The Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris is the place where the best football players in the world are crowned every year, both in the men’s and women’s categories. The Ballon d’Or gala, which every year brings together all the stars of world football, was attended this time by our MICFootball 2022 ambassador, Aitana Bonmatí.
Behind the highest individual award in world football, there is a beautiful story that began in the streets of Sant Pere de Ribes and continued in C.F. Cubelles, where she played in a men’s team. Aitana reached her footballing splendour this past season being the best player of the UWCL with F.C. Barcelona and the MVP of the Women’s World Cup with the Spanish National Team.
Two years ago, at the presentation of MICFootball, the best player in the world confessed that, in her first years as a professional footballer, she finished her training sessions at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper and ran to the Costa Brava to enjoy our tournament. She also advised the younger players not to stop dreaming and to take advantage of the opportunity to take part in a competition where the experience is unforgettable.
