Barcelona is an active place, with one quarter of residents participating in sports of one kind or another. From tennis, sailing and golf to hiking, biking, skiing and snowboarding there's no shortage of opportunity to get out and get active.
When it comes to pro sports, you'd be hard-pressed to find a Barcelonian who isn't a fan of the world-famous Barça football club. Then there's the Regal FC Barcelona, the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Barecelona Open, as well as the many regattas, marathons and other sporting events held here every year. The businesses, fans and bloggers who promote and follow these events can use .barcelona to brand their websites.
