The Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) and the Spanish Federation of Sports for People with Physical Disabilities (FEDDF) have signed an agreement that aims to promote wheelchair basketball and the organisation of events in which children with and without disabilities can participate.
José Alberto Álvarez, President of the FEDDF, and Jorge Garbajosa, President of the FEB, have undertaken to support the holding of competitions and other events.
Álvarez commented: "This agreement seeks to promote wheelchair basketball linked to traditional basketball through the search for synergies in the organisation of our events and competitions.
"Within the framework of the Inclusive Sports Commission of the FEB, we will also continue working on the implementation of initiatives such as the one we did last year in the School Championship, where children with and without disabilities can compete in the same event."
Garbajosa added: "This signature reflects, on the one hand, the sensitivity of the Federation for always trying to collaborate with our sector and, on the other, what we have been doing since years ago, to be at your disposal in everything you may need.
"We want to be close, always be collaborative and help them from our humble position."
