Welcome addresses from Carlos Videira,
OC President

It is with great pleasure that I address you all as President of the Organizing Committee of the eighth European University Handball Championship.

The University of Minho and it’s Students Union has great experience in the organization of great international university championships. This will be our fifth european university championship. Last year, we organized the twenty-second World University Handball Championship that involved more than 900 persons, among athletes, coaches, officials, referees, organization, volunteers and journalists.

I am confident that unforgettable days wait us in august. This is the perfect place for the european university handball championship. The University of Minho is a mark in university sport through the shared work of the Students’ Union and the Department of Sport. In 2013, EUSA considered us the Best European University for University Sport.

Handball is also a sport with a long history in Minho. The clubs here are some of the best in the country. The university’s Student Union handball team has won gold for the third time in the last European University Games.

Thus, we hope for a big public at the games here in Braga. I am positive that you will take away Portugal, Braga and the University of Minho in your hearts.

Join us!

Carlos Videira

OC President
