Oscar Fernandez, president of CB Granada Foundation was able to answer questions from media members and to explain how he is moving towards the success of his entity in the top basketball league. Although the process of becoming an ACB team can be as difficult at the office as it is on the track it is not impossible for a club this young and full with hope. The president joked that "we are a ten year-old boy who has enrolled at university." He also described some aspects of the summer.
It is blessed to be in ACB. It takes a lot of paperwork in order to enroll in ACB. Oscar Fernandez said that there was a lot of paperwork involved in joining and enrolling in ACB. He also highlighted the accomplishment of receiving the audit and the credit payment. The ACB has already received the first budgets, contracts and plans. We will be waiting for them next week to review everything. He also explained the paperwork and the management that was involved in playing at this highest level.
He refers to all companies, managers, and advisory bodies who speed up the process when he speaks of external work. The club also thanks the 100 businesses that provide financial support. The Coviran thing is not named. Their support is amazing. They are the ones who give us the support we need to take on this adventure. All the companies that follow us, both those who were with us before and the ones that are new to us, will welcome us with open arms. We don't ask for crazy things when we ask for money. He was sincere to explain, gratefully, that he can't have a problem dealing with institutions or companies. He stated before Paco Cuenca that the pact he made five years ago with City Council is still in effect and that it is a joy.
The president stated that the citizens of Granada have responded by either taking out a subscription or giving aid to companies and institutions. This is the "little push" that will allow them to enjoy the year. He advised the media to be patient and enjoy, but he also warned them to be patient. He did not miss the opportunity to change the perception of sports promotion. We will have one of the lowest budgets, but we have a strong team. Yes, we have been fighting every year for promotion in all categories and won a large number of home games. He pointed out that it will be difficult to do so in ACB.
Oscar Fernandez finally admitted to responding to recent rumors that the organization chart for the CB Granada Foundation must grow. It will grow naturally, but it must also meet certain requirements set by the ACB. He explained that "many people must enter the club, but we job is to give work the people of Granada," he said positively. We are currently working on these personnel requirements and will soon announce their identities. Although it is true that there will indeed be a sports director, nothing has been finalized. He said goodbye.
Paco Cuenca, for his part, spoke as a loyal follower of the city’s most prominent basketball team and its mayor. It is the beginning of something. He assured us that if they had told us a few years back that we could see it again in the same way as now, and have the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best basketball players, it would have been difficult for us not believe it.
Cuenca believes that the club's greatest accomplishment since 2012, when it was founded, is being "a model of life for many families and young people". Coviran Grannada is a family that revolves around sports, and the City Council takes pride in that fact. To end his speech, he stated that "We are going enjoy a historic time at the Palacio de Deportes. I can only invite people from Granada to dream this dream that is becoming a reality."
