WWMG 2020 HOSTS

WWMG 2020 HOSTS HOST CITY INNSBRUCK Innsbruck, nestling in the heart of the Austrian Alps, has a certain magic. Renowned as a tourist destination, the regional capital of Tyrol holds culture, tradition and sport in high esteem. This diverse air attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, who enjoy strolling its streets taking in the quaint old-town atmosphere and breathtaking mountain scenery. What makes the city unlike any other is its mixture of mountain and valley, nature and downtown. From the busy city centre it is just a 15-minute ride on a cable car up into the mountains at 1,905 metres above sea level. Popular attractions in Innsbruck include the Golden Roof, the Hofburg imperial palace and the City Tower, all of which can be found in the narrow streets of the medieval old town.

The host city Innsbruck has a long and proud history of welcoming top sporting events. It has hosted the Winter Olympics on two occasions and attracted numerous other world-class events in the decades since then. Surrounded by the Alps, the city offers a unique combination of urban lifestyle and alpine landscape which has always proven hugely popular with both competitors and spectators alike. After hosting the Winter Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976, the Universiade 2005, the 2012 Youth Olympic Games and the International Children’s Games in 2016, all eyes will once again turn to Innsbruck in early 2020 for the Winter World Masters Games.

SPORTS AND VENUES

VENUES Innsbruck, Seefeld and Tyrol are perfectly prepared to host this unique sports festival. Winter sports have always formed an integral part of the Tyrolean lifestyle. The towering snowcapped peaks of the Nordkette mountains high above Innsbruck provide a constant reminder that cities and nature can co-exist in harmony. The interplay between the large variety of sporting opportunities on the one hand and vibrant city life on the other make Innsbruck one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. All venues – except Kitzbühel – are within a 27 km radius of Innsbruck. All of them are in excellent condition and will provide the ideal setting for top-class performances and competitions. The venues used for the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics have undergone major modernisation and today continue to host international events on a regular basis. Olympiaworld Innsbruck is an historic location that has welcomed the Ice Hockey World Championships and the European Handball Championships as well as many international acts. During the WWMG 2020, Olympiaworld Innsbruck will serve as the main sport and organisation centre as well as venue for most of the ice-based sports. At Patscherkofel, just a 15-minute drive from the city centre, the alpine competitions will take place. In 2017 this three-time Olympic venue was extensively modernised, including the construction of a new cable car and additional snowmaking facilities. The Seefeld Olympic Region, known as one of the best cross-country skiing destinations in the world, also received major upgrades ahead of hosting the 2019 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. Further competitions will be held in Kitzbühel, Telfs and St. Sigmund/Praxmar.

ST. SIGMUND/PRAXMAR The Sellraintal, a side valley branching off the larger Inn Valley, is widely considered one of the best areas in the region for ski mountaineering. The terrain around the village of Praxmar (in the municipality of St. Sigmund) has plenty of options for all abilities, from beginners to experts. Among the most popular mountains are the Zischgeles (3,004m) and the Lampsenspitze (2,875m), which the competitors taking part in the Winter World Masters Games 2020 will have to climb as part of the Individual Race. As well as fantastic terrain, the Sellraintal offers breathtaking views of the mountain summits in the Ă–tztal Valley, Inn Valley and Stubai Valley.

SKI MOUNTAINEERING Ski Mountaineering demands real all-rounder skills. Depending on the discipline, competitions can include a climb and a descent as well as sections where competitors must unclip and carry their skis. At the WWMG in Innsbruck, medals will be awarded in two disciplines. The Vertical Race is uphill only, while the Individual Race contains both uphill and downhill sections as well as stretches where competitors will have to carry their skis. Disciplines: Vertical (3.3 km, 954 vertical metres elevation gain) and Individual (total approx. 1,900 vertical metres elevation gain) Minimum age: 35 years

THINK GREEN! The breathtaking nature and landscapes of Tyrol offer a huge range of sports and leisure activities. In order to ensure this for future generations, we have to protect and preserve the delicate ecosystem and precious natural landscapes. Please help us do so!

THE WWMG 2020 GOES GREEN! Ecological, economic and social sustainability are of great importance to the organising committee. With every decision that we take, we try to contribute to climate and environmental protection, resource conservation, as well as to social equality. Only already existing, modern sports facilities and infrastructure in Innsbruck and Tyrol will be used. All sports venues – except Kitzbühel – are located no more than 27 km from Innsbruck and can be easily reached by public transport. We pay attention to a careful handling of water and remind our guests that the tap water in Tyrol is of outstanding quality. Please help yourself and refill! By using only reusable dishes, we will be able to avoid tons of unnecessary waste. Other waste will be properly separated and disposed of. Please bring your own beverages in refillable bottles or thermos flasks. Our advertising material will be printed in small quantities using recycled or FSC-certified paper. We try to avoid printing wherever possible. All documents will be available to download from our website. Go and look it up! When it comes to services and products, we focus on cooperating with local partners. We aim to support future generations in their development – not just when it comes to sports but in general. That is why we work closely with local schools. Volunteering at the WWMG 2020 brings together people of all sexes, ages, ethnicities, religions and nationalities. This contributes to building social capital for the region. In all these points, we focus on the well-being of society with the aim of preserving and promoting social cohesion in Innsbruck and Tyrol in many years to come.
