Aarhus is Denmarks Number One for Sporting Events

The long-standing, carefully targeted efforts by Sport Aarhus Events and the City of Aarhus to attract international sports events to Aarhus have been a great success. Sports federations in Denmark and abroad are choosing Aarhus as their venue for a large number of international sports events.

Sport Aarhus Events wants to strengthen its international network

Sport Aarhus Events aims to attract sporting events to Aarhus, and the association thus has an extensive network in the national and international world of sports.
This is one of the reasons why Aarhus has successfully hosted a number of sporting events with participants from both Denmark and abroad.
It takes a lot of hard and dedicated work to attract major sporting events to Aarhus, and Sport Aarhus Events therefore regularly participates in international sports conferences with the very purpose of extending and maintaining the existing network of contacts to ensure that Aarhus will host new sporting events in future.
