EXPRESSION OF INTEREST IN HOSTING EUROGAMES 2021
Pan Idræt Copenhagen, national Danish Sports Club of the Year 2015, intends to bid to host Eurogames in 2021.
We are highly experienced in Pan Idræt and have excellent, long-established relationships with key Danish sports federations. The city council already supports us in our desire to bid, and is funding the process with several hundred thousand euro in the coming years.
We have an excellent partnership with the Danish Sports and Gymnastics Association, which has provided office space, project support and advice.
We have previously hosted EuroGames in 2003 and World OutGames in 2009. Both events received wide praise and were financially sound. In addition to numerous single sport tournaments over the years we also held Pan Games in 2014 to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
In the spring of 2015 we established a joint non-profit project-organisation with Copenhagen Pride, called Happy Copenhagen, which is professionally staffed through funding from The City of Copenhagen and The Capital Region of Denmark.
In addition to our bid for EuroGames 2021, we are working closely with Copenhagen Pride,
who have already announced their intention to bid for World Pride 2021.
The board and members of Pan Idræt Copenhagen very much hope that we will be able to welcome the members of the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation to Copenhagen for the biggest and most successful EuroGames ever held.
