  • For the third year running, the financial entity is supporting the FAR academy, where around 200 children, aged between 6 and 14, benefit from this sponsorship, which promotes this sport so deeply rooted in the Principality.
  • The FAR is grateful for Vall Banc’s support, which this year means it has been able to subsidise the children's fees, and has highlighted that the promotion in schools has increased the number of students by 40.

Escaldes-Engordany, 21 September 2021. On Tuesday, Vall Banc and the Andorran Rugby Federation (FAR in its Catalan initials) announced the renewal of sponsorship to put it on a stronger basis and to ensure the projects planned for the 2021-2022 season can take place.

For the third year running, the financial entity sponsors the Andorran Rugby Federation school. This is an agreement that benefits approximately 200 young people in our country, aged between 6 and 14, who are committed to training in this sport.

Vall Banc’s General Manager of Business, Sergi Martín, highlighted the rugby tradition in Andorran society and emphasised that the entity supports “talented youngsters, as well as entities that work to make Andorra a better country, and one of them is FAR, because through this school it promotes shared values among boys and girls aged between 6 and 14, such as: solidarity, discipline and teamwork.”

 Jean Marc Flaux, President of the FAR, stressed that “thanks to sponsorship, none of the children have had to pay the membership fee during the pandemic.” The FAR President stressed that thanks to the promotion conducted in all the schools in the country and the distribution of a rugby ball for each school, the academy has grown with around 40 new boys and girls joining this year.

The Director of the Rugby School, Philippe Berdaguer, expressed his pride in the students’ loyalty and the growth in the number of children. “We have grown considerably despite the health crisis; we have tripled the number of instructors, and all this is a result of the work being done in schools, thanks to the sponsors.” Berdaguer stressed the importance of the groundroots and highlighted that of the female team, more than 60% of the girls come from the Rugby School.
