On June 22, "sports will take the streets of Madrid to support Madrid 2020," according to MARCA. Along with Marca's 75th anniversary, the newspaper, in collaboration with the Town Council and Community of Madrid, "will make sports reign for a night in the capital." The announcement of the event featured Madrid Mayor Ana Botella, Spanish Olympic Committee (COE) President Alejandro Blanco and Spanish Superior Sports Council (CSD) President Miguel Cardenal as masters of ceremony. Botella invited all Madrid citizens to join the celebration. Botella: "We are a city with wholehearted commitment to sports, which is without a doubt one of the hallmarks of our identity. We have demonstrated this in the last five years with the great success of Sports Day in previous editions" (MARCA, 6/3).
