Following the grand event of the “II Mundialito de Fútbol de Torrevieja”, which saw full attendance at football fields, the sports tourism sector has been bustling. Finnish clubs HIFK and FC Espoo immersed themselves in a week of trainings, friendly matches, and beach activities. Sweden’s Klippans FF, bringing its senior male team, similarly enjoyed Torrevieja’s sports and leisure offerings. Efforts by the city’s Sports Council and Sports Tourism Department have significantly contributed to Torrevieja’s appeal as a sports tourism destination during the off-season. Local officials and organizers, including Athletiq Finland SL and Joonas Kolkka of Football Events, have been pivotal in promoting Torrevieja among international sports groups, with plans to continue collaborations into 2025.
