Major coup as Karate Cup announced
Sport continues to be a “true tourism ambassador” for the municipality of Los Realejos.
This was the accolade given as details were released of a major event to take place at the town’s municipal sports pavilion in October.
The “Copa de España Internacional de Karate” will bring together athletes from 15 autonomous communities and 12 countries. It will be held on October 26th and 27th.
Mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez stressed the importance of this event which, he said, would be a tourism axis for the municipality. The town would once again become the Canary capital of sport with an appeal which would be international.
President of the Spanish Federation of Karate, Antonio Moreno said the influence of this biennial tournament was beyond doubt and Tenerife Cabildo sports councillor, María del Cristo Pérez agreed, saying: “Sport and tourism should always go hand in hand on this island.”
The karate international will bring in between 400 and 500 people, making arrangements for the infrastructure and logistics a matter of urgency.
