Methodological note

The Law of Sports of Catalonia states that municipalities are responsible for keeping an updated inventory consisting of the name and characteristics of the sports facilities existing within their confines.

As a result, a series of concepts must be considered:

  • Sports Venues are places adapted for the pursuit of any given type of physical or sports activities.
  • Sports Facilities are sports-oriented spaces built expressly for doing sport.
  • Sports Activity Area is used for areas whose environment or facilities which are not specifically sports-related are used for doing sport.
  • Conventional Sports Venue refers to a well-defined model having specific dimensions.
  • Unique Sports Venue refers to a configuration that largely depends on the shape of the terrain or the design of the sports venue itself.
