From 13-17 December, Denmark is hosting the European Short Course Swimming Championships at the newly-built Royal Arena in Copenhagen. Over 25,000 people are expected to attend the intense heats during five days of world-class swimming.
In just two weeks, Royal Arena underwent a massive transformation from a large concert arena with bands like Iron Maiden performing to a swimming stadium seating 6,500 spectators.
2 million litres of water were filled into the newly-built pools in Royal Arena. Pictures from the opening ceremony.
During the championships, DSV is responsible for handling all transport and logistics for the large amount of equipment and goodie bags for the event. The Head of Development at the Danish Swimming Federation, Morten Hinnerup says:
”We are very happy with the support from DSV. During events of this size, it is important that we have a professional supplier who can handle the logistics before, during and after the championships.”
