MADRID

World Capital of Sports
The European Badminton Championships join the list of major events to be held in Madrid, World Capital of Sports 2022

Madrid, World Capital of Sport 2022: a worldwide sporting recognition of our capital.

We have achieved to increase the population that considers physical exercise as part of their daily routine, also increasing the visibility of women in sport. This is a reflection of the transformation we are experiencing towards a more equal society.

Madrid is an open, diverse and cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural and natural heritage. It is the second city in the world with more green spaces. It has a modern infrastructure and facilities, and the desire to make them more accessible, within the objective of creating inclusive architecture . In addition to its wonderful network of transport and the city’s subway, fourth in the world in terms of extension, Madrid promotes good habits using sustainable urban mobility.

For all these reasons, Madrid is the ideal city to host the European Badminton Championships, because in addition to having the support of the city council it also has the support of the people of Madrid, the main protagonists of sport and life in the city.

There are those who run every day along the Paseo del Prado and El Retiro Park, which have been declared World Heritage by UNESCO, while others prefer to ride a bike, which is gradually gaining space on the streets. National and regional federations, local clubs and neighborhood sports centers keep the torch of hope alive.

We have seen great athletes born in our stadiums and thanks to events such as the Mutua Madrid Open tennis or the EDP Rock`n’Roll Marathon, among others, we see the best international athletes compete in our city.

Normally everyone wants to come back, because in addition to being the world capital of sport, we are the capital of gastronomy, shopping, entertainment and culture, and we have something even more exceptional: the secret to make the most of life.
