European Week of Sport - Sportsfest

European Week of Sport

European Week of Sport is celebrated across Europe from 23rd-30th September


European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe.

The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, the aim is to inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more.

Being Active doesn’t mean having to be part of a sports club, a gym, running marathons or cycling across Europe. Being Active can be running around playing with your children, grabbing a walk with work colleagues on your lunch break, going outside and exploring the great outdoors - whatever gets you moving to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Being Active leads to:

  • Increased health benefits
  • Better mental health
  • Feeling great
  • Confidence
  • Increase in productivity
