Welcome addresses from Filipa Godinho,
FADU President

On behalf of the Portuguese University Sport Federation (FADU Portugal) it is a great pleasure to receive all the participants in the 8th European Universities Handball Championship, this year in Portugal.

During the month of August, all participants will have the opportunity to meet, not only the city of Braga, but also the culture and traditions of our country. So, I challenge all of you to come and to learn and take more from here.

During the competition, I hope that all the athletes and officials have great moments in Portugal with the best conditions for an unforgettable experience and sports success, always honoring the regulations, opponents and all participants.

For the partners, volunteers and guests, I am sure that it will be an event with a large organizational quality and certainly an added value to all.

Once again, this organization it’s an example of cooperation between a group of entities to make this event possible. With the vast experience and success gained in the previous organizations, all the conditions are gathered to make this happen in the best possible away.

For this, the UMinho Students Union (AAUM) and University of Minho (UM) are ready with FADU to welcome everyone for this memorable university sports event, built on the values of ethics and fair play and reactivating the true spirit of university sports.

Good luck to everyone, welcome to Portugal, welcome to the 8th European Universities Handball Championship and in the end, may the best one’s win!

Filipa Godinho,
FADU President
