Last week, the city of Braga received in Brussels the distinction of Best European City of Sport 2018. Throughout the year, Braga received up to now 575 events of 74 modalities, in a total of 4000 hours of activity with more than 110 000 participants and 300 000 spectators.
Among the objectives that Braga intended to achieve as the European City of Sport, Ricardo Rio stressed “making sport in Braga increasingly inclusive, open to participation by all, not distinguishing ages, conditions and, above all, creating awareness that sport is, in fact, an element of territorial development“. The mayor of Braga said that this award is an additional stimulus for Brabantans to “adopt sport as a way of life.”
