National and international football returns to Salou

Costa Dorada Trophy 2021 in Salou

Salou. Costa Dorada. 26 November 2021.
After the pandemic moved football away from Salou, the capital of the Costa Dorada finally recovers this sporting activity thanks to the initiative of the Futbol Salou Sport Center, a unique sports complex in the area and one of the best in Europe. Thus, the Surf Cup International and the Costa Daurada Trophy have brought the international soccer competition back to Salou with more than 1200 participants.

The Surf Cup International is contested with 48 teams of children's categories and male and female fingerlings from the United States, Lithuania, Mongolia, Greece, France, Portugal, Catalonia and Spain. This training soccer activity partly coincides with another interesting competition: the Costa Daurada Trophy, in which the U20 women's teams from Germany, Spain, France and Mexico participate. This is a Costa Rica World Cup preparation championship that will be held in August 2022.

That both competitions choose Futbol Salou Sport Center is not by chance, since this sports complex offers 12 soccer fields (11 of them endorsed by UEFA and FIFA) of natural and artificial grass, as well as 1 multipurpose rugby field and 2 beach soccer fields.
The complex also offers a mini stadium with capacity for 1000 people, a professional gym, 24 dressing rooms, classrooms, and a cafeteria bar.

The proximity to Barcelona (1 hour from the airport); Salou's good weather with mild winters and 300 days of sunshine a year, in addition to the offer of accommodation in the Cambrils Park Sport Village, 10 minutes from the sports complex, make the Futbol Salou Sport Center a highly recommended option to celebrate stages or sports tournaments and competitions and, specifically soccer.

This is recognized by the Salou City Council, who, through the mayor, Pere Granados, has pointed out the importance of this complex to seasonally adjust tourism in the capital of the Costa Dorada and to obtain the certification of a Sports Destination in soccer.

For his part, Xavier Blasi, general director of Futbol Salou Sports Center, recalls that “although it began as a center for northern European clubs to do a stage in Salou due to the conditions it offers, as we have grown and we have built more fields, it has become an incomparable space to hold a tournament in Spain ”.

Blasi has also said that they hope to be able to recover the levels of pre-pandemic activity soon, when the complex had come to host up to 22 annual tournaments with up to 20,000 annual participants.
