We have 12 world-class venues that will be hosting each of the sports across Berlin and Glasgow. The European Championships wants to showcase a city's existing sports facilities – making for an attractive and affordable event that can be considered good value from a host's perspective.
For the first edition in 2018, athletics will be held in Berlin at the iconic Olympic Stadium. The other six sports will be held in Glasgow. Both cities see the benefits of an innovative, cost-efficient multi-sport concept – one that helps them deliver on their long-term commitment to produce strong economic benefits, along with sporting, cultural and social legacy, by bringing new audiences to their cities and countries.
The event is a perfect example of how to build a legacy impact after the wonderful IAAF World Championships in 2009 and Commonwealth Games in 2014, with many of the sporting facilities being re-used in 2018.
