The former Real Madrid president will receive the RFEF's highest award posthumously.
The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has awarded its highest award, the gold and diamond insignia, to Lorenzo Sanz. This has been decided by its Board of Directors in a remote meeting that has been held this Wednesday. The former president of Real Madrid from 1995 to 2000 passed away on 21 March and will be honoured posthumously by the RFEF.

When the COVID-19 crisis ends, the Federation will organize an act of remembrance for Lorenzo Sanz, in which his wife and children will be present and where the aforementioned insignia will be awarded to them. In this way, the RFEF wants to have a memory "with a person who has belonged to all the institutions of Spanish football", in the words of the president, Luis Rubiales.

Tribute to the victims of the coronavirus
Furthermore, at the start of the meeting, a tribute was paid to all those who have died as a result of the coronavirus and, at Rubiales' suggestion, it was also decided to honour the memory of those affected by this disease in the world of football. To this end, an artistic creation will be made, as a memorial table with the names of the deceased, which will be placed in a special place in the City of Football in Las Rozas.
