During her eleven years at Roldan FS, Marta, who played a part in gaining promotion to the First feminine division, caught the eye of the Spanish national team in 2015, playing in the V1 Futsal World Championship.

Marta, who joined Italian club Futsal Cagliari in 2016, returned to the club this season after a spell at Futsal Florentia.
