Salzburg 2019: Join the European Company Sport Games
Salzburg, Austria, will host the 22nd European Company Sport Games sixteen years after hosting them in 2003.
The pretty town of Salzburg will welcome over 6,000 participants this summer for a week of sport competition and friendshipness.
Austria and Salzburg
Tens of thousands of visitors are attracted to our beautiful city of
Salzburg for two main reasons:
- The first is the baroque centre, nestled in breathtaking surroundings
at the edge of the Alps. It’s no coincidence that Salzburg has been called the “Rome of the North”.
- The second reason is that Salzburg is a hotspot of classical music,
thanks to the world’s most gifted and famous composer, W.A. Mozart,
who was born and raised here.
Austria has been an important partner of EFCS for many years and looks back on a long tradition of company sport. For this reason, we are certain that our friends in Salzburg will again organise an outstanding event. Didier Besseyre, President of the EFCS
What to expect from the 22nd European Company Sport Games
Salzburg and the Austrian Federation for Company Sport are no strangers to major events and the values of the European Federation for Company Sport.
For this edition, participants will find a selection of 27 sports and 2 paralympic sports to include everyone.
Salzburg has guaranteed Games with “short transfer times” and will follow through on its promise. Most of the sport venues are either in the city or in one of its neighbouring villages and towns. This allows the shortest possible transfer times to the competitions.
The Rif University and Provincial Sport Centre in the south of the city will be one of the important hotspots of the Games. It will host the track and field events and swimming competitions, as well as shooting and ball sport contests.
Company sport has a long tradition in Austria and plays a large role in workplace health promotion. We are looking forward to the Games in Salzburg in 2019 and to watching thecompanies compete against one another. Karlheinz Kopf, Austrian Federation for Company Sport, President
