The Jauja room, Baleària Port, has hosted the presentation of the "Fundació Pilota Championship", an event that will be the next big appointment of the professional pilota. The tournament of new creation has assumed the philosophy of the mixed tournaments, Savipecho, MasyMas and Fundació José Luis López to bring together in the same session the main figures of "raspall" and "escala i corda" as well as their two hobbies. That is why the three trophies come together to create a new one of much more entity.
The details of this new competition were given in an act where most of the players were present, as well as the Vice President of the Pilota Foundation, José Luis Catalunya; Juan Fornés, from the company MasyMas, and Adolfo Utor, from the shipping company Baleària.
In each modality, 4 will participate teams that will play a league composed of six days, three one-way and three-way. This assumes a total of 24 games in this round. At the end of this phase, the two best sets of each discipline will access their respective endings.
The scoring system will be identical to the one used in the previous leagues, with two points for the winners, while the defeated team will have the opportunity to add one. In the case of the "raspall" modality, if it reaches the 20 game, and in the "scale i corda" discipline, if it reaches 30.
Another novelty is that the games will start with the two teams matched to 0. This is a measure designed for new viewers who will find it easier to understand that a game starts with the score at zero. The games of "raspall" will be played to six games (30 so many) and those of "scale i corda" to 8 games (40 so many).
Each team will represent one of the entities that previously named a mixed trophy; Savipecho, MasyMas and Fundació José Luis López, to whom the team joins Baleària.
