Sports Tourism And Sports Betting In Andalusia

As a whole, Andalusia has long been betting on a tourist model that grows by leaps and bounds in the region, in Spain and in the world. The data presented by the Open University of Catalonia confirms this. Since 2010 this model of economic growth has risen 41.5% in the country, which has reported significant revenues to the state coffers. Further studies reveal that it was able to earn 14,000 million euros in 2018 alone.

Spain, with Andalusia in front, has found a reef in its attempt to change its image when promoting abroad. There is something else to offer the tourist beyond the sun and the party, and that something is found, mainly, in the south. The Junta de Andalucía is, in some way, a pioneer in what is known as active or sports tourism. You only need to see the proportion of golf courses in the entire autonomous community compared to others.

According to the figures published by Statista, there are a total of 92 operational fields at present, that is, it offers more than double its immediate pursuer: Catalonia (40). The majority of tourists who travel here with golf clubs are British nationals, fleeing the rain until the warm Andalusian temperatures where the sun is guaranteed almost 365 days a year.

But Andalusia, as far as sports tourism is concerned, no longer lives solely and exclusively from this sport. The list, thanks to its wide range of facilities, is expanded at times. For example, the coast is a focus of attraction for those interested in learning to practice kitesurfing, surfing or paddle surfing, and the camps, some with all-inclusive packages, hang the bill full on these dates. In fact, the numbers, in terms of hotel occupancy, were last June the best ever since there are records.

In addition, the region has become a standard for the preseason stages of football teams. Throughout the fields of the Marbella Football Center, you have seen this summer exercising at the UD Las Palmas and at other times of the year, sets of much larger cache as well.

Without going any further, Liverpool prepared the 2019 Champions League final in these parts and it cannot be said that it was a bad decision. They won their sixth trophy in the competition, retained their stars and formed an even more competitive block; and according to sports betting, the reds are in a position to expand their continental hegemony for another year, despite the huge competition of giants such as Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund or Manchester City. The two Germans are also habitual of these lands in winter. In the colder months the Bundesliga suffers a break and many Teutonic clubs take refuge on the Costa del Sol, there are even those that move from China.

Even with all of these sporting teams being a part over here, and rousing tourist sports have given a rise to betting in this area as well, something which was noted by Sportsbet, and they are able to predict a rise in the trend for the same.

In short, Andalusia is at the head of sports tourism in Spain. He began to exploit this resource with golf courses, but has expanded the range of tourism for these visitors, becoming idyllic location for pre – season stages of soccer teams throughout the year.
