The Opening Festival Ceremony

Tuesday July 4

In Partille Cups constant strive for development, we proudly present a brand new concept – The Opening Festival Ceremony. As the name implies the opening night will have more of a festival character. It might be the most appreciated element of the tournament and possibly the most unique part as well. For many, the memories of the night linger long after Partille Cup is over.

The Opening Festival Ceremony will be tighter than before, loaded with high tempo and energy. The tournament will continue to develop the technical solutions. This combined with a stage surrounded by giant LED screens will give the technology a central part of the show. The Opening Festival Ceremony will not only be filled with participants on the stands, the floor will also be filled in a genuine Festival style. The stage will be moved to the short side of the arena floor. We want a tighter show, why we have chosen to shorten it down. Of course we will keep the essential parts of the show, such as the presentation of the nations and the reading of the oath, but we will try to twist it and give the teams even more attention with stylish dance choreographies and some good music. The tournament aimes to present the audience the hottest and most contemporary music we can and by that presenting the coolest experience a young handball player can have.

The festival

Hundreds of dancers, choreographs, producers and technicians are working for months with the preparations. The manuscript take almost up to a year to complete, and all this hard work to be able to present a magical night at Partille Cup – World of Handball. To invite to a production of this scale is unique among tournaments, but apart from handball, Partille Cup is also about sharing experiences and meet with other cultures. During one night this is happening at the same time, that is why we put such an effort into the Opening Festival Ceremony. The Opening night is international by the tournament’s nature and for us the diversity is what makes our tournament so special. Combined with global songs and music we are breaking down barriers and creates new bonds of friendship that sometimes lasts for life.
