Registration opens for the European Universities Games 2018 in Coimbra

The Portuguese city is set to host Europe’s largest multi-sport event of 2018 


The European University Sports Association (EUSA) opened registrations for the European Universities Games Coimbra 2018 on 15 December. Next year, between the 15 to 20 of July, over 4,000 participants from Europe’s leading sport universities are expected to compete in 13 sports in the student city of Coimbra, Portugal.


The European Universities Games Coimbra is set to be Europe’s largest university sport event in 2018 and the largest multi-sport event ever hosted in Portugal as EUSA anticipates 4,000 participants from Europe’s leading sport universities to compete.









The European Universities Games Coimbra 2018 sports programme includes Badminton, Basketball, 3x3 Basketball, Football, Futsal, Handball, Judo, Rowing, Rugby Sevens, Table Tennis, Para Table Tennis, Tennis and Volleyball. In addition, Canoe Sprint joins the 2018 Games programme as a demonstrative sport. All sports at the European Universities Games Coimbra 2018 feature competitions for men and women.


Alongside the sport competitions, the games focus on educational and social aspects of university sport in Europe, featuring conferences and workshops in the topics such as Anti-Doping and Dual Career, as well as a Rectors Conference. The European Universities Games are licensed by EUSA and are supported by FISU. The Games also received support from the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.


The legacy the European University Games carries into 2018 is visibly seen from the strong support of higher institutions across Europe and how the local community is aiding the development of University Sports in Coimbra.  The Portuguese city should be an ideal host to the Games as it combines the best of history and the future, with its place on the UNESCO World Heritage List within a young and vibrant student city.
