ABOUT.
Welcome to the European Games, a distinguished multi-sport event that represents the zenith of athletic competition and continental unity. Owned, orchestrated, and overseen by the European Olympic Committee, each sporting discipline within the Games is managed and supervised by its respective European sports Confederation. With a rich history rooted in tradition, the European Games gather the top athletes from across Europe every four years to showcase their talents on a grand scale. Beyond mere competition, the Games serve as a celebration of diversity, inclusivity, and cultural exchange, fostering mutual understanding and cooperation among nations.
