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 and Copenhagen City Hall 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 Copenhagen City Hall Square, where we welcome all athletes on stage representing their nation. The show will continue with festive music and entertainment.
The Proud Mile
