  • Singular Sports #004: Aeromodelling

    The Barcelona Sports Institute is promoting a "Singular Sports" campaign to raise awareness of these sports and the places where you can do them in Barcelona. This initiative aims to offer you a range of lesser-known sports that you can do in Barcelona. We kicked off with fencing, archery and horse riding, and now it is the turn of aeromodelling. We've been to the Montjuïc Aeromodelling Centre to learn more about the facilities and the advantages of this municipal centre. Don't miss the fourth special feature in this series on the lesser-known sports people do in Barcelona!

  • Barcelona, the world rugby capital
    The Camp Nou will provide the setting for the 2016 final of the Top 14, the French rugby league, which will be trying to break the world record for attendance at a rugby match, 90,000 spectators, among whom there will be the Barcelona City Council Commissioner for Sport. Apart from the attendance it will mark another very important milestone because before tomorrow the Top 14 final had never been played outside France. The two teams playing for the title, Toulon and Racing 92, will kick off at 8.45 pm in a match that promises to be historic.
  • The week's sports news

    The third week in June sees the start of the final stage of the Catalan Water Polo Championships for all age bands (9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18 years old), which will run from tomorrow to 30 June. Tuesday is International Yoga Day and the Barcelona Sports Institute will keep you informed of what yoga activities are going on in the city through its social media. On top of that the French rugby final is coming to Barcelona for the first time this Thursday, 23 June, for what promises to be a historic occasion. And that's just a little taster for starters!
