Following the huge success of the first ever Scooter official World Championships, held during the 2019 edition of the World Roller Games, World Skate is proud to launch this second edition of the World Champs. The event has been added to the Extreme Barcelona programme and will take place on September 25 to 26 at the Parc del Forum: the competitions, live on World Skate Tv, will include park and street for both men and women category.
The World Championships will be organized in partnerships with SevenMila, the well-known urban sport organizer, and is going to take place during one of the most amazing contests, the Extreme Barcelona, with the aim to bring the best athletes from all over the world. Soon after the Tokyo Games - where skateboarding will make its Olympic debut - Scooter in Barcelona will provide one more taste of urban sports and their great appeal on the youth: we are sure that Scooter contests will be a keyframe in the success of the festival. Since 2008 , Extreme Barcelona has become one of the great events of urban sports and this year, from September 24-26, it hopes to bring together the best.
Sabatino Aracu, World Skate President: "We are so excited to come back to Barcelona with the scooter World Championships: One of the youngest sports in one of the cities that youth love most; such a perfect match! We all are looking forward to being back here: Barcelona is surely one of the cities where our legacy is stronger for all our sports. Here we hold the last edition of the World Roller Games in 2019 just before COVID forced us to such a long stop from competitions!"
Victor Casanovas, Urban Sports director in SevenMila: "It is a great privilege to partner with World Skate to bring back Scooter World Championships for 2021. Extreme Barcelona has always been very committed to help scooter grow and become one of the most relevant urban sports.
