Sport landscape. In Riesa. | | © hita56
The strategy of the Sport City of Riesa is founded upon three pillars: large-scale athletic events, support from world-class athletes and intensive backing for up-and-coming high-performance sport and sport with a wide appeal. Riesa has played host to a whole series of world and European championships, world cups and other international competitions in various athletic disciplines since the mid-1990s where athletes from more than 60 countries went to the starting line.

Athletes from Riesa represent our city and Germany at the Olympic and world championships while a whole series of trainers are constantly developing new talents by dedicating their efforts to the potential followers of today’s stars. The entire breadth of sport is a topic for heated debate through all sections of the population because Riesa has got the right event for everybody.
