Europe meets Sportland Upper Austria

“Your life. Your sport. It is your time!” is the motto of the new ‚ÄúSports Strategy Upper Austria 2025 “, which forms the basis for promotion of both mass and competitive sports in Upper Austria. In this way, selective measures are taken to permanently anchor a strong culture of sports and movement in the minds of the Upper Austrian public as well as to visualize the special significance of sport to all areas of society.

This is why the Sportland Upper Austria also strives to be the venue for international sporting events, as well as the USPE Police European Championships. Through international participation in various competitions and the unique atmosphere in Hinterstoder and Rosenau, the federal state of Upper Austria receives attention beyond the national borders and can present itself as a high-profile region of sports and tourism.

As regional minister for sports, business and tourism, I would like to thank the organizing team of the Austrian Police Sports Association and all volunteers for the professional organization of these international competitions.

I would also like to warmly welcome all athletes to Sportland Upper Austria and wish you successful and fair competitions at the USPE Police Championships.
