There are now just 100 days to go until the start of the multisport European Championships Munich 2022 (Germany) and local organizers rang in the final countdown on May 3rd with a spectacular tent roof projection of some of the star athletes set to compete this Summer.

The ‘DorsetEcho’ stated that in keeping with the event slogan ‘Back to the Roofs’, elite European sport is returning to the legendary tent roofs of the Olympiapark in Munich this Summer – on the 50th anniversary of the Olympic Games in the German City.

The 2022 European Championships will be the second edition of the European Championships, set to be held from August 11th to August 21st in Munich, Germany. Athletics, cycling and triathlon, artistic gymnastics and rowing return from appearing in the inaugural Championships in 2018.

Paul Bristow, Co-Founder and CEO, European Championships, UK, is a Member of Coliseum – Global Sports Venue Alliance.

The 69,250-capacity Olympiastadion is a stadium located in Munich, Germany. Situated at the heart of the Olympiapark München in Northern Munich, the stadium was built as the main venue for the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Marion Schöne, the head honcho of Olympiapark München GmbH, stated in a LinkedIn post, “Last night (May 3rd) we had a spectacular light installation on our world famous tent roof with many wonderful pictures of our athletes and today it is exactly 100 days until the first competitions on August 11th, 2022 of the European Championships Munich 2022 will take place in the #Olympic-Park Munich.”

The ‘DorsetEcho’ further stated that the European Championships 2022, taking place from August 11th-21st, 2022, will once again bring together the existing championships of some of the continent’s leading sports into one multisport event to create a must-watch, must-attend experience that elevates the Champions of Europe.

Top British athletes will be among the 4,700 competing in 177 medal events across nine sports (athletics, beach volleyball, canoe sprint, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, sport climbing, table tennis, triathlon) at the Olympic Park and in the City of Munich – and will be hoping to improve on their second-place finish in the overall medal table at the inaugural Glasgow/Berlin European Championships in 2018.

A European Championships spokesperson said, “The multisport European Championships in Munich this Summer will see 11 days full of action-packed finals and gold-medal moments that will feature Britain’s brightest stars. Munich 2022 will be an amazing experience for ticket holders and viewers at home. Fans will be able to follow their favorite athletes across the nine Olympic sports from morning till night as they strive for European glory.”

There will be live coverage of the European Championships Munich 2022 this Summer on BBC.

At a presser held in Munich to mark 100 days to go, Marion Schöne said, “With the relaxation of several coronavirus-related rules, we are finally looking forward to a lot of events in the Olympiapark again. We especially hope that the interest in the European Championships will get a significant boost in the last 100 days. Of course, it is not easy to prepare such a major event during the pandemic, so we are all the more relieved that the nine European Championships can take place for spectators without restrictions.”

Olympiapark München GmbH expects around one million visitors at the event, along road race routes, and to attend ‘The Roofs’ Festival on the sidelines of the championships.

Added Schöne, “For us, the European Championships are the highlight of the Olympiapark’s anniversary year. We can now look forward to the events of the Summer with confidence and we can clearly see that people want to experience something again. The joy of the fans is growing, they finally want to be there live at such a top-class sporting event without any worries and enjoy the unique flair in the Olympic Park. Especially at the European Championships, in addition to the many free opportunities to experience sporting events, there are also many very cheap tickets so that the whole family can cheer on the athletes in the halls or stadiums!”

Germany’s Malaika Mihambo, the reigning European, World and Olympic long jump champion, looking forward to the event this Summer, said, “The home European Championships in Munich are very important to me because the support here is exceptional and the atmosphere is even more motivating. The flair of the multisport event makes the European Championships even bigger and more spectacular. There is something for everyone – from fans to athletes and everyone has the opportunity to get to know and love new sports.”
