Back to the Roofs

Olympic Park Munich

The European Championships Munich 2022 will be the biggest sports event in Germany since the 1972 Summer Olympics. From 11-21 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.

Concentrated top-class sport under one roof, right in the heart of the city, characterized by a carefree atmosphere - this is the recipe for success for a unique experience that will be remembered. Then as now. This is also the vision of the organizers of the European Championships Munich 2022: 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 Olympic Park with its world-famous tent roof structure, which once transformed Munich, a village of a million, into an international sports metropolis overnight.

This return describes the guiding idea of the European Championships 2022. "Back to the Roofs" is more than a call to come back to the Olympic Park. It is a promise not only to take up the legacy of the 1972 Summer Olympics, but to implement it in a modern way, creating a multi-sport event that sets new standards and serves as a model for future events.

With "Back to the Roofs" an unmistakable message was developed. An idea that connects. That makes the essential elements of the vision and values visible and invites people to become part of this event. Moreover, "Back to the Roofs" proves the sustainability of the Olympic Park and the other Olympic sports venues and invites the current generation to continue the legacy.
