The Asociación Galega de Xestión Deportiva, AGAXEDE, yesterday awarded Jael Joyería its Galicia Award for Sports Management 2022 as the best sports sponsor, for its collaboration with grassroots clubs and its support for major competitions. The award was presented at the Afundación headquarters in Vigo. Abel Caballero, Mayor of Vigo, presided over the event.
José Mª Fernández, director of Jael, was in charge of collecting the award for the jewelry, in his opinion “an endorsement for the company’s collaboration with clubs and sportsmen and women from the most varied disciplines. We have always believed that we should give back to society the support it gives us, and sport is one of the most suitable areas for this, due to the values of effort, discipline and health promotion that it spreads”.

Since opening its first establishment in Santiago de Compostela in 1994, the company has supported initiatives related to golf, horse riding, paddle tennis, surfing, cycling, crossfit, swimming, basketball, tennis, athletics and rhythmic gymnastics, with an emphasis on grassroots sports, without neglecting its collaboration with leading events such as the Pantín Classic.
For Eduardo Blanco, president of AGAXEDE, “these Galicia awards have become the benchmark for the recognition of the work of Galician sports managers, in their different areas of work. It is about rewarding the effort and voluntary dedication of many leaders, the professional performance of others and the activity developed by public and private Galician sports entities and the companies that support them”.
