In anticipation of hosting the 2027 Archery World Championships, World Archery this week completed an on-site evaluation of Nyborg, Denmark's potential as the host city. The visit, which included an inspection of facilities and discussions with the Danish bid team, sets the stage for Nyborg's ambitious bid to bring the global event to its historic and picturesque locale.
World Archery's representative, Thomas Aubert, was greeted with the stunning autumnal setting of Nyborg, home to the impressive Nyborg Castle – a proposed venue for the event's finals.
The Danish bid, backed by the combined efforts of the city's mayor, the national federation's president, and the CEO of Sport Event Denmark, provided a detailed presentation that not only highlighted the city’s readiness but also its commitment to sustainability and innovation in sporting event hosting.
During his visit, Thomas Aubert noted, "Especially Nyborg Castle is a beautiful place and could be a very nice setting for the finals. In relation to the city’s plans for renewing the castle and the interesting story behind it, it could really create a spectacular environment for not just the competition but the whole event around the World Archery Championships.
"It is a strong selling point for Nyborg." He thus emphasized the potential of the city's historical elements and ongoing renovations at the castle to enhance the championship experience for all.
With a history of organizing international events and an offer of a venue that combines historical significance with modern event hosting principles, Denmark’s bid focuses on a responsible and technologically advanced approach to the championships.

Together with the National Federation of Archery, Sport Event Denmark, and Destination Fyn, Nyborg is poised to provide a memorable and impactful venue for the World Archery Championships.
"Denmark prides itself on its tradition of hosting international events that are intimate, secure, and aligned with the future of the sports they represent," added Lars Lundov, CEO of Sport Event Denmark.
In his closing remarks, Thomas Aubert said with a smile: "We have four candidates, so the chances are 25 percent for Nyborg. Just like any other candidate."
