Andalusia (Spain) officially recognized as first European Region of Sport for the year 2021.
Great work, extraordinary candidature and new category is running from now with a top benchmark.
Congratulations to all the team who makes this dream a reality with almost 800 municipalities involved.
Andalusia presented its candidacy for this distinction at an event on June 25, in which Juanma Moreno, President of the Region, highlighted the potential of Andalusia and the role that sport plays ‘as a vehicle to forge a more sensitive, responsible, tolerant and sustainable society’.
They defend that the privileged geographical situation of Andalusia makes the region an ideal place for practicing a very wide variety of sports, from kitesurfing in Tarifa (Cádiz) to winter sports in Sierra Nevada, passing by the events that take place throughout the year, or the large number of golf courses scattered throughout the territory, all of which ‘make the Andalusian community a tourist-sports destination of first level’.
