Formentera Sports Gala returns 5 November

The Formentera Office of Sports is pleased to announce that the Formentera Sports Gala will be held this year. The event, plans for which had been scuppered by the pandemic, returns Saturday 5 November at 6.00pm in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

Paula Ferrer, councillor of sports, described a revival of the tribute to the island's athletes, clubs, volunteers, sponsors and sports-lovers as "unfinished business". Ferrer insisted, "Besides recognising our athletes' achievements, this gala is about trumpeting sport as a nexus of union and social inclusion".

Honourees will include Best Model of Sportsmanlike Values, Most Promising Male and Female Athletes, Best Male and Female Athletes, Best Male and Female Teams and Best Coach, as well as best athlete in each local sport. Special mentions will also go the sponsoring entity that has most distinguished itself in promoting sport on the island, the most distinguished club or sporting association and the most prominent individual exponent of sport. Distinctions are based on the 2020/2021 season.

Formentera's sports clubs and associations proposed the nominations together with a panel comprising Councillor Ferrer, the municipal clerk, a Formentera Office of Sports manager, club representatives and a member of each political party with plenary representation on the Consell de Formentera.

Winners will receive a work of art by Silvia Jovani, a ceramics artist who worked for several years on the island and led the Consell's ceramics workshop.
