1992 Summer Olympics (basketball)
Palau Municipal d'Esports de Badalona, most frequently called the Pavelló Olímpic de Badalona is an arena in the Gorg area of Badalona, Catalonia, Spain. The arena holds 12,760 people, and it is primarily used for basketball, though it's also an habitual home for music concerts and other municipal events.
Built in 1991.
The arena hosted the basketball tournament of the 1992 Summer Olympics, the 1992 Olympic Basketball Tournament. It was designed by the architects Esteve Bonell and Francesc Rius, who won the 1992 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture for this building.
It's also the home arena of Joventut de Badalona, one of the most important professional basketball squads in Spain. Before the Pavelló Olímpic was built, the now 3,300 capacity Pavelló Club Joventut Badalona hosted the city basketball games and most of the other indoor sports.
