Welcome addresses from António Cunha,
University of Minho Rector

University of Minho (UMinho) is proud to host the 8th European Handball Championship and to welcome the delegations from 13 universities of 7 countries.

We expect a great tournament with a high level of competitiveness under a friendly and fair play environment.

The UMinho and AAUM (UMinho Students Union) staff will be fully committed to assure an efficient organization and to provide to athletes, coaches, managers and referees the best conditions for this competition.

I wish to all the teams an exciting championship. Please, enjoy UMinho, exploit Braga and discover Portugal.
