Europeana Sport season

Europeana Sport brings stories of our personal sporting activities and achievements together with archive material. Because sport is so much more than exercise - it's teamwork, it's cooperation, it's nationhood, it's shared experiences, shared successes and failures. It's an integral part of our cultural heritage.

In 2020, Europeana along with museums, galleries, libraries and archives across Europe, will raise awareness of the diversity of Europe's sporting heritage through creative editorial and online participatory activities.
