In this way, the Sports City begins the month of January with several Norwegian and Finnish Athletics clubs training in its facilities, all of them carrying out their sports holidays with various modalities: running, long jump, high jump, and javelin throws and weight. During their training you can see how they enjoy the climate we have in our city, which offers them sunny days, and although they have experienced some days with wind and cold, for them the training conditions are quite good.

The football clubs Pax, Fortuna Be Quick and Victoria, all of them are carrying out various training sessions in the Ciudad Deportiva and have played a triangular match between them.

The Arnhemseboys Football Club has also visited our city, also of Dutch origin and in this first year in Torrevieja they are carrying out various training sessions and will play a friendly match in the area. .

This extraordinary launch of 2024 will be completed with the visit of the DVV'09 football team also from the Netherlands, who will arrive in Torrevieja this coming Friday, being the fourth time that our city becomes their favorite destination.
