Alhaurin de la Torre named Sports Capital of Europe for 2015

AN incredible 200 sports competitions are to be held in Alhaurin de la Torre next year.

The benchmark figure has been set after the town was chosen as 2015 European Sports Capital.

The European Capitals and Cities of Sports Federation (ACES) announced that the bustling town near Malaga will hold the honour.

Mayor Joaquín Villanova explained what a fantastic place Alhaurin de la Torre was for sports, not just due to its fantastic weather, but because the town is home to 38 sporting facilities, where over 60 different sports are practiced by nearly a third of the town.
