Vic was chosen as one of the three subsites where the roller hockey matches for the Olympic Games were held, along with Reus and Sant Sadurní.

The Club Patí Vic Pavilion, which was remodeled to improve the locker room and to expand capacity up to 2.000 spectators was used for these competitions. The new track was also paved.

Vic is 70 km from Barcelona and is set on the remains of Ausa pre-Roman nucleus, which was conquered by the Romans. During the Middle Ages the town grew around the bishopric and castle of Vic. Trade has thrived in this city for centuries and, with the emergence of labor unions, during the eighteenth century the city suffered a major population increase and the cotton, construction and footwear industries were created. The city preserves important landmark buildings like the Cathedral, the City Hall, the bishop’s palace and the buildings around the Market Square.
