Everyone who wants to be involved - because that is how sport should be!

Together with our partner Tiljan, we repeat the success of recent years with inauguration in central Umeå. This happens on Thursday evening on July 25th.

All teams gather at 19: 15-19:30 at Västra Strandgatan (see map), Representative for your association retrieves sign with the clubname in place.
Please bring your own association flag / team sign.

Buses to the opening ceremony go from Ersängsskolan, Mariebergsskolan, Bräntbergsskolan, Mariehemsskolan and back afterwards.
You who live at the Dragonskolan (about 15 minutes) and Hagaskolan (about 20 minutes) take a nice walk so that you are in place well in advance.

NOTE! For those of you who go by bus to the opening ceremony, it is important to go in good time, as there are many teams who want to go and there is limited space on each bus.
