Marta Pastor, from the Sports Department of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, emphasised the institution’s support for the tournament, highlighting that it has allowed more than 10,000 players from more than 20 countries to compete at international level. ‘The Department of Sports of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa supports the Tximist Cup because it is a platform for the promotion of women’s football.

In addition, this event promotes equal opportunities and the empowerment of girls and women through football,’ said Pastor.

Pastor also highlighted that the Tximist Cup is not just another tournament, but one that fosters togetherness and camaraderie among women from different backgrounds and cultures, creating an atmosphere of respect and inclusion. ‘I can’t forget that the tournament generates an important economic impact; but above all it has made the talent and skills of female footballers visible, challenging stereotypes and inspiring girls to pursue their dreams,’ she concluded.
