Each player of La Roja, o la Furia Roja (The Red Fury), the Spain national football team, will receive from the Consejo Regulador del Jamón de Teruel a Jamón as homage for its success in the European Championship.
The news has been announced by the Consejo Regualdor President, Fernando Guillén, who informed that, as it was declared before the Championship, each player of La Roja, will receive one PDO Jamón de Teruel, “in order to celebrate this epic victory, with one of our country’s most typical products” – he declared.
This event will help strengthen the relationship between the PDO Jamón de Teruel and the Royal Spanish Football Federation. In fact, last September the Consejo gifted the Spain national under-21 football team, with the Jamón de Teruel, number 5 Million.
For the occasion, the head coach Vicente del Bosque, received the medal as “Teruel lover”, and during his visit to the Aragon’s city, he defined Jamón de Teruel, as “the best proceeding from white pig”.
