“We naturally focused on 2021, but the title for 2022 is also fantastic news”, alderman Baldewsingh said during an interview with DenHaagFM radio station last week. “I see the title as a reward for the efforts of everyone in The Hague who dedicate themselves daily for sport. I am convinced that the title will put The Hague even more on the map as the international sports city by the sea and we will continue to motivate Hagenaars and Hagenezen further to move and stay in motion. “
