UBS Kids Cup

For the youngest athletes - throughout the year, throughout Switzerland


UBS has been supporting the young athletes program UBS Kids Cup since 2011. Every year it brings together from across Switzerland some 120,000 children up to the age of 15, who take part in over 850 athletics events.

The "UBS Kids Cup" is a three-part competition in summer, where children and teenagers compete in a triathlon of sprint, long jump and shot put. The best of them will then participate in one of the 24 cantonal finals, where they will compete to obtain a place in the overall Swiss finals in the original Weltklasse stadium in Zurich. The final takes place on September 5, 2015.

The UBS Kids Cup Team is a fun and exciting team competition held indoors during the winter season, and covers the four disciplines of sprint, jumping, biathlon and team cross. In 18 local events and 6 regional finals, participants try to qualify for the final, which is held in spring. The "UBS Kids Cup Team" is held from November to March.

The organizers of Weltklasse Zürich assume the main responsibility for the operational implementation of the competition in collaboration with Swiss Athletics.

Lukas Gähwiler, CEO UBS Switzerland: "With the UBS Kids Cup we are showing children that physical exercise is fun. We are supporting the UBS Kids Cup to show our solidarity with our home market in Switzerland and with athletics. The UBS Kids Cup offers every interested child and teenager throughout Switzerland action-packed sports events."
