Mayor's message

Academy Maia & Brenha Sports Association

 The AMB Volleyball Cup is one of the major events that marks and defines the national sports calendar and an international reference for mobilizing around a sport and involving all ages.

The origins and implementation of an event of this magnitude in our municipality must be and are a source of pride for Espinho and for all Espinhenses. More than just a sporting event, the AMB Volleyball Cup assumed a very important part of our identity and established itself as the maximum exponent of an entire community with a strong tradition in volleyball.

The commitment and dedication that Miguel Maia and João Brenha, two living legends of international volleyball and Espinho figures of unquestionable national reference, and all those involved in this great project put in the AMB Volleyball Cup are reflected in the passion for the sport that gives this event a special mystique that animates, rejoices and fills Espinho with incredible energy.
The sustained and organic way in which this event has been growing and multiplying itself in increasingly comprehensive activities gives us the certainty of being able to count on a solid, competent structure capable of continuing to elevate the AMB Volleyball Cup and the sport. to new levels of excellence.

For all these reasons, the Municipality of Espinho will always be at the side of the AMB Volleyball Cup to support, value and promote this sporting event that Espinho projects in the country and in the world and the 2022 edition will certainly be another example of excellence and success.

Miguel Reis – Mayor of Espinho
