Athletic Walking Football participates in the Iberian Challenge Cup

The two Fundazioa teams will play this tournament on Saturday, which is being held in Malaga

The two Athletic Club Foundation Walking Football teams will participate this coming Saturday in the Iberian Challenge Cup tournament, organized by Málaga WFC and Torrox Tornadoes WFC. It is a special date because that day, February 26, Fundazioa officially turns 20 years old. The championship will be played at the San Roque stadium in Torrox (Málaga) and the Foundation will participate with its two Walking Football teams.

Walking Football is a form of football that emerged a decade ago in the United Kingdom to deal with the inactivity and isolation that affected people over 50 years of age. This sport began to become popular in Bizkaia in the 2018-19 season, through the social project of the Athletic Club Foundation that bears his name. Athletic Walking Football teams have already played a similar tournament in Portugal in October 2021.
