Likewise, the entity works to obtain fair financing for the sector.

Isabel Pérez Espinosa, general secretary of the Union of Sports Federations of Catalonia (UFEC), explains that “the health crisis has given us the opportunity to cooperate together to defend the sector and overcome obstacles effectively. Now, this union will allow us to continue with our strategic line to achieve the recovery of grassroots sport, which was severely punished during the months of restrictions”.
