The 15th World Firefighters Games

World Firefighters Games 2024 will be in Aalborg, Denmark.

5,000 firefighters and accompanying families are expected to visit Aalborg from September 7th to 14th 2024 to participate in more than 40 sports.

The World Firefighters Games has been held since 1990 when the first host city was Auckland, New Zealand. The last time the games visited Europe, was in 2008 in Liverpool.

Aalborg’s ambition is to create games where sport, community and unique experiences are in focus.

Social Events

During the World Firefighters Games 2024, you can take part in an exciting social and cultural programme. You can join your fellow firefighters for the opening and closing ceremonies and experience concerts and cultural performances in Games Village.

The opening ceremony and concerts and cultural performances will also be open to the public.

In between sports, it will be possible to go on city tours to the sights of Aalborg and Northern Denmark or just enjoy the many other events going on in the many parks and squares in the city.
