Indian football fans will soon have the opportunity to dive into the heart of Spain’s rich culture, breaking barriers and fostering unforgettable connections through football.

Tourism Office of Spanish Embassy, Turespaña, in collaboration with Spanish sports league LaLiga and Spanish institute Instituto Cervantes, held Exploring destination delights and the magic of football in Spain event yesterday in New Delhi that showcased the various attractions of Spain with football and beyond.

Advancing bilateral ties and bringing together Indian travel trade partners and Spanish delegates, the alliance seeked to get Indian fans closer to the richness of Spanish culture, beyond language barriers, to foster tourism connections through the immersive football fervour not very dissimilar between the two nations.
