    The Barcelona Olympic Foundation, with the support of Barcelona City Council and sponsorship from the International Sports Movies TV Federation (FICTS), is organising the eight edition of BCN Sports Film.

    The best works from the sports film festival will be screened from 8 to 12 May. The main aim is to bring the general public closer to the audio-visual world based around sport and its values.


  • Javier del Arco: Mestre del Motor

    Next Thursday 12 January, at 7 pm, the exhibition "Javier del Arco: Mestre del Motor” will be presented at the Olympic and Sports Museum Joan Antoni Samaranch. For many people connected with motor sport journalism, Del Arco was a master. The museum is paying tribute to his work as a reporter, when he covered numerous races, especially those held at the Circuit de Montjuïc. The Commissioner for Sport, David Escudé, and Del Arco’s widow, Josefina Cristià, will be attending the event.


  • Basketball Tió de Nadal

    Once again the CEM La Mar Bella is the venue for the “Torneig del Tió de Nadal de Bàsquet”. The tournament, organised by the Barcelona School Sports Council (CEEB), will be held throughout the day on Saturday 14 January. Open to boys and girls alike, it will be another festival of school sport and a taster for the second stage of the CEEB’s competitions. The highlight will be the three-point contest, taking place alongside the games and being held for the fourth time.

  • "L'esport fa... per tu"

    Barcelona’s children have an opportunity get to grips with a variety of sports thanks to “L’esport fa… per tu!”, part of the municipal schooltime physical activities’ programme for young children and teenagers, “L’escola fa esport a la ciutat”.

    This initiative pays special attention to those sports with little take up among the school-age population. There are a number of options for each sport at various educational levels, but they all follow the same process. Experts from the corresponding federation train PE teachers, offering them a package of specific materials for several weeks, along with an educational idea to be carried out with students. Finally a joint activity is held with several schools at a city venue that is suitable for that sport. Check the guide for all these sports here.

    The subsidies have been assigned a budget of €1,600,000 and are aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 17 from low-income families. The families must be registered Barcelona residents and be preregistered in an approved sports-organisation activity included in the "L’esport ens fa més grans" [Sport makes us more grown-up] programme. This aims to help children and young people from low-income families to practice some type of sport outside school hours. As the Sports Commissioner, David Escudé, said: “We regard school sport as a children's right, because of the importance it has in their personal development. Sport provides our children and young people with unquestionable values and we have to ensure that they all have access to it”.
