Advance ticket sales for the Dresden Ski World Cup started 50 days before the Dresden Ski World Cup (December 19 and 20). “I am very pleased that the World Ski Federation FIS is placing its trust in us again for December 2020 to organize the Ski World Cup on Dresden's Königsufer. Together with the FIS and the German Ski Association DSV, we will set up a safe World Cup in all areas. I'm looking forward to this highlight: the best cross-country skiers in the world in one of the most beautiful cities on earth, ”said World Cup organizer René Kindermann.
Comprehensive rules for a safe ski event
A highlight that is planned with spectators in compliance with all applicable distance and hygiene regulations and on the basis of a hygiene concept certified by TÜV. The German Olympic Sports Confederation and the German Ski Association have jointly developed a hygiene guide for sports events that has already been tested by TÜV and forms the basis for the on-site hygiene concept in Dresden. This is currently in the final development phase and is designed for 500 spectators per day of the competition. “Our concept includes distance regulations, contact tracking, mouth and nose protection and personalized tickets,” explains Kindermann. “The top priority is the protection of athletes and visitors. For this we are in close contact with the local authorities and the FIS.“ Personalized tickets for the Christmas World Cup are now available at www.skiweltcup-dresden.de and at all common ticket agencies. As with the Ski World Cup in January, the prices are at the level of cinema tickets. Adults pay 18 euros, schoolchildren and students pay 10 euros. The weekend ticket costs 30 euros. Families pay 40 euros for 2 adults and up to 4 children. There are special offers for ski clubs. There is a VIP area on an open-air basis with a hut ambience. The tickets for this cost 99 euros including food.
Summit meeting of the superstars on Mount Dresden
From a sporting point of view, the World Cup weekend in front of the impressive skyline of Dresden's old town is the "internal prelude" to the Tour de Ski, which begins just 12 days later, on January 1st, 2021, in Val Mustair, Switzerland. Most of the ski teams, including the superstars from Norway around sprinter Johannes Høsflot Klæbo and last year's winners from France, have already registered for the sprint races. It is certain that all nations, including the athletes from overseas, will be in Central Europe before the competitions. Regular corona tests are carried out, which are recorded in a digital COVID-19 passport. To enter Saxony and participate in the Dresden Ski World Cup, a negative PCR test that is no longer than 48 hours is required. As in January, the athletes compete on a 650-meter-long track that is run twice, in the individual sprint on Saturday and in the team sprint on Sunday. From December 14th to 17th and on December 21st and 22nd there will be "school sport on skis" with Tobias Angerer. Around Christmas Eve, the people of Dresden will be able to use the World Cup snow for themselves.
