Last EUSA EC meeting to conclude 2021

Executive Committee members of the European University Sports Association (EUSA) met online on December 20, for its last meeting of the year, reviewing the activities and planning ahead.

The meeting started with the general overview and reports by the EUSA President Mr Adam Roczek and EUSA Secretary General Mr Matjaz Pecovnik, highlighting activities in the past period, following the last in-person meeting which was held in Warsaw in November.

Updates on the European Universities Games 2022

Participants then focused their attention to the European Universities Games Lodz 2022, being updated on the preparations and entries, after the event opened registration on December 15. In order to ensure safety and well-being of all participants as well as the local hosts, it was confirmed that all participants will have to be fully vaccinated.

EUSA Executive Committee members conditionally attributed the European Universities Championships for 2025 in 14 sports, and reopened the bidding for the remaining sports for 2025 until March 1, 2022. At the same time, it was also confirmed that Rowing will be featured also as a Championship in 2022 and 2024, as this sport is not on the programme of the European Universities Games in Lodz and Debrecen-Miskolc. The 2022 edition of the European Universities Rowing Championship has already been attributed, while it is still possible to bid for the 2024 edition of the European Universities Rowing Championship, and for the 2025 edition of the European Universities Championships in Badminton, Chess, Golf, Orienteering, Rowing, Rugby 7s and Water Polo.
