Tentative program

The focus of our tournament are the games in the 14 different age groups. Games start on Tuesday and will be played on approx. 40 playgrounds all over Vienna. We also have many side events going on and have other offers, such as sightseeing tours and a tournament disco. Some side events require a registration either at the infopoint or at the tournament office. Please see the program folder for further details!


Arrival and technical meeting

From 7:00 a.m. the teams can check-in at our tournament office. From 1:00 p.m. the lodging schools will be open as well and the participants can explore their rooms, the school and the city of Vienna.

Due to rigid COVID precautions our opening ceremony will not take place this year. We feel the need to start the tournament in a safe environment and focus on the games.

At 7:30 p.m. we ask all coaches and referees to join our TECHNICAL MEETING in hall E. We will explain special tournament rules, the game mode and answer your questions there.


Start of the games

Game day: kick-off! At 9 a.m. games in 14 age groups start on approx. 40 playgrounds all over Vienna simoultaneously. About 300 games are played on this first day, officiated by approx. 100 international referees and 200 table officials. 

Furthermore, we have 150 other staff members taking care of a splendid flow from breakfast to the very last moment of the day.



Games continue today! When there were a lot of registrations for an age group, they play an extra qualifying round and only after that group- or play-off games. All teams of the same age group will be divided into 4 or 5 groups and play a qualifying round in the first two days of the tournament (3 or 4 group matches per team).

City tours

Today we start our city tours for participants! For two hours we show our beautiful city to the interested kids and parents - from Belvedere to Prater, from Schönbrunn to Burgtheater in German and English.


Mini kids relay

6pm - Stadthalle Hall B
Today it’s our youngster's turn!
At 6pm the teams of the age categories U12 and U13 compete in a slalom course and demonstrate that they can handle the basketball fabulously off the playground, too! Who wins the cup for their team?


All teams that reach the first or the second place in their group (in some age groups also best of third-placed teams - BO3rd) will be put together in a class „high“ in groups of three teams. The teams play against each other (max. 2 games on the third day).

All teams that did not achieve the class „high“(places 3, 4, 5 of the qualification round) will continue to play in a class „low“ with games on the 3rd and the 4th day. There won’t be an extra play-off round in class "low".

Mixed Free Throws

7pm - Stadthalle Hall B
On that day, the age groups U14-U16 show their ability in free throwing. In mixed teams girls and boys compete together to demonstrate that they can score as many free throws as possible in 90 seconds.
A faster, more exciting event with lots of music and a big fun factor!


The team that reaches place 1 (winner of the group) will continue to the play-offs on the 4th day. The final game will be played on the 5th day.

Final games
Some finals take place today. Before and after the Slam Dunk Contest, the hall is exactly in the right mood to get the players to top performances!

Also the Slam Dunk contest and the Tournament Party are cancelled due to safte regulations issued by the authorities. However, a get together in the schools is certainly possible.  


Final games

8am - Stadthalle hall A & B
Just keep your head in the game! The finals are played today. One more battle, one more game – show us what you’ve got! In the end everyone wants to win the Cup, don’t you think?

The last game will start at 12.45pm most likely.


And yet it's time to say goodbye again. Schools close at 10am. Due to general and fire safety issues it is not allowed to store any luggage at Stadthalle anymore. 

Tournament Office

The tournament office is open daily from 7 a.m. throughout the tournament and is centrally located at the main tournament venue.

"Wiener Stadthalle"
Vogelweidplatz 14
1150 Vienna

Security procedures

As security procedures at big events have become an increasingly important topic, the management team of our Easter tournament Basketball Wien Osterturnier, has decided to make small, but effective changes in terms of organization and the course of the event.

The following applies to Viennese teams as well!

  1. All players, coaches and other attendees have to register at the tournament’s office by bringing a residential registration form (name, date of birth, place of birth, passport number, team name). The residential registration forms can either be brought along to check-in, or can be emailed to us beforehand.
  2. According with the residential registration form, EACH participant will receive a tournament pass, which will be used to gain entry to all tournament venues.
  3. Visitors/ Spectators can download a visitor's pass on our website. After filling out all important details, we will email you the pass immediately. This pass can then be shown in print or electronically (on your mobile telephone) at venue entrances. 

This tournament pass will be available in different types and will gain you entry to all tournament venues, which means all courts, accommodation schools, and the main tournament venue at Wiener Stadthalle. Furthermore, the tournament pass can contain – depending on the services you will book – a free sight-seeing tour, lodging (breakfast, lunch and dinner), a ticket for public transport and a tournament city map.

So far, we have offered the following versions of our tournament pass: deluxe, regular and light. Since 2017, there is another modification called “PURE”. The pass “PURE” will be given to those, who have not claimed any services like accommodation or lodging, and will be used as proof of being a tournament participant. Because of this, we would like to ask you to plan some time in order to check-in to pick up your tournament passes.


We would ask all of those who are not on the registration form of a team, to download the Visitor Pass on our website. You do NOT have to come to the Office at Stadthalle for this. After filling out all the necessary information, the Visitor Pass will be mailed to you electronically. You can then show this pass to our staff in printed or electronic (on your phone) version.
