About the Swiss Judo Open

The Swiss Judo Open (SJO) is the tournament with the largest number of foreign participants to be held in Switzerland. The SJO has been recognised by the European Judo Union as an official European Judo Cup event since 2015. Each year, there are around 300 athletes from 25 nations competing for medals.

Enhancing judo’s standing in Swiss sports

The SJO offers members of the Swiss Judo and Ju-Jitsu Federation the opportunity to witness top-class international judo in their home country. The event is significant not only for Swiss judo, but also for Swiss sports in general, as it is a window to top-level performances in a sport that does not usually feature prominently on the Swiss sports horizon despite the fact that it is practiced by over 48,000 dedicated athletes in Switzerland.
