Strategic Plan


Through the Barcelona Sports Institute, Barcelona City Council aims to give impetus to sports policy in the city in all areas in order to meet the needs and demands generated by sport in Barcelona.

To this end, it has drawn up the Strategic Plan for Sport, the instrument used to define the strategy for improving the sports system in Barcelona in the future.

The Plan came about as a result of a process involving representatives from different sectors and the various players and agents involved in sport in Barcelona.


The proposal for the Strategic Plan for Sport in Barcelona 2012-2022 was presented to the Full City Council meeting on 25 July 2012.
