Copenhagen EuroGames 2021 are coming!


EuroGames 2021 is an LGBT inclusive sporting event including 22 sports and will take place from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 August in Copenhagen and Malmö (Denmark). Over 6,000 athletes are expected to participate.

Eurogames is an European multi sport event governed by the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF). Last edition was in Rome (Italy) in 2019, because the 2020 edition in Dusseldorf (Germany) was cancelled due the Covid-19.

The 2021 sports programme is created to be as inclusive as possible, where all athletes will be able to compete in safe and secure surroundings and where they can make new friends and memories as they break a sweat on the court and give their all during the match.

The sports included are:

  • Artistic Swimming
  • Badminton
  • Ballroom Dancing
  • Beach Volley
  • Bowling
  • Chess
  • Dodgeball
  • Field Hockey
  • Figure Skating
  • Floorball
  • Football
  • Golf
  • Half Marathon
  • Handball
  • Running, 5K + 10K
  • Squash
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Track & Field
  • Triathlon
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo

For the first time during EuroGames, they will host a conference for 200 sports leaders. The Sports Leader Conference will take place Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 August 2021 and has two key purposes: to empower LGBT sports clubs in Europe and to foster more inclusivity in the athletic community. 

There will also be a public programme, Sports to the People, which includes a number of drop-in sports for all the people living and visiting EuroGames 2021. These could for example include Drag Olympics, Rainbow family sports, Roller-skating through the city, Bicycle workshops, Skiing on the Copenhagen ski slope and many more fun sports events. These popular sporting events will take place in several squares, parks and venues across Copenhagen and they will be held throughout the week of EuroGames 2021.
