Spain is the only country in the EU that has so far included the sport sector in its subsidies for the recovery from Covid-19, according to the chairman of the country’s Upper Council on Sport (CSD), José Manuel Franco. The claim could not be verified at the time of going to press, and in any case, not every member country of the EU has submitted its own plan until now. Franco reportedly stated that Spain views sport as an investment. He made the statement while commenting on the CSD’s support for the European Week of Sport, an annual campaign devised by the EU to urge exercise and a proper diet on the population. This year’s edition, the fifth, will take place on Sept. 23-30. It has a hashtag, #BeActive, as well as a Spotify playlist, communications handbook, press kit and more, all available online.
