Miskolc, Hungary: July 16-23, 2017
The European Universities Basketball Championship 2017 was held in the city of Miskloc, Hungary, with over 380 participants, representing 25 universities from 16 countries, and with 16 teams taking part in the men's competition, accompanied by 12 teams in the women's.
The championship was organised by the Hungarian University Sports Federation (MEFS) in collaboration with the Hungarian Basketball Federation and Miskloc Municipality. MEFS has already organised successful European sport events before, such as the European Universities Karate and Rugby 7s Championships, and the World University Orienteering Championships also in Miskolc, demonstrating the immense love for sports of this town. The EUSA Executive Committee was officially represented by Mr Bill Thompson and the EUSA technical delegate is Mr Peter George, assisted by Mrs Pascale Weiwers.
The gold in the men’s competition was awarded to the University of Bologna (ITA), winning the final match against the University of Seville (ESP). In the women’s competition, the first place was gained by the University of Strasbourg (FRA), who won an exciting final against Singidunum University (SRB).
The Organising Committee took great care of the participants providing a rich programme of social activities along with the championship, which allowed the students to discover the city of Miskloc, its surroundings, Hungarian customs, as well as making new friends from different universities. Also, a daily bulletin was published by the organiser, providing all the useful information about the championship, various practicalities, and the city as well as several engaging interviews.
The EUSA flag was passed, at the end of the event, to the representative of the Organising Committee of the next European Universities Basketball Championship, which will be held in Poznan, Poland, in 2019. Basketball will also be one of the sports in the European Universities Games 2018 in Coimbra, Portugal.
