LaLiga Santander Experience
The LaLiga Experience guests will never forget the start of their visit to San Sebastian. Following the initial introductions, the second day was club day. Real Sociedad threw open the gates for TV2, WOWOW and Soccer King giving them the chance to get to know one of LaLiga’s top academies: Zubieta. Accompanied by Luki Iriarte, Grassroots Football Director, the guests were treated to an up-close view of how the future stars of LaLiga are taught their trade.
After the tour of Zubieta came one of the most hotly anticipated moments: meeting Take Kubo and Mikel Merino in person! The two Txuri Urdin stars escorted the LaLiga Experience guests, who had the opportunity to record interviews and challenges, as well as take home a signed shirt!
With the player interviews all wrapped up, the guests took a wander through the streets of San Sebastian to explore all of its secrets while savouring some delicious local pintxos, before heading to the Reale Arena for the first time in the company of some genuine Real Sociedad legends, including Bixio Gorriz, the player with the most appearances in the history of the club!
The following day, our VIP guests attended the first-team training session ahead of the Basque derby, and then met the Real women’s team players Synne Jensen and Sanni Fansi. In the afternoon there was time to familiarise themselves with one of the Basque country’s most popular and iconic sports: Basque pelota.
