Dear RUHR GAMES friends!


The Corona pandemic is already shaking up the second festival summer. We too have been working on concepts for months and have really looked at all the options. But as much as we would have loved to celebrate Europe's biggest sports festival with you again, unfortunately we won't be able to have any spectators on site at the RUHR GAMES this June either.
This means that the popular workshops and open tournaments as well as the big headliner concerts will have to be cancelled. Nevertheless, the RUHR GAMES are the platform for Europe's best youth athletes and the urban culture of their generation - this year with a special digital edition. We will bring you the competitive sports highlights -
including the first European Championship in BMX Flatland and the German Championships in Climbing, Beach Volleyball and Sports Acrobatics - combined with urban art and music actions live on your screens! 4 days, 18 streams, 240 competitions: RUHR GAMES LIVE on sportdeutschland.tv and on ARD and ZDF (climbing). Be there when the Olympians of tomorrow fight for their medals!
