2019 Minsk
European Games

Following the highly successful inaugural edition in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 2015, at its 2016 General Assembly the EOC voted Minsk, the capital of Belarus, as host to the second edition of the European Games, which will take place from 21 to 30 June 2019.

Minsk benefits from already having all the necessary venues for all the sports on the programme, all within very close proximity of each other, making the event one of the most compact in the history of multisport events, and putting it in line with Agenda 2020 like no other multisport event yet.

Sports Programme

The 4,000 participating athletes will all be the best senior athletes in their sport.

The programme will include 15 sports, 10 of which will provide Olympic qualifications for Tokyo 2020:

  • Athletics
  • Archery
  • Badminton
  • 3x3 Basketball
  • Beach Soccer
  • Boxing
  • Canoe Sprint
  • Cycling
  • Gymnastics
  • Judo
  • Karate
  • Sambo
  • Shooting
  • Table Tennis
  • Wrestling

Athletes' Village

Athletes will be lodged at the completely refurbished Minsk University residence hall right in the centre of the city.

EOC Coordination Comission

The European Olympic Committees (EOC) announced the full membership of the Coordination Commission for the second edition of the European Games in 2019 in Minsk, Belarus, on 17 July 2017.

The membership has been carefully selected by the EOC to ensure that every stakeholder in the European Games, from athletes to NOCs and sports federations, is represented and can contribute to the successful preparations for the event.

The Commission Members


As the map shows, all venues are situated in close proximity to each other in town, and close to both the Athletes’ Village, the EOC Family Hotel and the other hotels selected for the event. This will greatly simplify logistics during Games time.

Refurbishment of the historic Dinamo Stadium is currently being completed, whilst all other venues are in pristine condition and ready to go.
