The European City of Sport for 2020 - is to be Milton Keynes.
MK's to be one of around a 16 cities of sport to recognise the authority's awareness of grass-root sport and promoting various sporting opportunties to residents.
The European Capital of Sport next year will be Malaga.
Following the visit of the ACES Europe Evaluation to the city of Milton Keynes Committee 2 weeks ago, the local authority received the recognition of the European city of sport 2020.
ACES Europe’s evaluation was also based on Milton Keynes’ bid file that explained how the Council will work closely with our local partners, businesses, national and international organisations to raise awareness of grassroots sport and activities, and bring more opportunity to the city where the need is greatest.
We congratulate the local authority for its recognition and we warmly wish them to have a year full of memorable sport events, a year that will be the start of a successful long-term sport policy.
