. The sponsorship of the telecommunications operator, in force for six seasons, includes professional teams (male and female) and also the quarry and teams with male and female players with disabilities.

Retabet (Bilbao)

Biscayan company specialized in the sports betting sector, which has been linked to Bilbao Basket since it began its activity in 2008, and operates both in Spain and Peru. In 2016 he signed an agreement for seven seasons with the Bilbao club, but the relegation of the team in 2018 rendered it invalid. Retabet wanted to trust, more if possible, in Bilbao Basket and decided to sign a new contract for ten years.

San Pablo Hereda (Burgos)

Two companies give their name to the Castilian-Leon team. The real estate San Pablo has three offices in Burgos and sponsors both the basketball and handball teams of the city of Burgos. As also happens in the case of Obradoiro and Monbús, its owner is Félix Sancho, president of the club. They have been linked to Burgos since it appeared (as a substitute for Tizona) in 2015. This year the Hereda Group, a Madrid-based law firm specialized in inheritance genealogy, has joined the Burgos project. Burgos and Hereda have signed for two seasons.

TD Systems (Baskonia)

The current champion of the Endesa League has a new sponsor this season. A company, which has been committed until 2024 (replaces Kirolbet, whose future was in the air by the future Law on gambling), and which is dedicated to the manufacture, sale and assembly of televisions and other electronic components. Founded in 1985, it was one of the first Spanish computer companies created in the mid-1980s. Its headquarters are in Madrid.

UCAM (Murcia)

The Catholic University of Murcia has been sponsoring the basketball team since 2011 (the rojillo team ascended that summer to the Endesa League), but it is not the only sponsor. The Sports University, as it calls itself, also sponsors the soccer team and several athletes, including Lidia Valentín, Mireia Belmonte, Joel González, Saúl Craviotto, Teresa Perales ...


A club and a bank whose history is linked from the beginning. CB Málaga was founded in 1992 by the merger of Caja de Ronda (club created in 1977 by Caja de Ahorros de Ronda) and Mayoral Maristas and has always carried the nickname of Unicaja, which was created in 1991 by the merger of several savings banks (including the one in Ronda) and which in 2014 became a banking foundation.

Urbas (Fuenlabrada)

The other sponsor, apart from Grupo Hereda, TD Systems and Acunsa, which joins the Endesa League family. The real estate developer, born in 1944, was linked to the world of transport until 1976 (it operated several bus and tram lines between Barcelona and other towns). The agreement is for three seasons and Fuenlabrada will wear green, the color of the company logo.
