On 21 January 2022, the countdown to the Winter European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) 2023 was officially kicked off by President of the region Massimiliano Fedriga and President of the Organising Committee Maurizio Dunnhofer.

Marking 365 days to go to the biggest multi-sport event in Europe, the clock was switched on at the premises of the region in Trieste as well as at the EYOF FVG 2023 headquarters in Amaro, Udine.

From 21 to 28 January 2023, the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia will host young athletes aged 14 to 18 who will compete in thirteen sports disciplines.

With 11 ski resorts and competition venues, the EYOF FVG 2023 will also be an important springboard to the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan-Cortina.

The representatives from the EOC Coordination Commission will soon return to the region for another inspection tour of the competition venues and host cities.

At the end of March, a delegation from the EYOF FVG 2023 organising committee will travel to Vuokatti in Finland (host of the EYOF 2022) for the handover ceremony.
