Apart from the Opening ceremony and the Players Party, the centrepiece of the World Sports Festival is the athletic competition. Ultimately the reason hundreds of young athletes come together in Vienna every year is to compete in their sport.
It is unusual to have international tournaments with teams from Zimbabwe, the US or Australia. It is exactly this international flair which attracts sports clubs to come to Vienna every year.
Except for American Football (Thursday) all tournaments begin on Friday morning and last until Sunday noon. You will receive your schedules and start times in good time in Players Town. A more detailed schedule for your discipline will be posted on this website under the respective sports section closer to the time.
