GAME Denmark

GAME was founded in Denmark in 2002 with a mission to create lasting social change through youth-led street sports and culture.  GAME’s headquarter is located in the country capital, Copenhagen, where the first asphalted GAME House was introduced in 2010

Currently, GAME Denmark has 19 GAME Zones, where 183 volunteer Playmak-ers lead weekly practices, four GAME Houses that lower the threshold to street sports & culture, a program for psychosocial challenged children and youth, and the MORESTREET program which promotes, supports and grows street sports and culture in Denmark.

Playmaker Program in Denmark

GAME Playmakers are young volunteers, who want to make a difference for children and youth in underserved communities in Denmark or in the GAME Houses.

The Playmakers help organize and lead weekly training sessions in street basketball, street soccer, street dance, parkour and other street sport disciplines.

The Playmaker Program is supported by Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Ministry of Culture in Demark, Det Obelske Familefond, and Ole Kirk’s Fond.

The GAME Houses

GAME has four asphalted street sports houses in Denmark:

GAME House in Copenhagen (DK),
GAME House in Esbjerg (DK)
GAME House in Aalborg (DK) and
GAME House in Viborg (DK).

All the GAME Houses, which are known as GAME Streetmekkas, have given new life to old industrial buildings which compliments the urban street culture architecture.

The GAME Houses are both social hubs for positive communities to unfold and multifunctional spaces to practice street sports in.

It is possible to book one of the GAME Houses in Denmark for different purposes (such as school projects, meetings, events, conferences and teambulding (DK).
