Discover the sporting side of Barcelona!
In 2017, Barcelona will again play host to major sporting competitions. Its world-class sports facilities and open-air venues will be the setting for all kinds of sporting events: regattas, tennis, horse riding, football, athletics, action and motor sports are just some of the unmissable dates on this year’s sporting calendar. Come and join in the sporting party!
Barcelona’s passion for sport dates back to the end of the 19th century when it spearheaded the introduction of a whole host of sporting specialities to Spain. This tradition has left the city the legacy of many sporting clubs, some of them founded over one hundred years ago and which enjoy enormous worldwide prestige.
In recent years, the city has set the benchmark for urban tourism. At Turisme de Barcelona, we are convinced of the timeliness of combining the city’s appeal with cultural and recreational events and a calendar of international competitions which, year after year, bring the name of Barcelona to worldwide attention.
The Barcelona Sports programme works to promote the main sporting events of international scope held in the Catalan capital which are described in detail on this website and in our catalogue. Barcelona is in great shape. Experience our city through sport! Excitement and entertainment are guaranteed.
Barcelona Sports is a long-established programme with a great deal of experience. You can view previous editions of our catalogue online.
