In addition to winning over 30 international awards, 2021 saw CUPRA launch the CUPRA Born, its first 100% electric vehicle. The footballing ace also celebrated an exceptional year, winning multiple accolades, including the Ballon d’Or, UEFA and Globe Soccer’s Women’s Player of the Year and FIFA’s The Best awards. CUPRA X ALEXIA PUTELLAS seizes this moment to celebrate these achievements, while looking ahead at those to come in 2022.

The collaboration forms part of CUPRA’s #ImpulseOfANewGeneration series, which puts the emotion and electric performance of the CUPRA Born front and centre.  With new videos and content rolling out across CUPRA and the midfielder’s social media channels, followers can participate by sharing pictures of their inspirational role models via Instagram using a unique CUPRA-branded image of Alexia.

CUPRA is committed to women in sport and already counts top-level Padel players Ari Sánchez and Paula Josemaría as members of its Tribe. 

“I’m very proud to kick off 2022 with CUPRA, a brand which brings increased visibility to a new breed of sportspeople that represent the world we live in” said Alexia Putellas. “Together, want to redefine what a role model looks like for the next generation”.
