    Eva’s latest project is a nod to her devotion to the empowerment of women through her sport, which in July 2020, saw her announce the formation of Angel City, the first majority owned and led by women soccer team in Los Angeles.

    The star created the Eva Longoria Foundation in 2012, where the ethos is to reduce the educational gap for Latin women, and fight poverty in the Latin community.

    Following her collaboration with LaLiga, she revealed David has taken her to many games which helped spark her love further.

    She said: ‘When David Beckham played for LA Galaxy we went to a lot of games because one of my best friends is Victoria so we went to many games at the stadium all the time and that was a lot of fun…

    ‘And now there’s the LA Football Club which is the other team we have in Los Angeles and that stadium is beautiful…

    ‘We went to watch Davids team Inter Miami play against LAFC. They have the most beautiful [stadium] – you feel like your watching a European team because we don’t have that football culture in the United States. 

    ‘And that’s the first time I’ve felt the same level of engagement from fans at the LAFC games. I go a lot to the games. I have so many favourite players, such as Messi, Ronaldo, David of course, Sergio Ramos. I like that he’s from Andalucia.’
