(24-3-2022) The Confederation of Unions of Autonomous Sports Federations of Spain (Cufade) launches an action plan with a new presidency, led by the head of the Union of Sports Federations of Catalonia (Ufec), Gerard Esteve.
Cufade begins a new stage. The Confederation of Spanish regional sports federative unions changes its president and sets new challenges. As approved at the General Assembly held in Madrid last Wednesday, its new head will be Gerard Esteva, president of the Ufec. In this new stage they hope to “value the importance of the union and unity of the most humble sport that every day make possible athletes, families, clubs, professionals and volunteers from federations throughout the territory.”
The new board of directors has a broad consensus and has four vice-presidents: Alfonso Escribano (Andalusian Confederation of Sports Federations); Vicente Martínez (Union of Madrid Sports Federations); Rafael Louzan (Union of Galician Sports Federations) and José María López (Union of Federations of the Region of Murcia). In addition, there will be a treasurer, Ángel Gurrutxaga (Union of Basque Sports Federations) and a secretary, Daniel Bravo (Association of Sports Federations of Castilla y León).
The strategic lines on which Cufade will focus go through achieving the recovery of grassroots sport after the pandemic, heavily punished by so many months of restrictions. Likewise, the entity will work to obtain fair financing for the sector. Cufade wants to celebrate a great grassroots sport congress throughout Spain and work on proposals for regulatory solutions to unify criteria and models of success.
Cufade was born in April 2015 after the union of seven unions of regional sports federations.
