The party of the champions

Valencia Basket has celebrated, together with its fans, the title achieved last night in Salamanca. The club’s first women’s league is already in the club’s showcases of honor. After 8:00 p.m. the party began at La Fonteta in front of more than 2,000 fans in the stands.

The first men’s team led by Álex Mumbrú welcomed the champions with a corridor before stepping onto the track.

The players, with a personalized song for each one, entered in the following order: Alba Torrens, Buenavida, Salvadores, Leticia Romero, Lamana, Morro, Cox, Gülich, Cierra Burdick, and Awa Fam. The applause was going in crescendo, but the Fonteta began to tremble when it appeared Raquel Carrera, chosen MVP of the final and Cristina Ouviña and Queralt Casas with the trophy in their hands.
