European City of Sport 2019  …  Budapest or Malaga!?!

The Brussels-based ACES will be announcing the winner between

October 26 and 28.2015.

But first things first …  The Municipality of Budapest was represented by deputy mayor  – Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky and the 11 ACES members staying for a couple of days in Budapest … The European Capitals of Sport Association (European Capitals of Sport Committee – ACES)“The European Capital of Sport” was first announced in the year 2001.

The deputy mayor highlighted the objectives contained in the tender that the enjoyment of promoting everyday physical activity in the elementary and secondary high-school is a case that Hungary is implementing into the daily school life. Also in favor of athletic performance, ambition, sense of community, the fair-play spirit of awareness and to improve health. Applications can be promoted not only by winning a competitive sport, but also wanting to give emphasis on presenting and promoting its leisure sports as well. The Committee expressed its pleasure to manage to bring everyday sports training. The President said in Europe it has not quite been realized this method, and this incentive will be separately taken into account and make sure it is observed in the selection process. According to the question of​​infrastructure developments, the deputy major answered, by saying, in recent years, more developments has been realized in the capital. As for an example, at the Margaret Island the path had been renewed at the running circle and as we are here just talking, looking out the window can view the renewed Ice Rink overlooking at the Castle of Vajdahunyad. Came up with another example to the Water World Cup 2017 – Budapest preparations which are on the go and underway. So it can be seen already that not only the institutions will be rich in Budapest, but also experience the fact that Hungary is not only good with buildings, but also good with having athletes and sports leaders who have had already international experience within participating, arranging different level of sport events, but also experiences in engagements to the Olympic Games.

Mr. Gian Francesco Lupattelli – President  ACES, also updated the participants, saying …  Q.: „This year, Torino bears the title, which organizes around 1,200 sporting events per year. Next year will follow Prague, thenafter Marseille and Sofia continues the line.”

Last but not least … This application will help in Budapest’s 2024 Olympic candidature, and focusing media attention to the capital!

Now we only have to wait for a couple of days to find out who come first in arranging …
