EuroGames Ceremonies

EuroGames at Copenhagen 2021 is going to be the most inclusive sporting event ever. It’s a four-day event that will officially kick off with the Opening Ceremony and end with the Closing Ceremony described below.

Together we will celebrate EuroGames with fantastic parades and shows representing inclusivity, diversity and sports. You do not want to miss out on these experiences.

EuroGames Opening Ceremony

  • Wednesday 18 August 2021
  • Starting at 2000
  • Sports Village to Rainbow Square

First, we welcome all athletes in Sports Village at Islands Brygge located right next to the water. Here all athletes will get ready for the parade of nations while having a cold drink and catching up with friends.

The parade of nations will walk through the streets of Copenhagen. It will be in beautiful surroundings and all athletes will feel the support from spectators along the route. The distance measures one mile and we call it the proudest mile in the world.

The parade of nations ends at Rainbow Square in Copenhagen.

Due to COVID19 restrictions, participants in the Proud Mile will be divided into groups of up to 500 people. The Opening Ceremony itself has been moved to an indoor venue. All registered athletes will be invited to attend.

Guests with tickets can then travel on to the venue for the Opening Ceremony. The Ceremony will be streamed live to our social media channels.

The Closing Ceremony is going to be an important moment as this is where we hand over the EuroGames baton to the hosting city of 2022 Nijmegen.

Due to COVID19 restrictions, the format and venue for the Closing Ceremony is being revised. Further information will be published as soon as possible.
