A multisports facility will open on Friday, January 30, in Ávila, Spain, and it will be named Carlos Sastre. Sastre will be present for the ceremony, which will include demonstrations of several sports, including a friendly basketball game.
The facility will open for the public on February 14. There is space for almost 1,400 spectators and the main field of almost 2,000 square metres can be divided into three distinct smaller fields with automatic dividers.
Sastre was satisfied with the new sports place. "This will give the youth the opportunity to do sports." He was thankful for the help of the authorities and that "they have given my name to the facility. It is a great honour for me."
