The European University Sports Associations (EUSA) is celebrating a new edition of the European Universities Games, that will take place in Coimbra (Portugal) from 15 to 28 July 2018.
The event will gather 4,000 athletes from different universities that will compete in 13 different disciplines such as Badminton, Basketball, Football, Judo, Tennis, Volleyball among others.
In addition to the sports competitions, the European Universities Games will include workshops and conferences about Anti-Doping, Inclusion, Dual Career and other aspects of sports within the university environment.
The initiative aims to involve more students into the practice of sports and also transmit their inherent positive values such as teamwork, tolerance, fair play, unit, social inclusion and the value of practice.
The European Universities Games have the support of the International University Sports Federation (FISU) and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
