See what makes Oslo the perfect pick for your next sporting event.

We offer you:




An experienced host city

Oslo has a long history of hosting large sporting events, and is the only capital in the world that has held a Winter Olympics (1952). The international summer athletics event ExxonMobil Bislett Games has been an annual highlight here since 1965.



An enthusiastic local audience

Friendly competition is deeply embedded in the Norwegian DNA, and the people of Oslo love their sports. Few things mobilise the Oslopolitans more than large sporting events in their hometown, and athletes will be greeted by an enthusiastic local audience – all year round.



Great outoor and indoor facilities

Oslo's vast forest areas and fjordside location provide perfect locations for outdoor events of many kinds, and several state of the art arenas are available for indoor events.



A compact, safe and exciting environment

Oslo is a compact city, and distances between the arenas and other parts of city life are short. Delegates and spectactors will arrive in a host city that is safe and easy to get around in, with a lot to offer outside the stadiums.



Oslo Visitors and Convention Bureau provides free information on Oslo as a venue for sporting events. Get in touch to learn more about the possibilities of hosting your sporting event in Oslo.
