Celebration, culture and free concerts

During the Championships the centre of Oslo will be filled with cultural events, outdoor concerts and street life for nine days straight. - We want to create an unforgettable celebration and show the public that the World Ski Championships are more than ski races, says Director of Culture and Protocol Tove Indgjerd in Ski-VM 2011.

Planning for a big audience

The FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 will be the biggest public event in Norway since the Olympics in Lillehammer in 1994. This, combined with a brand new ski arena, means that WSC 2011 is now focusing on spectator flow. Leading experts from Britain have been helping.


A lot of entertainment for spectators

The FIS World Cup at Holmenkollen will be a historical event with the inauguration of a new sports arena. There will also be giant screens, spectator competitions, circulating commentators, live music and reports from spectators and participants.

Good and safe spectator management

In order to provide the public with the best possible experience, the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 has appointed a dedicated spectator manager. Jørgen Aass has general responsibility for coordination and quality assurance of all services and measures for and towards the public.
