The main competition of women’s tennis for national teams will showcase the Club’s sustainability platform during the matches to be held at the La Cartuja Stadium between November 7th and 12th.

The Billie Jean King Cup, historically known as the Federation Cup, and Real Betis, through its sustainability platform Forever Green, have signed an agreement for the Verdiblanco Club to collaborate in promoting the main competition of women’s tennis for national teams, which will take place at the La Cartuja Stadium in Seville between November 7th and 12th. In turn, the Billie Jean King Cup, which will promote sustainable actions throughout the tournament, will also give visibility to the Forever Green platform during the matches, a vehicle through which Real Betis promotes environmental care.

This collaboration agreement adds to other partnerships previously signed with other major tournaments and competitions to promote sustainable actions such as the final of the King’s Cup in football, the King’s Cup in basketball, and the ACB Supercup, the National Futsal League, the Professional Women’s Football League (Liga F), the Water Polo League, or the Spanish Padel Championship.

Conchita Martínez, one of the greatest Spanish tennis players in history, Wimbledon champion in 1995 and director of the Billie Jean King Cup, visited the Benito Villamarín Stadium, where she was accompanied by the coach of Real Betis Féminas, María Pry, and spoke in the club’s official media about the importance of a tournament that is beginning to generate great excitement among the people of Seville. “We are very happy that it is being played in Seville. An amazing atmosphere is already in the air. The teams are arriving in the city. Everything is ready to enjoy the best tennis with the twelve best countries. It is a unique opportunity to see the best rackets in the world,” she pointed out.

About Billie Jean King Cup.

A historic competition, equivalent to the men’s Davis Cup, which allowed the expansion and growth of women’s tennis worldwide, open to all nations, and which this year celebrates its 60th edition. Launched by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) in 1963 under the name of Federation Cup, which, with the change of format, was renamed Fed Cup since 1995.

In 2020, the competition was restructured again. Its image was changed to align as a global icon dedicated to fighting injustice, inequality, and discrimination in all its forms. And it was renamed the Billie Jean King Cup in recognition of one of the most decorated players in women’s tennis, who played a very active role in the fight for women’s rights both inside and outside the world of sports.

The new format allows for almost all of the top WTA-ranked players to gather in one venue, in this case, at the La Cartuja Stadium in Seville, which will host the final phase of the competition with twelve national teams: Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Poland, Slovenia, Switzerland, and the United States. All these teams are divided into four groups. The winner of each group advances directly to the semifinals.
