European Week of Sport

23 September, 2021 (All day) to 30 September, 2021 (All day)

The first ever European Week of Sport took place in September 2015 with the official opening taking place in Brussels. From 2017, the Week is celebrated between September 23-30 all across Europe.

The European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity across Europe at national, regional and local levels. EU Member States and partner countries are taking part having a range of activities and events taking place across Europe promoting themes that appeal to all and encourage people to #BeActive.

Starting from 2017, the dates of EWOS have been unified and the European Week of Sport is taking place between September 23 and 30.

The Week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grass roots initiatives, its purpose is to inspire Europeans to #BeActive more regularly and to exercise more throughout the year, but especially within the period of the campaign. The European Week of Sport was structured around four Focus Days: Education, Environment, Workplace, Outdoors, Sport Clubs & Fitness centres.
