New visitor record

Joy, success and records everywhere: 110,000 visitors celebrated with us the European Skateboard Champions, the German Speed Climbing Championships - including the new German record - and of course the concerts of Cro and Bosse in the unique industrial setting! Overwhelming!

The third RUHR GAMES have thus doubled their result from 2017 and are finally establishing themselves - so modestly one may be - as a highlight of the sports metropolis Ruhr. Enthusiastic voices from athletes, sports associations, spectators and the media alike! The unique mix of top-class sport, interactive activities, cultural workshops and shows has been a perfect success.

The immediate vicinity of the competition areas also steered skateboard fans to table tennis, fencing and wrestling, BMX fans then loudly cheered on the pole vaulters and in the Center Court basketball, judo and Funkin' Stylez, among other things, provided for frenetic jubilation throughout. A unique experience!

Congratulations to all winners!
And a big thank you to all visitors.
