Sportzentrum Pausitzer Delle

World Championship Sports Hall

The history of Riesa as an event venue begins in the World Championships Athletic Arena when Riesa hosted the 1996 Acrobatics World Championships, followed by the 1998 European Weightlifting Championships, the Sumo European Championships, the first Tapdance World Championships in Riesa and an RTL professional boxing evening with Markus Beyer. It was mainly FVG Riesa mbH (as the operator of the World Championships Athletic Arena and Riesa’s SACHSENarena) that made the sports hall available to this important club and school sport. Beyond this, the World Championships Athletic Arena is an important part of the Pausitzer Delle athletic complex. It offers outstanding training facilities to world-class and up-and-coming athletes. For instance, the Elbehexen ( Elba Elbe Witches), Riesa’s successful women’s handball team, trains and plays there. The World Championships Athletic Arena is directly annexed to the SACHSENarena, thus it can be used as training and warm-up facilities or backstage zone during major events.
