Organiser

The Wolfsberg Cup is organised by ATSV Wolfsberg. This club was founded in 1927 and has 600 members and 10 youth teams. The first team currently plays at the highest level in the Austrian Bundesliga. The municipality of Wolfsberg plays an active role in the organisation of this tournament, as does the local tourist office.

Sport facillity

You will play the matches at various sports grounds in the Wolfsberg area. Not only do all of these locations have beautiful pitches, they also feature spacious changing rooms and cosy canteens. Exactly what you need for a successful tournament! The main location also has a modern stadium.

Wolfsberg

The history of Wolfsberg (460 m, 25,000 inhabitants) is a long one, stretching back over a thousand years. Wolfsberg is located between Graz and Klagenfurt in Carinthia, at the foot of the Koralpe mountain range. Visitors who approach the city from the south will see the imposing Wolfsberg Castle, which towers high above the atmospheric old town. The Wolfsberg Cup is played a few kilometres from the town centre.     

Wolfsberg Stadium Pool

There's no room for boredom at the Wolfsberg Stadium Pool . You'll find a 50 metre pool, a 70m long water slide, a 10 metre high diving board, a mini-golf course and a beach volleyball court. The stadium pool is right next door to the ATSV stadium.

Wolfsberg Castle

Even back in the 12th century, this castle was famous for the excellent construction of its fortress. The local population certainly benefited from it when the Turks and Hungarians besieged the city: there was no way for them to conquer the fortress. In the 19th century, the castle underwent a facelift, but the sturdy foundations - dating back to the 15th century - were left intact. The castle was restored in the Tudor style and is now under private ownership. From May to October, it plays host to various exhibitions and visits can be conducted by arrangement.

Rodelbaan Klippitztörl

Attention, all lovers of adrenaline-fuelled excitement. There’s a real toboggan run, called Klippitztörl, just outside Wolfsberg. It’s only open during the summer months, which coincides with the Wolfsberg Cup. The track is 1,400 metres long, has 18 curves, and you race 260 metres downhill. At its fastest point, you will hit speeds of 10 metres a second. A fun challenge and adventure for you and your team mates.
