It's a joy for any sportsfan and even more for a football fan, as in my case, to see the efforts made by many individuals and organizations to provide opportunities for young people to enjoy what they like : play.
And through playing they learn to share, to work together, to struggle for themselves and for others values that surely they will be very helpful in life. The referees Catalan Football Federation always try to instill these qualities.
The Technical Committee of Referees wants to welcome all participating teams and their escorts and congratulate Euro-Sportring for work carried out over many years organizing tournaments in Catalonia. I myself was formed first as a player and later as a referee, owing to the efforts of many people and this kind of initiatives
And finally, a wish that Fair Play will be visible in every game of the tournament!
Dear Sports Friends,
As the mayor of Tordera I want to welcome all of the participants of Euro-sportring to our town and present it briefly. Tordera has one of the most extensive municipal areas of Catalonia with approximately 84 km2. Two thirds are mountains and the rest is flat.
The territory stands out for the importance of the landscapes and nature, with the Nature Reserve of the Montnegre and the river Tordera, crossing the town by the left side of the urban area. As historical witnesses of time, in Tordera very old monuments are preserved, like an aqueduct built by the Romans, a Romanesque monastery of the 12th century, numerous chapels built between the 11th and 17th centuries, and the symbolic bell tower of the Parochial Church which stands out among the other buildings of the old town and seems to welcome visitors.
Apart from the territory and monuments, our population has a significant activity. As a demonstration of our commercial activity, I recommend you to visit the market which takes place on Sunday mornings and fills the streetsof the town. The market attracts thousands of visitors, attracted by its quality, variety, history and importance. And as an example of the activity developed by the people living in this area, we feel proud of the cultural and sport facilities we offer to both neighbors and visitors.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Tordera and come back with a pleasant memory to your country.
Joan Carles Garcia Cañizares
