The new Consell de Mallorca initiative means town halls across the island can apply for funding for new outdoor sports equipment.
The Consell de Mallorca has approved the granting of €5,200,000 to different town halls for outdoor sports equipment. The main objective of these funds is to promote physical activity throughout Mallorca. The President of the Consell de Mallorca, Catalina Cladera, together with the Councilor of Transition, Tourism and Sports, Andreu Serra, and the Island’s Director of Sports, Margalida Portells, visited Marrachi on July 20 to present the initiative and explain the requirements that local entities will have to meet to be eligible.
Grants will be available for seven different types of equipment, such as calisthenics areas, children’s playgrounds, skate parks and athletics tracks. The amount that may be requested by each municipality will depend on the number of inhabitants. Once the grant has been granted, the Direction des Sports will provide support and technical advice.
Consell President Catalina Cladera said that in recent years the Consell has invested a total of 27 million euros in improving sports facilities and creating new ones.
