European City of Sport 2018
In 2018, Umag won the title of European City of Sport. This very fact shows how much of a tradition and a vital, ever-growing part of Umag’s life sport has become.
Umag lives for sport, sport lives in Umag
If you ask someone who lives in Croatia what their first association is with Umag, they’ll probably say the ATP Croatia Open tournament, which has been held for nearly 30 years at Stella Maris Resort tennis centre. International names in tennis have played matches on the courts here, and scenes from the unique, shell-shaped stadium have been broadcast round the world.
Umag is a town of tennis. If you love the sport, you will hardly find a better place to practice your forehand. But it’s not all about tennis. Umag and its residents simply love sports and active lifestyles. Football, handball, hall sports, water sports, running, cycling... The infrastructure is here, as is experience and tradition in hosting national and club teams. Tournaments, sporting events and gatherings take place all year round, all accompanied by world-class accommodation in beautiful locations.
