The European Championships that Madrid will host from April 25th to April 30th, which the Spanish Badminton Federation (FESBA) has organized in a record time to respond to Badminton Europe’s appeal, will finish the cycle that began in 2018 with the celebration in Huelva of this same competition.
The Madrid 2022 European Badminton Championships have caused furor in the capital of Spain, which is also the 2022 World Capital of Sport. In addition, it should be noted that the largest continental event in this sport has the support of Iberdrola as the main sponsor, as well as high-status sponsors like Banco Santander and ElPozo.
During the World Championships celebrated in 2021 in Huelva in the middle of a global Covid pandemic, conditioned and complicated the logistical and organizational tasks. However, FESBA demonstrated once again that it’s trustworthy, hence the offer to host this European 2022 is not a coincidence.
Madrid, World Capital of Sport 2022, will also be the European capital of badminton for a week contributing in this way to reunite Europe’s best badminton players at Gallur Municipal Sports Center, that is prepared for the challenge and where it’s expected that fans will rise to the challenge.
The comeback of the five-time winner Carolina Marín and the rest of the Spanish team, which includes the Olympians Pablo Abián and Clara Azurmendi, will bring enough interest to the European Championships to leave a mark in Madrid. FESBA’s goal is to continue organizing highest level competitions and the best way to achieve this is to show that, with the support of all the institutions, we can do it.
