Present on behalf of EUSA in Lodz were Sports Manager Mr Miha Zvan, International Relations Officer Ms Lea Medvesek and EUSA EUG2022 Consultant Mr Besim Aliti, while present on behalf of the hosts were various members of the organising committee, led by EUG2022 Project Coordinator Ms Tatsiana Andrushka.

The delegation was honoured to begin the visit with a meeting with the Vice-Rector for Student Affairs at Lodz University of Technology Mr Witold Pawlowski, following which various inspection visits were conducted at several venues around Lodz which will be utilised at next year’s Games.

The Local Organising Committee was able to present an update on their activities and progress, following which several discussions took place regarding the sports programme and schedule, the cooperation between the Organising Committee and national associations as well as the upcoming EUSA-EUG2022 Convention.
