If you would like to experience one of the most amazing sporting celebrations in Europe, then you have come to the right place!  The bidding procedure starts early, so you need to be prepared, and have a clear understanding of your clubs abilities and possibilities for hosting such an event. During the bidding process, which starts in April each year, there are several Q&A opportunities with the EGLSF board who can support and advise on your bid. Final deadline is tin December each year.

The final presentation must be made to the Annual General Assembly in March where the delegates vote on who they think presents the best bid. But before your presentation at the AGA, you need to create a bidbook. As continuing support, the bidding club receives a handbook with all procedures and deadlines. Once the host city is announced you have 3 years to realise your plans.


The timeline for 2026 bid is on hold, waiting for a decision if it will be opened at all since there are Gay Games in Europe that year. 

The timeline for 2027 bid:-

  • April 2023 – Bidding interest is officially opened and the EGLSF board can answer any questions you may have. You may also request a bidding manual at this stage.
