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 Olympic Park. 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, the local organising committee of the European Championships would like to use the power of sport to show solidarity TOGETHER. To this end, the LOC in cooperation with the Munich Sports Youth, the BLSV and the City of Munich are organising the "Move For Solidarity Day" in the Olympic Park on 24 April 2022. 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 ALL Munich children, young people and interested people are also welcome. 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.
The sports programme is wide-ranging: on the peninsula in the Olympic Park, classic ball sports such as football, basketball, cycling, tennis or beach volleyball 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. LOC welcomes all who can support with muffins or other pastries. In addition, donations in kind and money will be collected together with "Help Ukraine". Donations of sports equipment and cuddly toys will also be gladly accepted during the action day on 24 April.
