The football pitches in Medulin, located next to the Hotel Park Plaza Belvedere, have attracted a number of football clubs since 1970. The clubs use this unique sports centre for their training and preparation for matches.

The players who choose Medulin for their training will find six FIFA size grass football pitches here next to the Hotel Park Plaza Belvedere. In addition, Medulin also offers two artificial grass pitches, which means that players can use a total of eight pitches for training and preparation for competitions.

The football pitches are available exclusively to teams staying in Medulin during their preparations. The other facilities and services available at the Hotel Park Plaza Belvedere are also adapted to the needs of sportsmen, who will find here two heated indoor seawater pools and a wellness centre covering an area of 1,500 square metres. Sportsmen can also use the fitness studio and benefit from the special menu. The fitness studio is equipped with Technogym machines, and the modern gym includes platforms for Olympic weightlifting, a variety of dumbbells and Olympic bars, plyometric boxes, wall bars, and various benches.

On request, matches with other clubs staying on the Medulin Riviera can be organised for teams staying in Medulin for their preparations.
