On the 1st of February the Tampere 2023 Organising Committee gathered local media and stakeholders to present the unique mulit-sport festival that will take place this summer in the city of Tampere from 26 June – 9 July 2023.

Since the last event in 2019 in Italy, the world has changed going through the Covid – pandemic, and it has never been more evident an active lifestyle has both physical and mental health benefits. The IMGA promotes ‘Sport for life’ since 1985 by organising sport festivals all over the world in vibrant city destinations.

Finland’s population is ageing faster than anywhere else in the world except Japan. For the authorities it is of crucial importance to keep Finland’s older citizens physically and socially active, and they are implementing several initiatives to make this happen.

So this summer Tampere will be taken over by thousands of active adults who want to come and enjoy their sport, individually or in a team, and meet other mature athletes who choose to take action and have fun with like – minded people. All this to inspire adults to get off the couch and engage in physical or social activities.

Sports that will be on the program: Archery, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Beach Volley, Canoe/ Kayak, Cycling, Disc Golf, Football, Floorball, Futsal, Golf, Handball, Inline hockey, Judo, Karate, Orienteering, Padel, Petanque, Rowing, Shooting, Squash, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Triathlon, Volleyball, Weightlifting.

Whoever visits Tampere and the rest of Finland will surely not be disappointed by the beautiful lake scenery and outdoor lifestyle. Set yourself up to attain vibrant health and look forward to a fun time meeting other sports lovers from all over the world. Start planning your trip of a lifetime and enjoy a summer holiday in beautiful Finland !
