LaLiga Experience’s second calling point of the 2022/23 season has been a thrill a minute for both football-related activities and others besides. Getafe and the city of Madrid were the perfect hosts to our fantastic guests who enjoyed a memorable few days at the LaLiga club.
The first stop for the lucky guests from LaLiga’s international broadcasters was Getafe’s training ground, where they were given a privileged peek into what day-to-day life is like at the club, saw the different teams during training, and visited a broad range of the club’s facilities.
Emre Gürkaynak y Gökhan Abdik the well-known talents selected by S Sport, and the influencers Taras Povoroznyk y Filippo Ravizza from Nova Sports then headed to Getafe’s stadium, the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, where Stefan Mitrovic and Enes Unal were on hand to be interviewed by the journalists and influencers from Nova Sport (Czech Republic) and SSport (Turkey), spending some entertaining quality time with them. But that wasn’t all, Getafe still had many surprises in store for the guests. After being granted a privileged behind-the-scenes view of the Coliseum and the press room, the VIPs got to experience what it was like to be a coach on the touchline, tread the hallowed Getafe turf and pose for a “matchday team photo”.
As if that wasn’t enough, they then met Getafe CF’s current eLaLiga representative, Flippersito. He challenged Filippo Ravizza to a FIFA 23 match between Getafe and Real Madrid and, with the Coliseum as a backdrop to the thrilling encounter, you couldn’t imagine a more befitting setting.
The following days also provided the guests with lots of tales to tell back home. They were given a guided tour of the Civitas Metropolitano, treated themselves to the best of Madrid's gastronomy at the Mercado de San Miguel, enjoyed an impromptu kickabout near the 'Palacio Real', felt the pulse of LaLiga at TwentyNine's and saw the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. They then got ready for the climactic moment of the experience, the match on Saturday 8 October at 9pm!
We followed the experience every step of the way on LaLiga’s social media channels and international broadcasters through the hashtag #LaLigaExperience. Don’t miss a thing and let the creativity flow!
