Junior World Cup 2020
Norway's World Cup application for the Alpine World Cup was postponed from 2025 to 2027, which means that Narvik will have the opportunity to showcase both it organizer expertise and its spectacular surroundings for the entire ski world before deciding where the World Cup will be held in 2027.
Narvik Alpine Club was named Narviking of the year in 2017, after a phenomenal job of organizing Norwegian Championship in alpine skiing. Manager in Narvik Alpine Club, John Christian Eriksson, talks about a club that is highly motivated for the task of organizing such a big championship.
- On behalf of the club it is very exciting to have been selected to host the Junior World Cup in 2020. This will be a test in relation to a potential World Cup in Narvik, and I am sure the club and everyone involved will again show that we can hold such championchips at a particularly high level. It is motivating for the club to be central to this process, and we will do everything we can to ensure that this event is also noticed beyond the limits, says Eriksson.
- It is important for Narvik and Northern Norway to get back on the organizer map. We know we can create a good and spectacular championship, says Erik Plener in Narvikfjellet Ski Resport.
- Narvik has a fantastic arena and long traditions in alpine skiing. It is heavily invested in the ski area in Narvik. For Norwegian junior apline athletes, this is a fantastic opportunity to run the World Cup at home, says sports manager for the Alpine Skiing Association, Claus Johan Ryste.
