Benito Villamarin to provide perfect backdrop to first LaLiga Santander Experience event of 2019

The captivating charm of Seville and a blockbuster bout between Real Betis and Real Madrid are the main ingredients of the programme's opening instalment of the year. Thanks to LaLiga's official broadcasters WOWOW and SuperSport, the roadshow's latest stop-off will feature the lead singer of Japanese band MAN WITH A MISSION and South African actress Thuso Mbedu.

With the Christmas break fast becoming a distant memory, the LaLiga Santander Experience is back with a bang. The delights of Seville and the indescribable atmosphere that reverberates around the Benito Villamarin on matchdays are set to come together to form the ideal setting as the initiative gets back up and running alongside WOWOW and Super Sport, LaLiga's official operators in Japan and South Africa respectively.

The vocals behind rock band MAN WITH A MISSION and TV star Thuso Mbedu are poised to take centre stage as they get a behind-the-scenes look at an iconic club within the Spanish game in the shape of Real Betis, before rounding their visit off by taking in one of the season's most eagerly anticipated fixtures amongst the Verdiblancos' faithful on Sunday night: the visit of Real Madrid (20:45 CET kick-off).

Watching the Betis players being put through their paces in training, discovering the city's major attractions, testing their LaLiga knowledge in a series of challenges… all this and much more besides lies in wait for the special guests during a four-day getaway that will see football, culture and laughter aplenty combine to offer up a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Seville promises to play host to some thrilling encounters and fun-filled moments are sure to be the order of the day. Meanwhile, you can keep right up to date with proceedings on social media through the #LaLigaExperience hashtag.
