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 in countries 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

Sport Ireland and it's partners are working hard to create plans for European Week of Sport 2020 which will take place from 23rd- 30th September. There will be some changes this year given the ongoing worldwide pandemic, however sport and physical activity is more important now than ever before and we will celebrate it. 

All events and activities will be planned and developed in line with the most up to date public health guidelines and safety measures in place. 

More details will be announced in the coming weeks and months and we look forward to celebrating European Week of Sport in September.
