Move for Solidarity Day in Olympiapark on 24 April

Published on 20 April 2022

With the European Championships Munich 2022, the Bavarian capital will welcome the biggest sporting event since the 1972 Olympic Games in August - more than a worthy event in the golden jubilee year of the Olympiapark. Munich 2022 stands for incomparable moments and aims to inspire, set new standards, and leave a lasting legacy for all participants, the City of Munich and future sporting events.

In view of the current events, we as the Local Organising Committee of the European Championships see it as our responsibility to use the power of sport to show solidarity TOGETHER. Therefore, we are organising the "Move for Solidarity Day" in Munich's Olympiapark on 24 April 2022 in cooperation with the Munich Sports Youth, the BLSV and the City of Munich. This sports festival is aimed specifically at children and young people both from Ukraine and from other areas who have arrived in Munich. But of course, we also welcome ALL Munich children, youth and interested people. On site, about 25 clubs, associations and other organisations will offer a sports programme to participate in and inform about their integrative sports offers. In addition, there will be a benefit concert at which various musicians will perform.

There will be a wide range of sporting activities on offer: on the peninsula in Olympiapark, classic ball sports such as football, basketball, and beach volleyball, as well as cycling and tennis can be tried out. On the other hand, children and young people can try out trend sports such as roundnet, inline skating and crossminton, as well as juggling and unicycling. Judo, skateboarding, vaulting, and dancing as well as other sports can also be tried out on this day. The bands Color Comic, JM'First, Dichter, Affenbande and Группа Кощей - a pop-rock-reggae group from Kharkiv - will provide the musical background. 

To sweeten the day, there will be a muffin bar on a donation basis or free for refugees. We welcome everyone who can support with muffins or other pastries. We are also collecting donations of goods and money together with “Help Ukraine”. We will gladly accept donations of sports equipment and plush toys during the action day on 24 April. Donations of goods can also be handed in or sent to us at any time before the event (LOC European Championships Munich 2022, Spiridon-Louis-Ring 22, 80809 Munich). Please donate plush toys only new or washed. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Move for Solidarity Team of the European Championships Munich 2022 at countandlast@munich2022.com.  

Let's use the power of sport together! We look forward to seeing you!
