The collegiate club has reached an agreement with Impulsa Eventos e Instalaciones, the management company of the main sports venue in the capital, which has made it possible, also thanks to the good disposition of the Community of Madrid. At least 12 of the 17 regular league home games will be on WiZink. In addition, there will be at least two Endesa Women’s League matches in this pavilion.
Movistar Estudiantes and Impulsa Eventos e Instalaciones have reached an agreement so that the WiZink Center in Madrid continues to be the venue for the home matches of the Movistar Estudiantes men’s first team, also in the LEB Oro.
The collegiate club will be able to continue playing its matches in the capital’s main indoor sports venue, as it has been doing for the last decade thanks to the good disposition of both Impulsa Eventos e Instalaciones and the Community of Madrid, which owns the facility.
This new agreement includes that Movistar Estudiantes will play at least 12 of the 17 Regular League matches of the LEB Oro at the WiZink Center, although the club, installation, rivals and Federation are working so that they can be more. Matches that cannot be played on the WiZink must be played at another venue, which will be confirmed as far in advance as possible.
For the president of Movistar Estudiantes, Fernando Galindo “it was a fundamental objective to continue maintaining the facility where we have played in recent seasons, so that our fans, players and sponsors feel comfortable and at ease.”
Galindo wanted to publicly thank “the good disposition of Impulsa” to achieve something “fundamental for the club.” She explained that “most of the matches can be played at the WiZink Center, including two matches for the women’s team, which is also worthy of such a facility. It is great news for the entire Movistar Estudiantes family to be able to continue playing in the center of Madrid ”.
On the part of Impulsa, its CEO, Manuel Saucedo, also values ??the importance that “Movistar Estudiantes continue to play at the WiZink Center, which is their home. In difficult moments is when you have to support and we are sure that our venue will live its season of promotion, with the support of all its fans. The WiZink Center is delighted to receive sports ”.
LEB Oro debut on October 10. Before, LF Endesa. Thus, the debut of Movistar Estudiantes in LEB Oro is scheduled for Sunday, October 10 at 12:30 p.m. against ICG Força Lleida, a classic in the category.

With the public in the stands: season ticket campaign this week In principle, but always depending on the evolution of the health situation caused by COVID19 and the indications given by the authorities in this regard, the matches will be played with the public in the stands. Of course, with reduced capacity. As of today, we are working with the percentage of 40% of the capacity, which we hope that with the collaboration of all can be higher as the season progresses.
With all these data, Movistar Estudiantes will be able to start its season ticket campaign for the 2021-22 season this week.
