Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH

Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH with its office in the Rennsteighaus (Grenzadler 7, Oberhof) is responsible for the organisation and implementation of the BMW IBU World Championships Biathlon 2023 in Oberhof and World Cups in 2024, 2025 and 2026. It was founded on 29 November 2020 and follows on from WSRO Skisport GmbH, which had organised the World Cups until 2020.

Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH may rely on the member associations of the WSRO e. V. when organising and carrying out biathlon events. The volunteers are an indispensable support.

In addition to the biathlon competitions, which have a charisma far beyond the Thuringian Forest region, Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH organises the company run Thuringia South, which has become a tradition. In future, the organisation will also organise other international (top) sports events in the LOTTO Thüringen ARENA am Rennsteig and create tourist offers.

Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH is a subsidiary of the Zweckverband Thüringer Wintersportzentrum Oberhof (TWZ) with the Olympiastützpunkt Thuringia. The TWZ is the owner and operator of all sports facilities in Oberhof, home to numerous Olympic, World and European champions, and sets the framework conditions for top and young athletes in seven Olympic winter sports disciplines.

Dr. Hartmut Schubert is the chairman of the association Thuringian Winter Sports Center, who also takes on the role of the World Cup and Oberhof representative for the state government. The Oberhofer Sport und Event GmbH and the TWZ work hand in hand to create unforgettable experiences for both active and fans at the World Cup and the World Cup.
