Copa Maresme

May 29-June 1st 2020

Looking for a special experience? Then look no further than Costa Brava! The name alone conjures up thoughts of a gorgeous holiday. And lovers of football can add the magic of FC Barcelona into the mix as well.

Each year, the popular coastal region to the north of Barcelona attracts many teams from across Europe and even the USA to its sunny climes. The magnificent beaches, endless attractions, beautiful weather and the magical sound of Camp Nou stadium are like a magnet for football fanatics.

The tournament takes place at a large sports park just outside the seaside resort of Blanes. The park features 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 desk, where team leaders can go for information and bookings.

The Area

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.

The Sagrada Familia

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 having 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.

Camp Nou Stadium

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!
