Organiser

The Copa Castell is a joint project of UD Cirera, the local Euro-Sportring team and the Catalan Football Association. They guarantee the professional organisation of the tournament.

 

 

Sport facillity

The Copa Castell takes place at a large sports park just outside the seaside resort of Blanes. The grounds feature 15 grass pitches, various other facilities (changing rooms, parking, first aid), and a café bar with a spacious shaded terrace. The grounds come complete with terraces, giving supporters a good view of the fields. During tournament days, there is a multilingual Euro-Sportring desk, where team leaders can go for information and bookings.

Costa Brava/Costa Maresme

The Costa Brava and Costa Maresme are among the most popular coastal areas of Spain. This area, north of Barcelona, is actually one of the most popular coastlines in Europe. In particular, between the towns of Calella and Lloret de Mar you'll find miles of beautiful sandy beaches and boulevards dotted with cafés, clubs and restaurants. Every spot along the coast, from Lloret de Mar to Santa Susanna of Malgrat de Mar, has its own unique charm and attractions.

Barcelona

Barcelona is somewhere you simply have to see. This unique city has a number of extraordinary attractions. The Sagrada Familia is one of the most bizarre and characteristic buildings in the city. This cathedral has been under construction since 1882. The Plaza de Catalunya and las Ramblas are also special meeting points, with lots of shops, restaurants and terraces. Other beautiful areas include the Gothic quarter, with its narrow, picturesque alleyways; Montjuic hill, the location of the Olympic Park and with a stunning view over the city and sea. And last but not least, don't miss out on a trip to Park Guell.

FC Barcelona, Stadion Camp Nou

A visit to Camp Nou stadium is definitely worth the effort. With 110,000 seats it's the largest stadium in Europe. And of course, as a football fan, there's no getting away from FC Barcelona. For the people of Catalonia, ‘Barça’ is more than just a football club. Barcelona unites all Catalonians!
