PortAventura Business & Events organises exclusive opening of PortAventura for FC Barcelona team and their families
The Manager of the first team of FC Barcelona, Luis Enrique, surprised his squad last Friday with a family day out to PortAventura. By taking in a tour of the areas of Polynesia, China, México, Far West, Mediterrània and SésamoAventura, opened exclusively for the team’s enjoyment, the reigning champions of Champions League and their families were able to explore the largest themed resort in Spain, and a major European leisure destination, and its most spectacular attractions: Shambhala, Dragon Khan and Hurakan Condor, amongst everything else on offer. The players did not want to miss any of the star attractions and plucked up the courage to tackle PortAventura’s record-breaking roller coasters, where excitement and adrenaline-fuelled cries could be heard all around. The youngest members of the Barça family also had the opportunity to meet Woody and the friendly Sesame Street characters.
FC Barcelona was surprised with an unconventional day out devised by their manager Luis Enrique. The scarlet-and-blue boys’ trainer was responsible for organising this family leisure activity, which was very well received by the team. The coaching staff believes that days like today, having fun with loved ones at PortAventura, are a vital team training strategy.
“PortAventura Business & Events offers the opportunity for exclusive opening of theme park areas for companies that hold their events at our facilities, which was the case of FC Barcelona, taking advantage of the fact that the park is closed Monday to Friday during the current season. Other companies such as HP, IBM, L’Oreal and Nike have also turned to PortAventura to arrange exclusive access to the resort” reports Laura Valdeolivas, Director of PortAventura Business & Events. “Everyone at PortAventura is proud to have hosted this special occasion and to have played its part in organising this wonderful surprise for the players and their families”.

Thursday 16th January saw the start of the Rally RACC 2014 season, a new edition of the world championship Rally RACC Catalunya-COSTA DAURADA based once again on site at PortAventura and PortAventura Convention Centre. This, the 50th Rally RACC Catalunya-COSTA DAURADA, will be held between 24th and 26th October 2014, again as the penultimate scoring event for the world championships.
PortAventura will be one of the most important core hubs for the race. Its hotels will accommodate many of the team members participating in the rally, while the large central parking will be used as the Service Park. PortAventura confirms for yet another year its partnership with the Rally, linking PortAventura Business & Events and RACC to permit a close working between the two brands.
On 4 November 2012, the company Running Solutions joined forces with PortAventura in the PortAventura Foundation’s 1st Cursa Solidària; two road races of 4.5km and 10km in addition to other shorter fun runs for children with a route based around the theme park. All proceeds from the race went to buying food essentials for the Tarragona region Food Bank Foundation. This charity race is just one of the foundation’s many social and environmental commitments.
The start and finish for the runners was situated at the PortAventura Business & Events Convention Centre. The 10km 1st “Cursa Solidària” saw 737 runners taking part, including the Spanish champion Jaume Leiva, who also came in first place. He took 30 minutes and 26 seconds. In the 4.5km, the runner from the same team Runnersworld Tarragona, Sergi Hidalgo, was awarded first place with a time of 16 minutes and 36 seconds.
