Ronaldo, close to uniting the football and basketball clubs of Valladolid

first_imgThis all happens when it is settled whether the crimson club will be part of the ACB next season after it led virtually all the competition until the league break and continued as first. If finally, as it seems, the Federation advances in the proposal for Valladolid and Guipuzcoa to ascend, the people of Valladolid would have to have resolved, above all, the issue of conversion into a Sports Public Limited Company. The Valladolid station says that the conversations, of which the City Council is duly informed, are on the right track so that basketball is integrated as one more section of Real Valladolid, assuming the colors and the emblem of the Ronaldo club and being part of the Sociedad Anónima Deportiva, indispensable step for the basketball team to play next season in ACB, in a league with 20 teams. Those interested look at the precedent of Basketball Sevilla and Betis, although the Sevillian basketball club had already played in ACB and was a Public Limited Company.If the union is done, but the promotion could not be done finally, the new section of the blanquivioleta club would go on to prepare a project to face the assault on the ACB in the next season, always keeping the budget balance, but now you don’t think about it. With Jorge Garbajosa, president of the Federation, ready to do anything so that the two stipulated promotions are fulfilled, and the mayor of Valladolid, Óscar Puente, pushing the option of union and promotion, the illusion of white-and-white basketball grows at times. Mike Hansen, president of the Valladolid Basketball Club, was already anticipating it at AS on Wednesday, as a possibility, as a way to explore, and it seems that reality is closer than intuited. As Cadena Ser told in Valladolid this morning, The conversations between the top leader of the CBC and Matt Fenaert, CEO of Real Valladolid, have already taken place and there is a good harmony on both sides for the union, waiting for the last word, that would have the Brazilian Ronaldo Nazario, maximum shareholder of the football club, who already at the time leaned to lend his support to the basketball team.last_img read more
