We are sorry to announce that Stockholm Indoor Cup 6-7th February is CANCELLED, naturally due to the ongoing pandemic. We may be able to organise a smaller covid-secure competition later in 2021- keep up to date through this website. Stay safe!

Welcome to Stockholm Indoor Cup, the world’s biggest indoor orienteering event! Stockholm Indoor Cup (SIC) is the competition for you who want a unique orienteering experience- it is all indoors! Racing through the stairs and along the corridors of a building, just to find yourself stuck and do it all over again… Think of it as a 3D maze as much as ordinary orienteering! And remember, the world’s best forest orienteer may not be the one winning SIC…

The premises for Stockholm Indoor Cup 2021 are yet very unclear. The competition is set to be hosted 6th-7th February 2021. As of January 15th 2021, this however seems more and more unrealistic. All types of sports events are currently banned and it is unlikely that anything will change in three weeks. Furthermore, UK and Danish citizens are banned from entering Sweden until further notice.

We intend to give a notification on the organising of SIC no later than January 24th. Three options are at the moment considered; organising something 6-7th February, cancelling the competition entirely or postponing it until later in the spring. Regarding postponement, this has to be coordinated with other O-races within the Stockholm region.

There is some hope that these restrictions will be at least somewhat relaxed soon, and thereby making it possible to organise something. In order to maintain social distancing, we are looking towards organising a ”light” edition with no indoor arena, long start intervals and recommending personal transport to/from the venue. Something that will not change however is the experience along the course! Quite the opposite, with less work to do on the competition centre we hope to be able to focus even more on the ”little extras” during the race!

We will keep you updated through Facebook (with updates in English!) and through this website, however, don’t expect a full-scale, ’normal’, competition in February.

We also kindly ask you to take all covid-restrictions and recommendations seriously. Please check https://www.krisinformation.se/en/hazards-and-risks/disasters-and-incidents/2020/official-information-on-the-new-coronavirus/visiting-sweden-during-the-covid-19-pandemic  for updated official information. If we have any doubts whatsoever about the safety of organising the competition, we will cancel the event.

Usually, we are happy to help out with any practical details for competing in Stockholm Indoor Cup! This year, though, things may be different due as travel restrictions may be in place. We will publish all information in English, however it may be a bit delayed compared to the Swedish information. If you need any information from us to be able to plan your trip, please don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail on info@stockholmindoorcup.se

Entries, bulletins etc are posted through Eventor, the Swedish Entry system. A link will be put here once we know more! Don’t miss our Facebook page or Instagram for regular updates!
