Ricoh Espana S.A. (RES), a sales subsidiary, not only sponsors Ricoh Premia, a football club in Barcelona, but also helps with education and vocational training for the young players in the team. Football is the national sport in Spain, while it is difficult for young players who cannot become professional players to find employment, and this has become a social issue. This project is the first innovative attempt in Spain to address the issue, which has been reported many times in newspapers and on TV. The project has been running for a year, and about half of the players who participated in the project work now at RES.
