Sportyga is a platform for accommodation exchange among families with athletes. We connect families with similar interests and assist entities such as clubs, companies, associations, and municipalities in promoting their events. These exchanges take place in Europe, the United States, and Canada, allowing participants to join sports camps, races, tournaments, or fulfill their dream of visiting a specific club, all while improving their language skills.

Sportyga is comprised of a team of professionals in the field, led by Ignacio Gómez-Acebo Díez, CEO of Sportyga. Born in 1983 in Santander, Spain, Ignacio is the youngest of three brothers: "As children, we spent summers with host families in Ireland, England, France, the United States, or Canada, learning languages and experiencing their cultures," he recalls. During those summers, he enjoyed playing football, basketball, or any other sport while enhancing his language skills. These experiences led him to forge friendships, travel, develop a passion for sports, learn from their values, and even seize professional opportunities.

This is how Sportyga was born, with the aim of assisting and connecting young people interested in the same sport with host families through sports event organizing entities.
