A city of just over 250,000 people near the Dutch border, Germany's Moenchengladbach will become the centre of the freeski world on December 2nd when it becomes the third stop on FIS Freestyle's 2016/17 big air World Cup tour.
Home to Bundesliga football team Borussia Monchengladbach, the town is no stranger to big time sporting events. And, with a top-tier outdoor venue such as the 12,000-seat SparkassenPark - built to host the 2006 field hockey World Championships and a regular host to internationally celebrated artists such as Green Day, David Guetta, and countess others - Monchengladbach has just the pedigree and the set-up to make their first World Cup big air a hugely successful celebration.
With two huge concerts and World Cup snowboard big air also planned for the Monchengadbach weekend, all the pieces are in place to make the German stop on the big air tour an early season standout.
