The history of our Sport Village begins when, in May 2012, the Complex Esportiu Futbol Salou was inaugurated, a unique and pioneering facility in Catalonia that has 16 hectares and will help to consolidate a tourism product based around sports. In September of the same year, after five years of construction, the Mediterrània was inaugurated, a new area of Cambrils Park Resort with 170 apartments of category 4* Superior. These have all the equipment and benefits that an athlete may need. The new Mediterranean village means the final elimination of the plots, becoming the first apartment hotel in the area. After the inauguration of the Complex Esportiu Futbol Salou and the Mediterrània area, in Cambrils Park we began the journey as Sport Village, offering accommodation and services adapted for sportsmen during the winter months. Footballers and cyclists, mainly, hold their camps in the resort thus de-seasonalising the traditional tourist season. An extension of the restaurant La Masia to offer buffet service, and a new Fitness & Spa centre, allows us to give a full service during all months of the year, adapting to the client's needs at all times. Complex Esportiu Futbol Salou opens two football fields of hybrid grass. It is a field of natural grass reinforced with synthetic technology in the lower layer. These fields also work for high level teams as previously this technology was only in place at stadiums such as those of FC Barcelona or Real Madrid. The future is a given, more than for the facilities, for the sum of these plus the teams that visit us. Season after season we improve the services offered to athletes, and these respond by enjoying them, repeating, and spreading our fame worldwide. The experience gained guarantees us more and more athletes including those of the first division who choose us for their camps during the preseason period. A refurbishment works process in the accommodations starts. At the Mediterrania the showers are renewed, and televisions are changed. The heather of the roofs of the Aloha bungalow are replaced for a more durable material. Additionally, the Complex Futbol Salou adds to its offer a multipurpose rugby and football pitch and two eleven-a-side football pitches, all of them with artificial turf. Improvement works in all the accommodations of the Resort are finished. In addition, the Complex Esportiu Futbol Salou completes the construction of the Miniestadi, which will provide more privacy to professional and national teams, two international-dimension beach soccer pitches and a seven-a side football pitch.
First division football teams like Helsingborgs IF, managed by Henrik Larsson former barça player; or Crystal Palace FC, a Premiere League team have visited us. Sergi Barjaun, former FC Barcelona dream team player, has also paid us a visit. He came with the team he is currently managing, the Zhejuang GREENTOWN FC.
In cycling, Sport Village has been enjoyed by teams and internationally recognized cyclist like Miguel Indurain, Abraham Olano, Roberto Heras, Claudio Chiapucci or Melcior Mauri, who also organises a Cycling Campus at the facilities. In beach soccer, a growing sport in our facilities, we have hosted the Europe Qualifier for the World Beach Games. Additionally, with the visit of several teams that practice triathlon, rugby, fitness, dancing or even the unknown rollerski the variety of sports we host has grown. In short, athletes are the ones that make it possible for Cambrils Park Sport Village to be a model in sports tourism in the Costa Daurada.
