This sporting event, which welcomes the autumn, would not be possible without the official sponsorship of companies such as Hospital Universitario de Torrevieja of the Grupo Rivera Salud, AGAMED, Caja Rural Central and ASERPRO OREMFI who have provided the resources which enable the tournament to take place this year.
