As Migair said, this aircraft is a Privilege Style, and it flies on behalf of some clubs, the Spanish soccer federation, but also many other clients such as other airlines that need a back-up aircraft, charter flights contracted by travel agencies, etc. etc.
The aircraft is not exclusive to the federation. This just change the sticker each time they change the client. I saw this aircraft with many other stickers.

Mexico doesn´t have a Federation jet, but some of the Primera División (Premier League) Team Owners do, so when it comes to International tournaments where the Mexican National Team plays, a whole little air force shows up as was the example in WM 06 in Germany:
Three clubs are known to have jets within their club's sister companies:
Club América - Grupo Televisa - Jets Ejecutivos, S.A.
Chivas de Guadalajara - Grupo Omnilfe
Monarcas Morelia - Grupo Salinas
and they are all well known to back up the Mexican National Team with their air fleets.
The most famous case being the death of Mexican goalie Oswaldo Sánchez´s father during World Cup 2006 where he and his family were flown back and forth between Guadalajara and Germany.
The most famous plane from all these fleets was:
It is now flying for someone in the UAE.
But nonetheless Grupo Omnilife will get a brand new Embraer Lineage 1000 next year.
Grupo Televisa is a full owner of Jets Ejecutivos and a co-owner of Volaris and:
Grupo Salinas has placed a firm order for 25 Bombardier Learjet 60 XR aircraft. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/n...any-launches-with-1.5bn-order.html
With this Mexico has not only a single jet for its national team but a whole air force.
If we only had a good team!
Mexico just lost 0-1 to Jamaica in Kingston in the South Africa qualifying rounds...
Here is the 772 used to carry the England teanm to Dubai for some R&R and then on to the FIFA World Cup Finals in Korea and Japan and, as can be seen, it is still wearing "Official Airline England Football Team" titles:
Since then a series of shorthaul aircraft have carried the England team to the European Championship finals and the World Cup in Germany. All of these short haul flights have originated at LTN as it is the nearest airport to the England training ground. And, at least since the BA IOM-LTN service was discontinued, you are only likely to see a BA aircraft at LTN on diversion or when one is carrying the England team.

I believe England don't use BA any more, or rather, BA stopped carrying the England team. I know that when they went to Skopje to play Macedonia a couple of years ago, they used a Titan 757 (G-ZAPU) from Luton.
