  • Vuokatti 2021 moved to December


    The coronavirus pandemic forces more and more multi-sport games to be postponed. This includes also European Youth Olympic Winter Festival in Vuokatti, which was to take place next February. The organizing committee decided to move the event to December.


    The competition for athletes between 14 and 18 years of age will take place on 11-18 December 2021. With keeping it in an original year of organizing the Festival, it gives the chances to participate for the same athletes, as the February date, despite some of them might be aiming for the competition of a higher age category in the 2021/2022 winter season, which features also 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.


    The decision of Vuokatti 2021 organizers follows the postponmenet of the summer edition of 2021 EYOF, which will be held in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia in 2022 to avoid clash with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics to be held in Summer 2021. Another competition planned for the next winter, 2021 Winter Universiade in Lucern was also postponed by FISU with the new date still not being announced.
