Ser Gipuzkoa radio has broadcast the programme Hoy por hoy from Ipurua
It was attended by, among others, the Mayor of Eibar, the Gipuzkoa Minister of Culture and Sport and the President of Eibar
The Mayor of Eibar, Miguel de los Toyos; The Minister for Culture and Sport from Gipuzkoa, Denis Itxaso; and the President of SD Eibar, Alex Aranzábal, have today taken part in the programme Hoy por hoy (Today), broadcast from the box at Ipurua by the radio station Cadena Ser Gipuzkoa.
During the programme, Denis Itxaso has stressed that if Eibar “set out a project” for the renovation of Ipurua that “enjoys consensus and in the eyes of the Diputación (Provincial Council) is a reasoned investment”, the regional entity “will support it”.
“If the city council endorses it, the Diputación will have to commit itself. Eibar is a team from Gipuzkoa that fills us with pride and one that we have to support. Gipuzkoa cannot ignore the aspirations of Eibar. If a project that enjoys consensus is submitted, we will support it”, he said
In this regard, the Mayor of Eibar said that, while for the work on the North Stand (already finished), the Council approved a Partial Development Plan “with 11 votes out of 21 and resident’s protests”, only yesterday there was a plenary session to approve the modification of the Plan for the work to the East Stand, which will begin in May, and it “was approved unanimously” by all the parties - and with the favourable opinion of the residents. “There has been an effort on the part of the Club to listen to the residents and to reach agreements. The sum of all this can be to unite forces with the institutions”.
For his part, Alex Aranzábal expressed his belief that “sooner or later we are going to reach agreement with the institutions” for the financing of the works.
He also referred to the situation of the team in this final stretch of the season and underlined that “these last three games are very important because this is the best season in the history of Eibar and we want to get as high as we can in the table”.
