Yes, it was a greatest moment for me to be part of the training session by Carolina Marin at Modern School, Barakhamba Road, in New Delhi on 27th March, 2017!

Marin is here to promote the Spanish league as its ambassador. LaLiga’s presence in India will help Indian football, whilst offering to support grassroots development programmes alongside having exhibition matches between not only league clubs but also friendlies between legends of the game who have played in Spain.

One of the best professional sports leagues in the world – LaLiga which features popular clubs like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and many more is making significant investments towards the growth of the football league in India.

Carolina Marin passed on some of her expertise to young players from the local club and to the media and blogging fraternity. She made the most of the occasion to also promote Spanish football – LaLiga in India, where she is a massive media icon.

Afterwards, the 23-year-old gushed about what she described as a “unique opportunity” and went on to state that, “It has been a real honor to be able to teach badminton to people who admire us and who really enjoy watching us play. I would like to thank LaLiga for the confidence that has been placed in me by giving me the opportunity to represent Spanish football at World level.”

Speaking on this media engaging activity, LaLiga Ambassador, Carolina Marin said “I am grateful to LaLiga for giving me the opportunity to represent the Spanish league in this great country. It has been a privilege for me to visit India again as I got to interact with fans of both La Liga and badminton. The Indian fans made me feel at home and it was a very interesting battle when I took them on in badminton. I hope my teaching will help them improve their game, a bit.”

Carolina had the opportunity to bring the fans of India, for whom she is a star, both her sport and Spanish football.

Jose Antonio Cachaza, LaLiga’s country manager for India, called Marin’s efforts “a really big deal.” “She’s arguably the best-known Spanish sportsperson here, alongside Rafa Nadal, and we see it as essential to support Spanish sport and for Spanish sport to help us in turn. India is a really important market, where football is increasingly big among young people, among whom LaLiga stars are as popular as anyone from the more established sports here.”

Carolina Marin, currently ranked fourth in the world, is the first seed of the Indian Open, will be up against the likes of home hero P. V. Sindhu. Sindhu was a silver medallist at last year’s Rio Olympics, losing out to none other than Marin in the final. She will debut against South Korea’s Kim Hyo Min.

It was a perfect day with perfect blend of badminton and Spanish football, enabling you to enjoy the best of both sports.
