The new Executive Committee of the Czech University Sports Association has been approved following elections via correspondence, with Ms Ivana Ertlova continuing to lead the association as Chairwoman.
The start of a new year brings with it hope for the future, with EUSA hard at work in preparation for this year’s highly-anticipated 5th edition of the European Universities Games, as well as the following editions in the coming years.
While 2020 may have brought a combination of challenges that nobody could have anticipated, it doesn’t mean there won’t be joy, wonder and several events to look forward to in 2021.
The postponement of the European Universities Games to 2021 affected also many international volunteers, who were selected to take part in the event. Their enthusiasm and determination however did not change despite the uncertainties and challenges; they are excited to contribute to the success of the Games and to support the organisation of the EUG in July 2021. The 2021 event and focus on volunteers also got support from the EU and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
A difficult year full of challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic led to the postponement of all major sporting events around the world, including the fifth European Universities Games for the summer of 2021. In less than 200 days, Belgrade will host the largest sports competition in Europe - from July 14 to 27, and the interest of the academic community in coming to the Serbian capital is not waning, on the contrary, it is greater than ever!
One of the aims of the European University Sports Association (EUSA) is to strengthen and support its members - national university sport bodies in Europe. We are happy to announce that in cooperation with the European Universities Games 2021 and with the support of the Club of Donors, we assured a special development fund also this year.
