The Prince Philip Pavilion Zaragoza will host the great women’s basketball festival between March 30 and April 2. The Aragonese capital will host the Copa de la Reina, the competition that brings together the eight best teams in Spain. The raffle, held at the Zaragoza City Councilhas decided to cross Casademont Zaragoza with Kutxabank Araski from Vitoriaranked seventh in the Endesa Women’s League, but managed to beat Cantero’s team in the match held in Vitoria.
All those attending the raffle agreed that this edition may be “one of the best” in the history of this competition. To begin with, due to the level of the teams that compete, with one of the most disputed leagues in recent years, with options to command the table for a good handful of teams; and to continue, due to the large public attendance that is expected, with more than 4,200 tickets already sold when there are still two and a half months to go before the start of the tournament.
The match between Aragonese and Vitorian will be played on the opening day, on Thursday, March 30. Despite the fact that the clash that faced them in the league ended with victory for Vitoria by 63 to 58 -the rojillo team arrived with a lot of accumulated load on their legs-, the Aragonese club is confident that the support of the fans is decisive to overcome the quarterfinals. That same day on Thursday 30 -at times yet to be defined- Valencia Basket-Movistar Estudiantes will also be played.
The rival of the women’s Casademont will come out of this crossing in the semifinals, in case Cantero’s team overcomes Araski. A) Yes, If logic prevails, the Aragonese team would face Valencia Basket in the run-up to the final, a very complicated matchup due to the potential of the Valencians, co-leaders in the league and one of the physically strongest blocks. It was in Valencia, precisely, where Casademont suffered their first defeat in the league (63-58). The Valencian team was designated as the rival to avoid on the way to the final, but luck wanted it to cross the path of Casademont in the semifinals.
The president of the Aragonese team, Reynaldo Benito, has assessed that his team will go “step by step”, but with the aim of going “as far as possible”. “It doesn’t matter who is better or worse, we will always compete with respect for the rival but using our strengths to advance,” she pointed out.
On Friday, March 31, the other two quarterfinal matches will be played: Spar Girona-Lointek Gernika and Perfumerías Avenida-Barça CBS. Saturday, April 1, will be the day of the semifinals, for which there are schedules. The first, the one on the side of the box in which Casademont has fallen, would be held at 4:30 p.m., while the second will be at 7:00 p.m. The final, on Sunday, April 2, is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
Jorge Garbajosa, president of the Spanish Basketball Federation, has stressed that the Women’s League is experiencing “the most even season in history”, and has predicted “A unique show” for the Queen’s Cup. “Women’s basketball is here to stay, it is the engine of women’s sport in Spain,” she pointed out.
For his part, José Miguel Sierra, president of the Aragonese Basketball Federation, recalled that “Zaragoza is a city that loves basketball” and has anticipated that the Aragonese capital “is going to respond once more” with “spectacular tickets” in the Príncipe Felipe pavilion.
Mariano Soriano, General Director of Sports of the Government of Aragon, has highlighted that it is a “very attractive” competition due to the concentration of seven “high-level” matches in a few days, which generates “tension of high competition and with a great public attendance. Finally, the mayor of Zaragoza, Jorge Azconhas closed the act by welcoming everyone, celebrating the success of the public that is predicted and making a forecast: “He’s going to win the Casademont”.
