Swedish Championships Week

January 14 to 19, we bring champions together in Umeå. Umeå starts off the Capital of Culture year by hosting the Swedish Championships Week – one of Sweden’s biggest sports events.

The purpose of the Swedish Championships Week is to host Swedish championships in many different sports, in one single city. The Swedish Championships Week is carried through every year, winter as summer, in different cities of Sweden. 2014 is a record breaking week, as the Swedish Championships Week will be the biggest winter week this far, with competition in 20 different sports. Among others, Swedish Championships will be held according to tradition in cross-country skiing, where you get the chance to see our world class skiers trying to get ready for the Sochi Olympics. You will also be able to see winter sports such as curling, sleddog sports, ski orienteering, ski mountaineering and luge. Along with these events, there will also be indoor sports like thai boxing, wheelchair floorball, powerlifting, jiu jitsu and dancing. And also motor sports such as rally, rallycross, snowmobile racing, x-trail and ice racing.

Make sure you get the chance to experience one of the biggest sporting events in close up – meet the champions, see the dazzling competition and discover the sports city of Umeå.
