Star Rapper CRO Opens The RUHR GAMES

On Thursday, June 20th 2019, Europe’s largest youth sports festival returns for the third time, this year in Duisburg! The event will span four days and include an array of traditional and modern sports tournaments, cultural events, and international youth meetings all held at the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park. On the evening of the first event day, our event organizers are proud to announce that star rapper and music icon CRO present an open-air performance!
The masked-superstar will be the jump-start to our four day, action-packed 2019 RUHR GAMES. Street art, dance workshops, “Funkin' Stylez” performances, graffiti bingo, and live games with virtual & augmented reality are just some of the offerings that await. An international athletes' party will happen on Friday and on Sunday, another live performance will take place. Sunday’s live show will be announced in May.

The RUHR GAMES are designed to present each respective sport in a special and unique way, thus creating a platform for the stars of tomorrow. Numerous Olympic hopefuls and reigning German & European champions from 17 sports will take part in the events, including the German climbing championship and European skateboarding championship. This concept and the industrial and cultural backdrop of the Ruhr area will make the RUHR GAMES one of a kind in Europe.

The festival from 20 to 23 June (Corpus Christi weekend) will undoubtedly be a highlight of the 2019 Youth Sports Year.

Admission to all program events is free!
