National Sports Event Organization

Sport Event Denmark is the national Danish sports event organization. Established and supported by the Danish Government.


Our vision is to make Denmark the ideal host of major international sporting events. Our experience from hundreds of major events over the last decade tells us we are on the right track. Our solution is to fully integrate the rights holder, the national federation and the host city – creating a powerful partnership for success.

Today Denmark is one of the leading countries in terms of hosting world class sporting events (in top-12 globally according to SportCal).

For information on the Danish situation with the corona virus see: The Danish event organizers follow the directions of the authorities.
