Volkswagen has sponsored numerous major sporting events in recent years and will provide exclusive transportation for athletes and VIPs, while Red Bull is synonymous with elite urban and adrenaline sports, and will be active on site and in the global promotion of the event.

    In addition, a number of internationally renowned brands from the urban sports scene will be involved with the Games, building the atmosphere of the three-day festival into an unmissable experience for fans.

    Local Organising Committee Chairman Balázs Fürjes said:

    “The World Urban Games has attracted interest from some of the biggest and most widely recognised national and international brands. This is a reflection not only of the sports landscape’s shift towards exciting new urban sports but also a credit to the complete urban festival that we have created with GAISF.”

    The World Urban Games, powered by GAISF, will take place from 13-15 September in Budapest, Hungary. The Games will be the ultimate showcase of urban culture, with almost 300 elite urban sports athletes competing across six competition and two showcase sports, as well as music and art demonstrations taking place throughout the three-day festival.

    Following the announcement, GAISF President Raffaele Chiulli said:

    “The interest from multiple, global brands shows the commercial value that urban sports have around the world today. We have seen a shift towards urban sports and I have no doubt that the World Urban Games will create a platform for the world’s leading urban athletes to showcase their incredible skills.”
