Nine European Championships 'under one roof'

The European Championships Munich 2022 will be the biggest sports event in Germany since the 1972 Summer Olympics. 

From 11 to 21 August 2022, European sport will be united as its best athletes compete for the highest accolade of their sport on the continent – the title of ‘European Champion’. The second edition of the European Championships will feature nine Olympic sports: Athletics, Beach Volleyball, Canoe Sprint, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing, Sport Climbing, Table Tennis, and Triathlon

Along with the Olympiapark at the heart of the event, the entire city will dress up for a glorious and unforgettable spectacle of sport and culture – a fitting way to celebrate a golden jubilee.


The original vision of the multi-sport European Championships – to create a must-watch, must-attend event that elevates the Champions of Europe – remains unchanged for the second edition of the event.


Back to the Roofs

Slogan and key visual revealed

Munich 2022 is an innovative return to the roots of the 1972 Olympic Games. A reminiscence of hospitality, happiness, and community, but also of the victims of the attack on the Israeli Olympic team. The event also stands for a return to a unique and historic location. A return to the legendary architecture of the Olympiapark with its world-famous tent roof structure, which once transformed Munich, a village of a million, into an international sports metropolis overnight. 

This coming home is described by the slogan of the European Championships 2022. "Back to the Roofs" is more than a call to come back to the Olympiapark, it is a promise to embrace the legacy of the 1972 Olympic Games and to interpret it in a modern and new way.



Munich 2022 promises plenty of action and suspense: On each of the eleven event days, athletes will be competing for the highest step on the podium. A total of 177 gold medals in nine sports will be at stake - a packed programme with something in store for every fan. 


The first medals of the European Athletics Championships will be handed out in the marathon on 15 August 2022. The setting in the heart of the city could not be any more spectacular. The course will take the runners past Munich's most beautiful landmarks. Following the start of the elite, young and old will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the stars and tackle the original course themselves: Registration for the Run of 22 and Kids Run of 22 is now open.
