Lisbon will be the European Capital of Sport in 2021

Lisbon was nominated European Sport Capital 2021, following the announcement made by the European Capitals and Cities of Sport Federation (ACES Europe).

According to ACES, the award - which guarantees 52 weeks of sport and it is only assigned to cities with more than 500 thousand inhabitants - offers international recognition and visibility to the cities that host it, helping to attract investments.

It is the first time that a Portuguese city has been chosen in this category and Lisbon follows Malaga, which hosts the event this year.

Lisbon European Sport Capital is one of the partners of 7th World Sport Games for All - TAFISA, Lisbon 2021.
