Chubut, Argentina, November 23, 2015 - Last Monday, at the Multiespacio facilities, took place the official presentation of the women's team of Municipal Comodoro Vóley, team of the city of Comodoro Rivadavia that will represent the petroleum area at the Argentine Women's League looking forward to advance to the next phase. At the presentation were present City Hall and Chubut Volleyball Federation (FeChuVol) authorities.

The four-team competition will take place in Comodoro Rivadavia, December 5th - 7th with teams from the South and North Patagonian Region and the matches will be held at Gimnasio Municipal No. 1 live broadcast by internet television.

After showing FeVA last years' activities video, the players got into the hall dressed for a party, each escorted by a mini volleyball player. Then, the team and the coaching staff received a Certificate from FeChuVol authorities.

Maria Cristina Spanos, Matias Fernandez and Alejandro Gimenez supporting the party dressed the girls hair and put make-up on their faces without getting any payment.

Mario Saavedra, one of the coaches expressed: "It is an honour to stand with the team. Comodoro Rivadavia players and from other surrounding cities that participate of our league are part of our players. We obtain the qualification and now we are one of the two best teams of South Patagonian. The goal is to qualify for the next phase. We worked very hard and the girls give their utmost to fulfil this target. I want to thank the players for their effort, to Adrian for this chance and to Deportes Comodoro that put their facilities to fulfil our needs not only helping us with weights but also on the playing field. And a great congratulation to our fans, too".

"We see in our matches complete families, boyfriends, husbands, brothers and the whole volleyball family cheering for our team because volleyball is a family sport. We will try to fulfil our next goal. Something that starts with some crazy ideas, with these players now here, proud of being presented and thinking on the great responsibility that it means to be playing for our team. I believe it is the right moment to give the quality jump to compete at the premier women's league of the country" emphasized Gustavo Rasgado, FeChuVol President.

Hernan Martinez, City Hall General Sport Director added: "I thank our people that came to be part of this dream. We will start working to make a video of our team like Las Panteras have. Our targets are fulfilled with work and more work and I have seen them train and that is very important. I want to congratulate Gustavo (Rasgido) because these challenges show that things can be done in Comodoro Rivadavia allowing the city to view good volleyball”.

The chief of Ente Comodoro Deportes finished saying: “I am also very proud to be part of this dream. We only dream and we will go on supporting these crazy group of dreamers. The money to support the project will show up. When I heard that one of the players decided to pospone her maternity to be part of the competition, it showed the excitement and emotion they have. Our women's volleyball is growing and we as city and province will support them. The victory is not the goal, the goal is to start walking in this kind of competitions and open the doors for those that will follow our volleyball love".
