FISE World Series Montpellier 2020: The 24th edition will be 100% digital!

After many discussions regarding how to deliver an edition of FISE World Series Montpellier that can meet the safety and security requirements needed in response to COVID-19,  Hurricane Events, in consultation with World Skate, has taken the decision to organize a fully digital FISE Montpellier event in 2020.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the FISE World Series calendar has been initially adapted in order to hopefully take advantage of more favorable conditions this summer. Given the ongoing situation and the new measures announced by the French government on April 28th, this plan had to be revised to ensure the health and wellbeing of all festival attendees, which remains our main priority. The rescheduled FISE World Series 2020 stages at the second half of the year and those of the start of the 2021 season will hopefully provide an opportunity for us to meet again safely soon.

FISE World Series Montpellier has been celebrating urban sports for more than 20 years, bringing together over 600,000 spectators and nearly 2,000 athletes on the banks of the Lez each year in May, alongside a community of no less than 20 million people on social networks, who also share the values of this festival and a vibrant passion for action sports.

Hurricane Events is pleased to announce that in 2020, FISE World Series Montpellier will take place in a new, global and multidisciplinary form: a digital contest. The concept is simple and the contest will be open to male and female athletes, pros and amateurs. Each will participate in the event by submitting video entries which will be judged by both the fans and leading figures from the world of action sports. The winners will be awarded the same amount of prize money as the 2019 edition of FISE Montpellier. The terms of participation and the schedule will be announced on May 21st, 2020.

This new formula is a unique opportunity for all fans to strengthen their bond with their idols by voting for the best action sport talent, plus a great opportunity for athletes to share their passion.

Info about the contest concept and terms will be provided on May 20th: Stay tuned!
