LaLiga football team RCD Mallorca has partnered with environmental services provider PreZero and cybersecurity specialist XM Cyber as part of plans to make the Estadi Mallorca Son Moix the first zero-waste stadium in Spain.

PreZero will optimise waste management for RCD Mallorca, with the two parties to work together towards the zero-waste goal and promote more sustainable consumption of resources in sport.

The agreement with XM Cyber will seek to raise awareness about cybersecurity. PreZero and XM Cyber are divisions of German multinational retailer Schwarz Group.

RCD Mallorca said it will become the first LaLiga team to implement zero-waste plans. Opportunities will be created for fans to reuse and recycle at the club’s stadium as part of the agreement with PreZero.

Wolf Tiedemann, chief executive of PreZero International, said: “We want to take advantage of our strengths together and serve as an example for more responsible resource consumption, both for sport and for society.

“We are proud to begin collaborating closely with RCD Mallorca. Together with the club and its supporters and fans, we want to raise awareness about the circular economy and, therefore, about the conservation of natural resources.”

Andy Kohlberg, president of RCD Mallorca, added: “We are delighted to announce this strategic collaboration with the Schwarz Group and that PreZero and XM Cyber become official collaborators of RCD Mallorca. Our club is immersed in an important process of growth and internationalisation and this agreement represents another great step on our path.

“This alliance shows that RCD Mallorca is doing things well and that it attracts the interest of important international entities. The long-term collaboration will mark the beginning of a common path in the areas of resource conservation, recycling management and digital security.”

In January, RCD Mallorca played its first match at the new-look Estadi Mallorca Son Moix as the club drew 1-1 against Celta Vigo.

The stadium underwent a €30m (£25.6m/$31.9m) renovation project over the course of a year and a half. The project resulted in the removal of the stadium’s athletics track to bring fans closer to the pitch.
