#BeActive for European Week of Sport

Events. European Week of Sport aims to increase the percentage of people getting regular exercise throughout the year and promote sport all around Europe.

European Week of Sport is on from 23 to 30 September. In 2015, the European Commission started the initiative to promote physical exercise all around Europe.

Barcelona, a leading city for sport

Barcelona came out in fourth place in the latest index of sport cities, and third in Europe, in a ranking by the company TSE Consulting and the magazine Around the Rings. The index is based on major sporting events held in cities, their public sports facilities and the active and healthy population of each one. London, Rio de Janeiro and Lausanne were the only cities to top the Catalan capital.
