More than 25,000 fans want to see the opening jump on site.
The ski jumping fans want to come to Oberstdorf again. Even before the second World Cup weekend, the organisers can look forward to a full house at the opening jump of the Four Hills Tournament. For the competition day on 29th December, all tickets have been sold, so that more than 25,000 spectators will keep their fingers crossed for the world's best ski eagles in the World Cup Ski Jumping Arena Oberstdorf again. Tickets are still available for the qualification on 28th December at www.arena-ticket-allgaeu.de.
"It's great that the fascination of ski jumping has lost none of its popularity and that we can jump in front of full crowds again. This motivates the athletes, us as organisers and of course our more than 700 volunteers in the Oberstdorf team. We are really looking forward to an extraordinary ski jumping spectacle on the Schattenberg," says Georg Geiger, chairman of the Oberstdorf Ski Club and chairman of the organising committee for the opening jump.
Tickets for qualification still available
This winter, Geiger and his team are expecting a great crowd, not only at the competition but also already at the qualification. "Especially families with children or seniors are advised to visit the qualification day. This way they can experience the unique atmosphere in Oberstdorf live, but at the same time they have it a bit quieter than on competition day," says Florian Stern, Managing Director of Skiclub Oberstdorf Veranstaltungs GmbH. This year, many spectators will once again take advantage of the popular combination tickets, which are valid on both days of the event.
Official opening on 27th December
The world's best ski jumpers will be presented for the first time on Tuesday, 27th December, from 7 p.m. at the official opening of the 71st Four Hills Tournament in the Nordic Park. "The presentation of the teams in the full Nordic Park in front of the Oberstdorf Haus is the first goosebump moment at the tour. I'm looking forward to that just as much as to two exciting days of competition," says Dr. Peter Kruijer, the President of the Four Hills Tournament, who is also from Oberstdorf.
After the opening jump in Oberstdorf, the other stops on the programme are Garmisch-Partenkirchen (December 31/January 1), Innsbruck (January 3/4) and Bischofshofen (January 5/6).go back
