Date: Thursday, May 28, 2015
Sporting their new UN Women-branded jerseys, the Valencia Club de Futbol team won a friendly match against Columbus Crew Soccer Club in Columbus, Ohio on 28 May, with a score of 1-0. The Spanish Liga team was in the United States this past week to unveil their partnership with UN Women, launched at UN Headquarters in New York City on 26 May. This is the first time a sports club becomes a global partner for the UN organization. The four-year agreement aims to promote gender equality and features the UN Women logo on players’ jerseys. It will also include special matches and soccer clinics.
