The Official Cheese of Real Betis Balompié: Quesería Dehesa Dos Hermanas

La expansión de la marca Betis es una realidad, en particular a nivel internacional, pero al mismo tiempo nunca se olvidan sus raíces. | Real Betis’ expansion of its brand is a reality, but the club doesn’t forget its roots.

Club has two-year partnership with regional cheesemaker.


Anyone who has spent time in Spain knows that cheese is serious business. For that matter, all cuisine is taken seriously.

Real Betis Balompié found a way to tap into that rich culinary mindset.

While continuing to expand its brand on an international level, Real Betis is mindful of not forgetting its roots. Prior to the launch of the 2019 season, the Sevilla club added another Andalusian partner, Quesería Dehesa Dos Hermanas. Under the terms of the sponsorship, the quesería will be the official cheese provider for Real Betis for the next two years, to 2021. The artisan cheese maker will have its cheeses served in the premium sections of the Estadio Benito Villamarín and at selected Real Betis events.

Quesería Dehesa Dos Hermanas en su apuesta comercial por ser el Queso de Andalucía ha considerado al Real Betis como un equipo que ejemplifica la filosofía de la quesería, “gustar a todo el mundo y ser un modelo referente para Andalucía”.

Quesería Dehesa Dos Hermanas will also be a sponsor for the other Real Betis sports teams, including the women’s football team, as well as the Real Betis basketball and fusal teams. The company’s cheese wil be available for purchase in the stands as well as boxes at the Estadio Benito Villamarin for members (socios) and season ticket holders.

“Somos un club orgulloso de ser andaluz y para nosotros es una satisfacción unirnos a otra firma andaluza con la que nos sentimos identificados porque ha logrado el reconocimiento en casa y fuera de ella gracias a la calidad de sus productos”.

Ramón Alcarcón, Head of Commercial, Real Betis

The head of commercial at Real Betis, Ramón Alarcón, believes that the partnership is a very valuable one. “The expansion of the Betis brand is a reality. At an international level it continues to grow, but that doesn’t mean we are forgetting our roots.” he said. “We’re proud of being an Andalusian club and for us it’s rewarding to partner with another Andalusian firm with whom we identify because they have become reknowned at home and beyond for the quality of their products.”

“It is a strong commercial bet for our brand, we believe that football and Real Betis are two strong lines that will positively impact us in the market as an Andalusian brand and as the best sheep cheese manufactured in our own farm in Santa Barbara de Casa, Huelva,” said the CEO of Dehesa Dos Hermanas, Pepe Mateu.

Mateu stressed that the sponsorship exemplifies perfectly the philosophy of the cheesemaker, which has won various awards in Andalucía. “We want to be the cheese of all Andalucians, and thanks to Real Betis, with this commercial support, we will reach all the Betis fans and homes of Andalucía.” He added, “It’s a cheese to share with family, enjoy with friends and even better if it’s with a Real Betis victory!”

“Queremos ser el queso de los andaluces y andaluzas y, gracias al Real Betis Balompié, con esta fuerte apuesta comercial llegaremos a todos los aficionados béticos y a los hogares de Andalucía, porque es un queso para compartir en familia, disfrutar con amigos? y mejor todavía si es con una victoria del Real Betis”.

Pepe Mateu, Owner, Quesería Dehesa Dos Hermanas

Mateu expained that one of the company’s objectives is to position themselves as one of the best cheesemakers in Andalucía, in Spain and the World. They already have won awards as the producer of the best sheeps’ cheese in the region. (Dehesa Dos Hermanas owns a farm with more than 15,000 sheep) He added that the colours of the company, which packages its cheeses in a green box, just so happens to align well with the green and white of Betis.

Jeff Hunt Is The Ottawa Man Behind Atletico Madrid’s CPL Venture

MIAMI, Fla. (January 18, 2020) —

Unless you live in Ottawa, Ontario, you probably have no idea Jeff Hunt is. Just who is this “mystery man” involved with a bid to bring back professional soccer to Ottawa?

The mystery man is actually a local Ottawa businessman who, in 1998, at the age of 32, rescued junior hockey in Ottawa when he bought the 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League and saved the franchise. He also was behind the successful bid to bring back a Canadian Football League team to Ottawa — the Redblacks played their first game in 2014 — and over the past few months he was doing plenty of legwork to figure out if another soccer team could be viable.

He got results. As early as next week, it could be announced that an Ottawa franchise will be added to the Canadian Premier League in 2020, which begins in April.

“I can confirm that the CPL reached out to me some time ago to provide advice and guidance in bringing a CPL team to Ottawa,” Hunt said late Friday afternoon. “I can tell you we’re very close in putting together a launch of professional soccer through the CPL in Ottawa in 2020. That’s certainly the goal. My involvement — that’s to be determined — but for the right situation, I would hope to play a role not just as a partner, but as a frontman on the ground in Ottawa.”

Hunt is known as someone who has done much in the community.

Prior to Spanish media disclosing that the team involved is Atlético Madrid, all; Hunt said to local Ottawa news outlets is: “We are focusing on doing this with a major European group; when and if the day comes, it’s their announcement to make, not mine,” said Hunt. “It’s not my place to make any announcement.”

It wasn’t long ago — a bit more than two months — that Ottawa Fury FC suspended operations.

A Win For the Canadian Premier League

The addition of Ottawa is a win for the Canadian Premier League. Ottawa is the nation’s capital and has a good venue for the games. It also has had a successful soccer team and has an established fan base that was left without a team when the Fury suspended operations and sold its USL franchise rights to the Miami FC, whose general manager, Paul Dalglish, ironically, coached the Ottawa club from 2016-17.

While it seems like fielding a team for the 2020 season might be rushing things, it would help the league in its scheduling, going from a seven-team league to eight. The CPL’s teams are Pacific FC (Victoria), Cavalry FC (Calgary), FC Edmonton, Valour FC (Winnipeg), Forge FC (Hamilton) York 9 FC (Toronto) and HFX Wanderers (Halifax).

Ottawa is a major Canadian market, with a city population of 934,243 and a metropolitan population of 1,323,783 making it the fourth-largest city and the fifth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.

The CPL wanted Ottawa as one of the original teams, but the Fury were not interested last year. Fury FC ran out of patience with soccer’s governing bodies. Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (“OSEG”), which had owned Fury FC since its inaugural season in the North American Soccer League in 2014, pulled the plug on the team when it couldn’t get sanctioning to participate in the United Soccer League (USL) Championship this year. Unlike a year ago, when they were ready to take the battle to a Court of Arbitration for Sport, Fury FC walked away with the OSEG collective wanting out.

It should be noted that Hunt, an OSEG partner, distanced himself from the operations of Fury FC after a couple of seasons.

But this is different. While TD Place would provide the venue for the professional soccer team, OSEG, as a group, wouldn’t be involved in ownership. And in many ways a partnership with the CPL at this time makes sense.

The CPL season runs from late April to October. Each team plays 28 games, including 14 at home.

The expectation is that OSEG will be supportive of Hunt’s involvement and with professional soccer in a stadium that would otherwise be vacant on those game nights. The departure of Fury FC without a replacement team would have hurt the restaurants and bars that surround TD Place on game nights. So this will be a breath of fresh air.

The hope is that soccer fans young and old in Ottawa would gravitate toward a franchise in an all-Canadian league where there’s a heavy emphasis on giving exposure to Canadian talent. League rules say that 50 per cent, plus one, of every team’s roster must be made up of Canadian players (with a limit of seven foreign nationals). Teams must also start a minimum of six Canadians. At least three Canadians on each team must be under 21 and those players must combine to play a minimum of 1,000 minutes per season.

Atlético Ottawa

Atlético de Madrid reportedly investing in new Ottawa CanPL franchise.

A further sign that La Liga and its teams are making gains in North America.

MIAMI, Fla. (January 18, 2020) —

One of Spain’s biggest football clubs, Club Atlético de Madrid, is close to completing negotiations to create a brand new franchise in Ottawa that will compete in the Canadian Premier League, becoming the eighth club in a league that stretches from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.

Canadian Premier League

Spanish sports business media outlet Palco23 indicated that three separate sources indicate that the team will be announced in the coming weeks and will start play as soon as this April when the Canadian league begins its second season. The project is a continuation of Atlético’s foray into North America. Club officials did not return requests for comment made by Palco23.

Complete details are not yet available, and there has not been an official announcement yet, but Ottawa French daily publication Le Droit has added a few details. It appears that the former owners of the Ottawa Fury are not involved, but an investor in OSEG, Jeff Hunt, is acting as a facilitator in the negotiations. [ RELATED: Who is Jeff Hunt?| The Fury were founded in 2011, playing in second tier of North American soccer as part of the now defunct North American Soccer League (NASL), and then the United Soccer League (USL) Championship.

Le Droit, January 18, 2020

When asked for comment on Friday, Jeff Hunt had told Le Droit: “I can’t reveal the identity of my partners. It’s not my place to make this announcement, but I can assure you that soccer will be back in Ottawa in 2020 and the franchise will be led by a club with a rich history. When the Fury closed down, the CPL approached me to help bring a club to the nation’s capital. They felt it was important to have eight clubs by 2020. The schedule has not yet been released because they have always wanted Ottawa to be included in the 2020 season. This city already had a successful soccer club. All it needed was a partner with a strong backbone. We found it.”

July 26, 2015: Ottawa Fury versus Carolina Railhawks FC in NASL at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, ON.

Ottawa’s previous professional club, the Ottawa Fury, dissolved in 2019, after failing to receive sanctioning from Canada Soccer and Concacaf, the governing body for soccer in North and Central America and the Caribbean, to continue playing in the USL Championship, sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation as the U.S. second division. The club subsequently sold its USL franchise rights to the Miami FC.

Atlético, according to reports, are keen for their team to continue playing at the Fury’s original home, TD Place Stadium, which holds 24,000. It is not yet clear if the side will compete in the CPL under its original name or, more likely, switch to a new one more in line with the Atlético brand.

The La Liga club undertook a similar project in 2017 when they announced the purchase of a 61 per cent stake in Mexico’s San Luís team, who now compete in the country’s top-flight Liga MX competition as Club Atlético San Luís. This team is managed through Atlético de Madrid International Holding, a company created by the Spanish team. These are also not the first attempts by Atlético to expand their footprint outside of Spain. They previously owned a 34.6 % stake in Racing Club de Lens (France, Ligue 2), before selling that stake to Ambar Capital. They also had unsuccesfully attempted to become minority owners of a club in India.

The club, which is controlled by Gil Marín and his family, has always made it clear that their ambition is to extend the Atlético Madrid brand around the world through the acquisition of franchised clubs or academies. With regard to the latter, in 2018 the club opened an academy in Israel and also have opened three other academies in India with the aid of sponsors.

The investments in clubs in Canada and Mexico have come at a good point in time for the Rojiblancos, who are expected to have revenues of 515 million Euros in 2019-2020, a figure 27% higher than in 2018-2019. The breakdown of the revenue total is not known but is attributable to the sale of Antoine Griezmann and Rodri this past summer, as well as the sale of lands where the club’s former stadium, the Vicente Calderón, is located. The success of the commercial side of the club’s operations is also a factor, with revenue of 86.17 millon Euros through corporate sponsorships with Hyundai (sleeve sponsor), as well as strategic partnerships with Telefónica and a new four-year (2019-2023) partnership with Ria Money Transfer on the back of the shirts.

Espanyol Is Growing Brand Through International Academies

MIAMI, Fla. (January 6, 2019) —

In order to grow the club as a global brand, Real Club Deportivo Espanyol de Barcelona is developing a network of academies around the world.

The newest such fútbol school has opened in Brisbane, Australia.

This internationalisation model kicked off in the 2016/17 season with the launch of two academies and the growth has been gradual since then, reaching the curen position of 11 RCDE Academy sites.

Albert Saus is the manager of the club’s schools and academies department, He had this to say: “We work to create quality local projects around the world and the academy is at the heart of that. We have now reached Oceania, in the city of Brisbane, through an academy that will start activity at the beginning of February 2020.”

RCD Espanyol de Barcelona look at its academy not simply as a place to groom future players but literally as an extension of its brand. The club is creating a global model, opening centres around the world that will introduce the club not just to new players, but to create lifelong fans.

Global academies and football camps

The objective of these academies is to take the identity of RCD Espanyol de Barcelona academy to new territories, where boys and girls between the ages of four and 15 can improve their skills and the 119-year story of the club can be shared.

With the academy in Brisbane, the club is now present across all continents. In addition to Brisbane, RCD Espanyol de Barcelona is also based in Algiers and Tizi Ouzou (Algeria), in Saitama (Japan), in Jersey City, New Jersey (USA), in Baghdad (Iraq), in Helsinki (Finland), in Stockholm (Sweden) and in Shanghai, Shouguang and Hunan (China).

In total, RCD Espanyol has 1,085 boys and girls are training with the club.

In addition to the network of academies, Espanyol has created a football camps program.

Associated with the academies, the RCDE Football Camps consist of standalone training events designed to engage new playing talent around the world. When this project started three years ago, the club held six camps abroad. This year, 29 have already been held. Extending its global reach further, these camps have been carried out in Canada, The USA, Colombia, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Kazakhstan and Japan, among others.

RCD Espanyol de Barcelona now has the second most academies in La Liga that are supervised by club directors.

Growth in China

RCD Espanyol has invested greatly in China. The Catalan side has three of its international academies in the country. Alongside its Chinese ownership, this year’s signing of Chinese forward Wu Lei has helped to boost the club’s standing and presence here. It opened its third academy in China in the months following the signing as interest in the club grew rapidly. In addition, a new RCD Espanyol de Barcelona fan club was established in Shanghai.

It was a goal that gave Espanyol a 2-2 draw with Catalan rivals Barcelona, one which will have delighted the masses following back home in China, where Wu’s career is followed closely as the only player from his country to ply his trade in one of Europe’s top five leagues.


Saus explained: “Since [club owners] Rastar Group arrived at the club, our international presence has accelerated, although not only in China. The signing of Wu Lei helped us on the pitch and he also became an ambassador for the club in China. This goes in tandem with the three club academies in China.”

Consolidation in North America and other opportunities

Outside of Asia, the club maintains significant ambitions for growth and is working on consolidating its presence in North America. At the same time, it is also studying opportunities in India and possibly Central Africa.

Espanyol’s strategy definitely brings people from around the world closer to the club. “We want to build brand identity through our youth football because that helps to generate a sense of belonging,” Saus says. “We are seeing more and more members of our international programs joining our club in Spain or becoming fans, which increases our global network significantly.”

Carles Gil Named 2019 Major League Soccer Newcomer of the Year

MIAMI, Fla. (October 23, 2019) —

New England Revolution midfielder Carles Gil is the winner of the MLS Newcomer Of The Year award, beating a number of other players who had strong performances. He is now the 13th recipient of the MLS Newcomer of the Year Award since its inception in 2007.

The distinction is open to players who have had professional experience in a different competition who move to an MLS team during one of the two transfer windows. The 26-year-old native of Valencia, Comunidad Valenciana, Spain is the first Revolution player to receive the honour.

Carles had an impressive first year in Foxborough. He was the captain of the team and featured in the starting eleven in all 34 matches, as well as New England’s playoff loss to Atlanta United FC last Saturday. Gil was voted the JetBlue Revolution Team MVP by fans, and named the Players’ Player of the Year by his teammates. The club’s primary supporters group, the Midnight Riders, named him Man of the Year, and he also capped off the season by claiming the Revs’ Golden Boot trophy with team-highs of 10 goals and 14 assists.

The newcomer of the year award is given annually to the best player who has previous professional experience in a foreign league in that season.

The Newcomer of the Year Award is selected through votes cast by members of the media, MLS players, and club technical staffs.

CARLES GIL’S 2019 SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

  • One of two Revolution players to start 34 games in a single season, playing all but eight minutes, and captained the side in 23 straight games to close the season.
  • Voted the club’s JetBlue Revolution Team MVP by fans, Players’ Player of the Year by his teammates, and Midnight Riders’ Man of the Year by the club’s supporters.
  • Earned the team’s Golden Boot trophy after becoming the second player in club history, and one of four in MLS this season, to reach double digits in goals (10) and assists (14).
  • Ranked second in MLS and paced all MLS newcomers with 107 chances created, and finished fourth overall with 73 chances created from open play, according to Opta.
  • Led all MLS players in possessions won in the final third (50) and successful passes ending in the final third (730), and ranked fourth league-wide with 2,662 touches.

New England signed Gil at the close of the European winter transfer window on January 30, 2019 for a then-club-record transfer fee from Deportivo de La Coruña of LaLiga Smartbank (2nd Division), and he was added to New England’s roster as a Designated Player. Prior to MLS, Gil had more than 180 appearances across his eight-year senior career, which included playing for Aston Villa in England, as well as Valencia CF and Elche CF in Spain.

Gil finished the season ranked among the league’s top playmakers, placing first among all newcomers – and tied for fourth overall – with 22 combined goals and primary assists. His 14 helpers ranked fifth in MLS and paced all newcomers, while his 12 primary assists were tied for second in the league. Those totals made Gil one of only four MLS players to reach double digits in goals and assists this season, and the second Revolution player to accomplish the feat along with Lee Nguyen (2017).

The midfielder was the motor for the Revolution attack throughout 2019, recording the fourth most touches in MLS (2,662) and notching 107 chances created according to Opta, second-most in the league and first among all newcomers by a margin of 24. In addition, he ranked fourth in MLS with 73 chances created from open play, and paced the league with 730 successful passes into the final third. Gil’s impact was also evident on the defensive side of the ball, where he won 50 possessions in the final third, 12 more than the next-closest player. His 239 possessions won overall also ranked first among MLS newcomers. 

New York City FC’s Brazilian import Héber and another player from Spain, Toronto FC’s Alejandro Pozuelo, finished second and third, respectively. The final voting results:
