FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 19.02 – 03.03.2019 in Seefeld

12 days, 22 medal decisions and 204,400 cheering visitors – the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships have gone down in the sporting history of the Region Seefeld. With success. Brilliant, picture-book weather ensured an exuberant mood among the visitors from all over the world on almost all competition days and the athletes were also thrilled by the conditions on site.

It was the calm before the storm, as on the first day of the World Championships – 19 February – the athletes prepared for the coming days, 1,300 media representatives and journalists set up their quarters in the press centre and the caterers of the Nordic Mile busily stocked their stands. And then the time had finally come: on 20 February the first qualifications and training sessions took place in the World Cup arena and in the evening the visitors were treated to a colourful and sparkling opening ceremony with the character of a World Champion!

From that day on, a lot changed in the venue Seefeld – nations came together, fans from different countries cheered together, athletes motivated each other and hundreds of international volunteers contributed decisively to the success of the World Championships. True to the motto "Hand in Hand", there was a special atmosphere in the World Championships arena that brought top-class sport to life in the Region Seefeld.
