RoboCupJunior Austrian Open 2023

In 2023 the RoboCupJunior Austrian Open will take place in Klagenfurt. The 15. RobocupJunior Austrian Open will include the following disciplines: Soccer, onStage, and Rescue (Line and Maze) and will take place in the Lakeside Park and the University of Klagenfurt. The planning is based on the actual Covid-19 situation and will be adapted if the situation changes.

If the number of participants is low, some competitions may be held together or canceled (e.g. Rescue Line Primary and Secondary together). The ranking still takes place in the individual disciplines (e.g. the best three primary teams).

As in previous years the tournament will be used for the qualification for international events. For 2022 the 4th European RoboCupJunior Open in Croatia  ( and the RoboCup 2023 in France ( is planned.

Following the international trend, we will offer simplified Entry Leagues for Rescue and Soccer for the first time for youths up to 14 years of age at the RoboCupJunior Austrian Open 2023.


The rules for the disciplines have already been (practically) finalized and can be found as usual for Rescue, onStage, Soccer. Even if the documents are still officially in process, there will be no more major changes!


In contrast to the international roboCup, where a minimum age of 14 years applies, we want to continue to offer younger teams the opportunity to participate in RoboCupJunior. That is why there are two categories in all Austrian competitions for onStage: Primary for all from 10-14 years and Secondary for all from 14-19 years and for Soccer and Rescue new Entry Leagues for all from 10-14 years. The competitions will be judged separately, but only the best teams of the Secondary competitions can qualify for the international RoboCup. For the RoboCupJunior European Open there is the possibility for all from 10-14 years to qualify in the Entry Leagues.

The following categories will be offered in 2023:

  • onStage Primary (10-14 years)
  • onStage Primary (10-14 years)
  • Rescue Line Entry (10-14 years)
  • Rescue Line (bis 19 years)
  • Rescue Maze Entry (10-14 years)
  • Rescue Maze (bis 19 years)
  • Soccer Entry (10-14 years)
  • Soccer Lightweight Entry (10-14 years)
  • Soccer Lightweight (bis 19 years)
  • Soccer Open (bis 19 years)
