The breathtaking and impressive opening ceremony marks the beginning of the Games and is for sure THE highlight of the event.
All nations are presented while the crowd is cheering on the teams. Awesome show-acts and our entertainment team will get you partying!
In the end the oath of fairness will be taken. A breathtaking moment and one-in-a-lifetime-experience...
Due to the huge number of attending people, the safety of our participants is our main priority - also and especially during the presentation of the nations on the stadium field.
Just like in 2015 and 2016, some of you will have the chance to present your countries' flag to the crowd in the stadium.
In order to have a fair selection of the flag presenting teams we will hold a draw after the registration period for the UWG 2017 is over.
The principle is simple: The more participants per nation, the more teams will be officially representing the nation.
Therefore, we will draw between 2 to 6 teams per nation, depending on the number of participants for each country.
Don't worry if you and your friends won't be chosen for the march of the Nations, you guys will still play an important role during the opening ceremony! You will represent your team and your country while cheering on the representatives from the stands.
Without the excitement, the laughter and the joy of all of you, the big ceremony would not be the same!
Note: Make sure you bring your country's colours (flags, bandanas, scarfes etc.) with you!
Tickets are available at the box office (Stadium Entrance North) for €10,00.
For all athletes and guests who booked a fan package the entrance to the opening ceremony is included.
