European Week of Sport

Event date
September 23-30, 2022
Short description

From 23 to 30 September, the annual European Week of Sport will yet again promote sport and physical activity across Europe. The Week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it will inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more.


The European Week of Sport was launched in 2015 to respond to the growing crisis of inactivity. Sport and physical activity makes a significant contribution to the well-being of European citizens.

Unfortunately, the level of physical activity is stagnating and even declining in some countries.

No matter who we are and what we do, even slight increases in regular, physical activity can have a profound impact on our long-term health.

The Week exists to improve awareness of the importance an active lifestyle has for everyone.

The European Week of Sport is designed to give people around Europe and across the world a springboard into being active.
