My warmest welcome to all participants of the European Universities Championships 2023.
The European Universities Championships, as previous editions have proved, are a wonderful occasion to be together and experience the beauty of university sport.
I am pleased that a great number of students and officials, sharing their love for sport, respecting Fair Play, competing in truly university sport spirit will meet in many cities across the Europe.
During such events we do more than just sport – we broaden our horizons, get to know other cultures, we promote a healthy society, we stand on the side of peace, respecting and celebrating diversity.
Being the Organizer of the Championship is challenging but at the end rewarding as well.
I want to express my appreciation to the Organizing Committees, its Partners and the volunteers who give their crucial contribution to the success of the event. My gratitude extends to the National, Regional and Local Authorities for their auspices of this event.
I believe that the European Universities Championships will bring the participants unforgettable experiences and lots of personal achievements. I hope all of you will enjoy your time, and life-long friendships between European Students will be legacy of all the events.
With wishes of good luck, I welcome you on behalf of EUSA to the European Universities Championships 2023!
President of the European University Sports Association (EUSA)
