Matosinhos Sports and Congress Center

The Sports and Congress Center has been playing an important sporting, social and cultural role in the support provided to the most diverse institutions in terms of the Sports and Cultural Show.

It presents itself as a multifaceted equipment that constitutes a natural space for carrying out training actions, product presentations, summits, concerts, conferences, congresses, colloquia, rallies, meetings, sporting events, exhibitions, dinners, gala receptions, seminars , symposia, workshops and other demanding challenges posed by the social, cultural and business fabric.

Its size, unique architecture, ease of access as well as proximity to means of transport (metro, airport and port of Leixões) and structuring roadways, are great attributes that position it as a unique facility in the Municipality of Matosinhos and Greater Porto. for the realization of various events at national and international level.

The construction of this equipment resulted from the need to provide the municipality of Matosinhos with a sports structure geared towards high competition in an indoor arena. Thus, it emerged as a complement and corollary of the municipal sports spaces existing at the time: open sports facilities and sports pavilions.

It should be noted that the Sports and Congress Centre, whose space is especially endowed with characteristics of versatility, allows not only the holding of sporting events, but also a wide range of cultural and leisure activities.
