The Sports Council Stavanger held the first Sports Day in Stavanger Forum on January 5, 2019, on behalf of the Rogaland Sports Circle and in connection with the Sports Gala 2019 held on the same day. The Sports Day included activities and performances with 29 different sports teams / sports and approximately 3000 audience members participated in the event. All sports teams had their own stand area where an activity was held for everyone to try the sport in one form or another. The diversity of sports and different types of equipment made it possible for all ages and people with disabilities to try activities suitable for them.
The sports teams on Sports Day were given a very good forum to promote both themselves and their own sports. The audience was given the opportunity to try several different sports in order to gain a better understanding of which areas they have a greater interest in. This became a particularly great opportunity for children and young people to find a sport they want to try more of. After the Sports Day 2019, several sports teams reported increased interest and more active members to their sports as a result of the event.
Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from sports teams, the public and politicians after the event, the Stavanger Sports Council wants to continue to offer this opportunity to the sport and the public in Stavanger.
Sports Day proves to be a fantastic opportunity for the Municipality of Stavanger to showcase the diversity of incredible sports available to everyone in the city!
