Professional for clubs, fun for amateurs
Many national teams and sports clubs have already had training sessions and camps in Poreč. And why not – when they have access to the best infrastructure, world-class accommodation and a comfortable climate. Poreč often hosts international sporting events and tournaments, such as the recently-held Dance Star dance competition, the World Handball Championship, the Davis Cup, the European Archery Championships and the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, to name just a few.
Poreč offers tourists and amateur athletes looking for an active holiday an exceptionally wide selection of sporting facilities, hiking and cycling trails, sports halls and centres. At Plava Laguna’s resorts and hotels, our entertainers will help you loosen up with water aerobics, Pilates and other sports programmes. The only thing we don’t have is snow, but you can still ski – on the water!
If you're a passionate runner, don't miss out on the traditional Plava Laguna Half Marathon! With the popular Family and Kids Run, you're in for a lot of fun, surprises and rewards for entire families.
Plava Laguna Ironman 70.3 Poreč is a spectacle in itself: the beautiful Poreč area landscapes coupled with professional organisation and hospitality of Plava Laguna make Poreč an ideal sports destination.
The artificial turf football pitch at Zelena Resort has been awarded the FIFA QUALITY mark, which means it has been constructed and is maintained in accordance with the highest FIFA technical standards.
The Stella Maris Resort football pitch in Umag, as part of the sports infrastructure managed by Plava Laguna, has also been awarded the FIFA QUALITY PRO mark.
Apart from the excellent accommodation, climate and sports infrastructure, the FIFA certificate is yet another reason why professional football teams and clubs would choose Umag, Poreč and Plava Laguna as their training and competition venue.
