Take our sport to your city and your city to our sport!

European Athletics has currently a programme of 10 different sporting events (Championships and Cups) and 2 corporate events (Congress and Convention) that represent 39 single events over a period of 4 years, all available for cities and national Member Federations to host.

From a European Athletics Championships with a full programme of stadium and out of stadium disciplines to the smaller scale specific disciplines’ events or from an Indoor to a Cross Country Championships, the offer is wide for cities to select an international athletics event to host as more adequate to their goals, dimension and resources.

Event bidding is the first stage for bringing one of the European Athletics’ events to a city in any of our Member Federations’ countries and our manual “From Bidding to Hosting” provides you with further information on the overall process how to become a host for a European Athletics Event.

We are pleased to introduce here the European Athletics Events portfolio at a glance but our team can guide you to  evaluate  the  most  adequate  type  of  event  for  your  City  and  Member  Federation.  For  further  details  please contact us at:bidding@european-athletics.org

EUROPEAN ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Our flagship event the European Athletics Championships are the showcase of elite athletics at its very best held every two years.

The European Athletics Championships on non-Olympic year are staged within a multi-sport event and therefore part of a separate bidding process. The edition staged in the Olympic year is organised every four years, runs over six days with over 1500 athletes from 51 Member Federations and brings great visibility to the  city  with  a  stadium  and  out  of  stadium  full  programme. 

To hold the qualification of a field event in an emblematic venue in the city and a mass participation race will make all  citizens to feel to be part of the Championships.
