European Universities Games Zagreb – Rijeka 2016


Throughout 15 days in July 2016, 5000 students from 45 European countries and 250 different universities will compete in 21 different sports and will be part of the most beautiful sports story ever told in Croatia!

Our vision is to organize the Games which will through their significance become a catalyst for sports and social change, and provide strong support to the development of university sports in Europe and Croatia as well as improve the quality of life of Croatian students in general.

Furthermore, by organizing the most successful Games to date,we will revive the vision of the EUG 2016 as an inspiration and central point of development of the EUSA. We base this vision on our own experience – the Universiade in ’87 set some new standards in relation to FISU events, and even today it is mentioned as the turning point of World university sports.

Our vision does not end with the organization of the EUG 2016, but rather our long-term objective is to establish one of the most significant social-academic events in Europe.

By setting a realistic financial framework based on sustainability and feasibility, we have the vision, strength, desire, ideas and enthusiasm to make the EUG 2016 one of the turning points in the development of the EUSA and overall European university sports.
