Information

The World Cup 2022 kicks off during the Ascension holiday weekend 26th to 29th of May in the City of Borås in western Sweden. Borås used to be a centre for the textile industry and still holds a grip on the textile trade in Sweden. Borås has also over the past decade become a leading cultural destination that attracts art lovers from every corner of the world.

“We are very happy to invite athletes, teams and fans to Sweden. Borås municipality and the orienteering clubs are very experienced organizers with yearly orienteering events such as Borås O-Event, gathering approximately 3000 people every year. The latest international event was O-Ringen 2015. The Swedish Orienteering Federation together with the clubs and municipality welcome you to Borås and we will do our utmost to offer fun, interesting and fast-paced competitions for runners, coaches, and spectators”, says Tomas Stenström, Sport Director at Swedish Orienteering Federation.

The town has a strong sprint orienteering tradition, and the races will certainly be demanding with a high level of skill needed. Several different areas around the town will be used. The races will be held only a month before the World Championships in neighbouring country Denmark. A good opportunity to get up to speed!

“We are very proud to welcome the World Cup for an intense sprint next spring. The City of Borås will do our utmost to take care of all participants and visitors during the events. Welcome!” says Ulf Olsson, chairman of the Municipal Board.
