SHARE YOUR STORY
Can you help us to tell the story of sport in Europe in the past and the present?
We invite you to tell us about your sport experiences through objects like photographs, memorabilia, equipment or prizes.
Whether you’re a spectator or a player, whether you prefer to be on a team or battling alone, we all have stories to tell about our involvement in sport.
Sharing yours can help us to tell a really big story - the story of Europe through our sporting heritage.
Your story is part of Europe’s rich and shared history, and now it can be recorded for the future, and made freely available for anyone to discover and use for education, research, inspiration and pleasure.

Europeana Sport season
Europeana Sport brings stories of our personal sporting activities and achievements together with archive material. Because sport is so much more than exercise - it's teamwork, it's cooperation, it's nationhood, it's shared experiences, shared successes and failures. It's an integral part of our cultural heritage.
In 2021, Europeana along with museums, galleries, libraries and archives across Europe, will raise awareness of the diversity of Europe's sporting heritage through creative editorial and online participatory activities.
