World Skate Day 2024

At the foot of the Colosseum to celebrate 100 years of the World Federation of Roller Sports

World Skate is 100 years old. A century of achievements, passion, sport, emotions. A long journey that began with the historic birth of the International Federation on 21 April 1924 in Montreux, Switzerland, until today's arrival at the extraordinary global community of all disciplines on wheels.

The Italian Federation of Roller Sports is celebrating World Skate's birthday with a big party dedicated to the whole world on rollerskates. The setting for the event is the Colle Oppio Skatepark, which has become an iconic place, described by the New York Times as a revolution for the world of youth and sport in Rome.

The event is an open invitation to all fans of roller skating disciplines to take to the streets, with skates, skateboards and scooters, to experience a moment of sharing in the picturesque city park, in the shadow of the Colosseum, and to toast together with food trucks, music, shows and much more.

Performances of inline freestyle, roller dance, figure skating, skateboarding and Flavia Lazzarini's DJ set will choreograph World Skate's birthday.

Top-level performances by the best Italian athletes and the participation of amateurs will accompany the celebration, after a brief welcoming speech by the federal executives. The initiative, launched by the International Federation, will not be exclusive to the city of Rome, but will have a worldwide scope. World Skate Day has in fact been welcomed by many countries around the world with numerous events ready to animate many cities, from Brazil to Portugal to the United States.

World Skate Day will also be an opportunity to remind all about the extraordinary World Skate Games 2024, scheduled to take place in September in Italy and Rome.

Rome will be the protagonist, along with other cities and four regions - Lazio, Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna and Piemonte - of the largest world event dedicated to all skate disciplines with over 12,000 athletes, technicians and delegations from 100 countries and the participation of tens of thousands of fans from all over the globe.
