Special Valencia 2017 International Women's Day Kit Released

Spanish La Liga club Valencia CF will commemorate this year's International Women's Day (March 8th) by displaying the logo of UN Women on their kit in Sunday's game against Atletico Madrid. It is the first time in history that the UN Women logo is present in a Spanish Primera División fixture.

Valencia 2017 International Women's Day Sponsor

This is the one-off Valencia jersey to celebrate the 2017 International Women's Day.

Based on the regular sponsorless Adidas Valencia 16-17 away shirt, the special VCF kit for Sunday's clash against Atlético features the UN Women logo on the front and the '50/50 planet by 2030' equal opportunities campaign slogan on the sleeve. '50/50 planet by 2030' is a campaign for the fulfilment of the Sustainable Development Objectives for 2030, putting an emphasis on equal rights and opportunities for men and women.

Valencia have been a donating partner to the United Nations agency since 2015. Both entities share the message of pushing for equal rights and opportunities for men and women, and the eradication of domestic violence in all forms. The game will be the first in a series of matches in which VCF will display the logo on their kit.
