Lisbon, European Capital of Sport 2021, prepares to welcome the 7th TAFISA World Sports For All Games.
This year, when we began the post-pandemic recovery process and a progressive return to normality, it is important we continue to promote and encourage sports practice and a healthier lifestyle.
Lisbon is proud of its sports tradition and its capability of organizing major sport events, considering sports as a fundamental element for people’s physical and psychological well-being, acting as an important role to training and education of young people as full-fledged citizens, being an instrument that facilitates social development and more inclusive, open and qualified societies at a context of healthy demand.
It is through sports that we learn and deepen values such as sportsmanship, fair play, sacrifice, the principle of learning to live with the disappointment and frustration that result from the defeats, but also with the joy and pride of the victories.
Therefore, it is with great pleasure that Lisbon welcomes and joins the TAFISA World Sports for All Games, an event that enriches the city and promotes a sports culture based on inclusion, equality and plurality, because Lisbon truly is a city for everyone and for all.
