The Councilor for Sports, Isabel María Molino, has raised a motion to the November plenary to start the file that allows to name the current Football League of Companies of Totana with the name of "Football League of Enterprises Enrique Ambit Palacios."
In addition, it is proposed to acknowledge and thank the work done by Enrique Ambit Palacios for the promotion of sport in Totana, specifically for the promotion of corporate football, through a well-deserved tribute that will be made by the City Council in the session hall and the Delivery of a commemorative plaque to his family.
Enrique Ambit Palacios played a predominant role during the political transition in the promotion of the local sport.
He, together with José Navarro, created the Football League of Companies for local teams, back in 1982.
Thanks to the efforts made by Ambit Palacios in this local football project, little by little, it was consolidated and becoming essential in sports at the municipal level.
In fact, next to the Totana Olympic are the only sports projects that have continued uninterruptedly.
According to the motion, Enrique Ambit spent much of his private life devoted to the promotion of sports: he became an organizer, referee and football player of companies.
In the beginning he was the one who encouraged participation in this Local Football League, and was in charge of making the inscriptions, calendars, designate referees, reserve facilities, make classifications, etc., all by hand, because then there were no means Today with the help of his friend José Navarro.
Its upholstery, workplace, was a meeting point for corporate football.
From Monday to Saturday, delegates and players would pass by to see ratings placed on the walls, calendars and how not to gossip about what happened in the championship over the weekend.
In fact, his upholstery was the social premises of the Football League of Companies, and he always had words and time for all who visited him.
Those were times of great difficulty for the promotion of sport, with hardly any facilities or resources.
Only the effort, or the stubbornness of Enrique, and the affection that it put made possible to save the inconveniences.
This loa would not be complete without reference to the patience and ability to dialogue and consensus that he always demonstrated.
He always found the words just and necessary to calm the tense situations between delegates and team players, to persuade the referees when they did not want to continue "whistling", to complain with the utmost respect that the field of poly, Was able or to claim before the authorities of the time an appropriate treatment to the championship of soccer of companies.
In short, it is very probable that today there would not be the Football Championship of Companies "Play Clean", if in his day, back in the early years of the transition, Enrique Ambit Palacios would not have dedicated his time, effort and patience to make it possible .
It would be a great injustice not to recognize the work Enrique did to promote the sport in Totana, and ungrateful if all this was forgotten by the recent history of our municipality.
In the motion shows that this Councilor of Sports wants the people to recognize those who dedicated their time to the promotion of sports in the years of transition and also thank and recognize what for football companies did Enrique Ambit Palacios.
