Newly-promoted La Liga outfit Girona are conducting a study into whether it would be feasible for dogs to attend their matches alongside supporters.

The Catalan outfit sealed a return to the top tier last season after finishing sixth in the Segunda Division and embarking upon an impressive run through the play-offs to earn a spot back at the high table of Spanish football.

Now, following a sponsorship deal with pet food and care brand Gosbi for the upcoming campaign, club CEO Nacho Mas-Baga has laid out plans for them to become the first “pet-friendly” team in the world.

Mas-Baga was quoted by Marca:

There are a series of state regulations on how to access a football stadium.

But it is being studied whether it is possible to accommodate [dogs] in a specific space in the stadium.

So that there can be a place for everyone and the stadium is a family space and thought, also, from the animal respect.

Much of the drive behind Girona’s pet-friendly research comes after partnering with Gosbi as their new sponsor for the 2022-23 campaign, with their partnership intended to provide more than mere remuneration.

Mas-Baga added:

It is not a purely commercial message. It goes further. They help us to give a message to make society aware of animal respect.

It is a sponsorship that goes far beyond putting your brand and your logo on the Girona shirt.
