Vilnius brings exciting events to its UNESCO-listed Old Town and invites everyone to run wild, play and embrace beach sports right in the city centre. This, combined with world-class organisational skills, makes Vilnius an exceptional host for all kinds of events.
On 15-19 June, Vilnius will play host to the Billie Jean King Cup on an indoor hard court where a tennis “bubble” will be in place to ensure the safety of over 400 participants from 23 countries. The calendar of sporting events will also include this year’s Eastern European (EEVZA) U-18 and U-19 Beach Volleyball Championship, the European Youth Orienteering Championship and the FIFA Futsal World Cup, starting on 12 September and lasting for three weeks.
“We are very pleased that such a wide variety of high-profile sporting events have chosen Vilnius as a host and we look forward to welcoming athletes from around the globe to our city. These events will help bolster Vilnius’ position as a perfect destination for high-level international sporting events,” says Inga Romanovskienė, Head of Go Vilnius, the city’s official development agency.
Along with the championships, Vilnius is gearing up to have these events create long-lasting effects and increase awareness of various sports, making it easier and more affordable for people to stay healthy and active.
