Aintzane, president of the Tximist Foundation, at the UEFA Women’s Champions League event

The anticipation for the UEFA Women's Champions League final, to be held on May 25 at the San Mamés stadium, continues to grow. Among the key figures in this event is Aintzane Encinas, the distinguished president of the Tximist Foundation.

Encinas, as part of the event’s presentation, mentioned the Foundation’s work with the cause of women’s sports and its role in pushing women’s soccer to new levels of success and recognition. Furthermore, its participation in this event highlights the importance of collaboration between entities dedicated to women’s sport and sporting institutions such as UEFA.

The UEFA Women’s Champions League final will not only be an exciting sporting encounter, but also a celebration of soccer’s progress and a recognition of the work that remains to be done to ensure gender equality in sport.

Beyond football

The organizers of the event do not want the final to be simply a football match between the two best teams on the continent, but they want it to be a celebration of soccer and to continue taking steps towards equality and values such as “respect, inclusion and diversity”.

For this reason, past, present and future protagonists of women’s soccer, such as Irene Paredes, were invited to the presentation of this meeting. The world champion acknowledged that she too was “that little girl who dreamed of playing in Champions League finals and matches in places like San Mamés and that is why I am proud to belong to the generation that is changing the rules of the game, but I am also proud of those who fought before me to get here.

Nadine Kessler, UEFA’s head of women’s soccer, also took part in the event via video call. “Spain is currently one of the world epicenters of women’s soccer. That’s why I can’t think of a better way to celebrate women’s soccer by pitting Europe’s two best clubs against each other in Bilbao, in a stadium like La Catedral. The eyes of the sporting world will be on us on May 25. We hope to create more history in women’s soccer,” she said.

A historic event on our soil

The UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Bilbao will be a historic event in the Basque Country. The San Mamés stadium is expected to be packed to witness a match that will mark a before and after in the development of women’s sport.
