The fact that this title has been granted to our city is an endorsement of the work done in the city in sports. One of the objectives proposed by the City Council is to increase the number of inhabitants of Malaga who do sports, with special interest in outdoor sports practices. It is also intended that this 2020 be a framework to encourage private companies to become sponsors of athletes or clubs.

During 2020 there will be several notable events to boost the Malaga 2020 brand. Some are already common in the Malaga sports calendar, such as the Half Marathon or the Sports in Fair program, but there will also be more extraordinary events, such as the celebration of the Copa del Rey of the Endesa League of basketball or the Spanish Cup futsal. These are some of the events already confirmed by the City Council, although the agenda is still open:

-The final phase of the Basketball ‘Copa del Rey’  (February 13-16)

– Spanish Futsal Cup (from March 5 to 8)

– Caixabank Half Marathon City of Malaga (March 22)

-The Congress for the Sport of the Elderly (April)

-The Oncofootball tournament of Spain soccer 7 (also in April)

-Visit of the Harlem Globertrotters basketball show (May)

-Football Tournament 7 of People with Different Capacities (June)

-Spanish Athletics Master Championship (July 3 to 5)

-Sports in Fair Program (August)

-World Padel Tour circuit tournament (August)

-II International Sea Rowing Open (September)

Malaga and Sport make a good combination, don’t you think?
