Football is Diversity! Startschuss Diversity Day at UEFA EURO 24

It‘s UEFA EURO 24 time in Germany and also in Hamburg!
On this special occasion our queer sports club will be hosting a special queer football tournament on the 6th of July – the STARTSCHUSS DIVERSITY DAY!

On 6 July 2024, the Heiligengeistfeld in St. Pauli will be transformed into the EURO24 fan zone for our queer football tournament.
The ball will be rolling from 1 pm to around 7.30 pm – and you can be part of it!

A day full of football, fun and diversity! Our tournament offers a diverse supporting programme with show acts, prominent guests from politics, the queer scene and sports as well as a strong focus on diversity. We represent queer diversity within the football and sports community and show how sport connects different lifestyles.

  • Competitive mode: For all those who like to compete and fight for victory.
  • Solidarity mode: The focus here is on fun and togetherness. Individual players and diverse mixed teams are very welcome.

We play in group phases and short knockout rounds so that all teams have plenty of playing time. Each team consists of one goalkeeper and four outfield players, with unlimited substitution options. The games last between 10 and 15 minutes.

An on-site awareness team ensures that all participants feel comfortable and safe.

Join us and make diversity in sport visible!

We look forward to seeing you!

Our Message

Football is diversity!

During the UEFA EURO 2024 Hamburg says hello to people from all around Europe who will come to Germany to have an exciting time this summer. We are thrilled to welcome different cultures and perspectives at the gateway to the world, because for us, Startschuss Queer Sport Hamburg e.V., diversity, respect and tolerance are important elements since the beginning in 1990.

This is the reason why we invite everybody to our Startschuss Diversity Day on 6th July who wants to experience the bounding power of football with fun, joy and love. The ball itself does not care who kicks it. No matter which pronouns, sexual orientation or nationality someone has – it is of no importance. The only thing that matters is the goal and this is the same for everyone.

This summer we show Europe how sport unites people and we present football in all its facets.
