Salzburg has guaranteed Games with “short transfer times” and will follow through on its promise. Most of the sport venues are either in the city or in one of its neighbouring villages and towns. This allows the shortest possible transfer times to the competitions. The Rif University and Provincial Sport Centre in the south of the city will be one of the important hotspots of the Games. It will host the track and field events and swimming competitions, as well as shooting and handball contests.
Golf players can look forward to several courses within just a few kilometres of one another in the north of Salzburg (Eugendorf, Henndorf). And finally, some tournaments, such as table tennis and badminton, will be held in the meeting centre (Messezentrum Salzburg).
