The Anella Olimpica is advancing in its commitment to sustainability


The Governing Committee of the Barcelona City Council has approved the executive project to install photovoltaic panels on the roof of the Sant Jordi Club.

This installation, intended solely for self-consumption, will reduce the generation of greenhouse gases from all the facilities of the Anella Olímpica (Olympic Ring) and start the path towards energy self-sufficiency. It is also an important step in the commitment of Barcelona de Serveis Municipals (B:SM) to reduce CO2 generation in all its buildings. The photovoltaic installation to be located on the roof of the Sant Jordi Club consists of 896 photovoltaic modules with a power of 430 kW. It will occupy a total area of 2,300 m2 and will generate 655,000 kWh per year, equivalent to the annual consumption of 200 homes in the city.

The photovoltaic installation of the Sant Jordi Club has a budget of 610,000 euros and will be ready in less than a year.


A record-breaking Anella Olímpica



Anella Olímpica ((Olympic Ring) made up of the Estadi Olímpic, the Palau Sant Jordi and the Sant Jordi Club have programmed more than 140 events for 2023 that will attract 1,400,000 visitors, twice as many as this year.

It will be a record year for the Olympic Stadium, where there will be eight concerts by Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, Harry Styles and The Weekend.

Also during this season, the Olympic Stadium will host the games of the first team of Futbol Club Barcelona during the remodeling works of its facilities.


Estadi Olimpic's Incubator


The Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys is in the final stages of setting up the city's first incubator for sports and technology projects. The space will be able to host the first start-ups in the spring of 2023. The aim is to promote and support the creation of innovative companies in the field of sport, foster their growth and facilitate their positioning in the city's business fabric.

The Anella Olímpica offers a strategic environment linked to local, national and international relay sports. The companies installed in the incubator will be able to learn and coexist with the sporting events that take place in this privileged location.

They will also be able to use the Olympic Stadium facilities for studies, testing activities and sporting experiments, or to hold informative activities and presentations.

The Anella Olímpica recovers the figures of public before the pandemic


Between October and December'22 there are scheduled about 40 concerts at the Palau Sant Jordi and the Sant Jordi Club that will attract 235,000 people, three times more than last year and approaching the 2019 figures.

Before the end of the year, Joan Manel Serrat, Antonia Font, Rigoberta Bandini, Sopa de Cabra and the Back Street Boys, among many others, will be parading on the stages of the Olympic Ring.

So far this year, 420,000 people have enjoyed the 42 concerts held at the Olympic Ring, almost six times more than during the same period last year.

"The concert of the year"


On April 23rd, the Palau Sant Jordi was the setting for an unforgettable night. The star of the show: C Tangana. The scenery: a luxurious tavern worthy of a film, with a band, a flamenco stage, and some top-notch vocalists and guests: Rita Payés, La Húngara, the Carmona family, El Niño de Elche, Jorge Drexler, Kiko Veneno and Estopa, among others. Giant screens relayed with excellent definition everything that was happening on stage, which was no small thing. And so, in between drinks, "El Madrileño" presented almost 30 songs from his tour "Sin cantar, ni afinar", to an audience enraptured by the atmosphere, who sang along to all the songs in the repertoire, blending their voices with those of the artist.

18,360 people saw live what the media described as "the concert of the year". A record attendance that has been possible thanks to the investments made in the Olympic Ring over the last two years, including the increase in the capacity of the Palau Sant Jordi, making it the largest indoor venue in the country, with a capacity of 18,411 spectators.



Since last Sunday, March 27th, the Palau Sant Jordi has joined the initiative adopted by other spaces of the City in solidarity with Ukraine and will display the yellow and blue colors of the Ukrainian flag on its exterior lighting.

The Palau Sant Jordi unveils its new lighting

425 metres of LED strips and 44 projectors are part of the new look that the Palau Sant Jordi has unveiled this February. A venue that continues to offer a modern look, 30 years after its first opening.

It is an aesthetic and environmental improvement that allows considerable savings thanks to the replacement of old halogen projectors with RGB LED ones.

It now looks even more spectacular.

Palau Sant Jordi: 30 years

The Palau Sant Jordi was born determined to defy the "elements". It was not long before the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games, but in March of that year, the venue was "flooded" with a sea to host the 1st Indoor Windsurfing Competition.

That was the first of other floods that came with the World Swimming Championships in 2003 and 2013. But we also saw the arrival of the snow under the dome of the venue, in 1993 with the I Ski Indoor and in 2011 with the World Snowboarding Championships, the ice with the Disney shows, and the earthen tones on the floor with the Supercroos Indoor or Dirt Track.

Did you know that?

The Palau Sant Jordi and the Olympic Stadium, with its variety of venues, attract the attention of television, cinema and brands, who find in these facilities the ideal setting for interviews, film and commercial shoots and publicity photographs.

Scenes from the film "Red Lights" starring Robert de Niro and Sigourney Weaver, the iconic advertisement for a Paco Rabanne cologne, the set of one of the episodes of "L'ofici de viure", among many others, are part of the numerous productions that have taken place in our venues.

Did you know that?

The Trial Indoor Barcelona is the event that has been held the most times at the Palau Sant Jordi.  The first time was in 1991 and since then it has only been cancelled once (in 2020 due to the pandemic). A total of 29 editions for the most veteran event of the Championship of the World Trial Championship.

And did you know who is the artist who has visited us the most times? The Italian Eros Ramazzotti tops the ranking of singers who have performed the most often at the Palau Sant Jordi. He has done so in 10 occasions.
