The Student games 2021 or “Studentlekene (SL)”, is one of the largest university sports festival in Norway and will take place in Trondheim 24th – 28th of February 2021. SL is a gathering of student championships and student cups in a variety of different sports at all levels.
The Student games started in 1999 when NTNUI gathered 800 participants in ten different sports. This was a start of something that later on turned out to be a huge success. Since 2010, the games has been arranged each year with increasing number of participants and interest from the rest of university sports community in Norway. It was last held in Bergen in October 2021.
The Games is known for being active communities, both in broad- and elite sport. SL Trondheim embrace this idea by its slogan “Bli med på leken”, which means to get into the game. It will be held competitions in both team sports and individual sports. The winners of a student championship awaits honor and glory, the right to call themselves student champion and qualification for the student-euro, if arranged.
The competitions will take place in private and municipal halls and at outdoor stadiums in Trondheim. Many of the championships will be held in proximity to each other, so it will be possible for viewers to see the diversity in university sports. Trondheim will also be characterized by the non-sporting activities this weekend. In addition to the competitions, you can look forward to presentations, seminars and other festivities both for participants, volunteers and other students!
