The sixth edition of the 2022/23 LaLiga Experience roadshow is now done and dusted and what an amazing time was had by all! The guests from LaLiga’s international broadcasters Setanta Sports Eurasia, Israel's One and Georgia's Silk Sport certainly won’t forget their stay in Seville in a hurry!
The LaLiga Experience VIPs took centre stage right from the moment they set foot in the Andalusian capital, where they revelled in a marvellous few days that were rounded off with the LaLiga Santander meeting between Real Betis and FC Barcelona.
Real Betis welcomed the LaLiga Experience party with open arms, kicking things off with a trip to the club’s Luis del Sol training ground. The guests and journalists from Setanta Sports Eurasia, Israel's One and Georgia's Silk Sport met their heroes Borja Iglesias, Sergio Canales and Aitor Ruibal, before watching Manuel Pellegrini put the first-team squad through their paces in training. The guests then spent time with members of the Real Betis basketball team, Yannick Nzosa and Zsombor Maronka, while also hanging out with Real Betis Women pair Laura Gutiérrez, better known as Laurina, and Angela Sosa. As if that weren’t enough, the LaLiga fanatics were then treated to a guided tour of the Benito Villamarin ahead of the hustle and bustle of the big matchday. They got to know the iconic stadium inside out and stepped into the players’ shoes for a brief moment, as they posed for photos in the dugout, on the touchline and in the media room.
The crowning moment of this unforgettable four-day trip came on the final day, with the eagerly anticipated match-up between Barça and the Verdiblancos. In the build-up to kick-off, the guests were welcomed by former Betis player and club legend Rafael Gordillo, who presented them with a gift as a thank you for their visit. All members of the group witnessed both teams arrive at the stadium, before heading pitchside to see the Betis players warm-up, get a feel for the atmosphere in the stands and see club mascot Palmerin embrace supporters.
The LaLiga followers then sat back in some of the best seats in the house to take in all the on-field action as they cherished the lifetime memories they’d made in Seville.
The ball is rolling in #LaLigaExperience!
