Coimbra will host three EUC 2017

A year prior from the European Universities Games, Coimbra, the host city of the EUG 2018, will also host three European Universities Championships in the sports of Judo, Karate and Taekwondo. The three competitions will take place from the 25th to the 27th of July. This is one of the 19 European Universities Championships 2017 (EUC 2017), where 19 different sports promote the competition to find the best European athletes and teams in Universities Sport.


The competition will happen in three venues that will also feature in EUG Coimbra 2018: Halls 1 (Karate), 2 (Taekwondo) and 3 (Judo) of Coimbra’s University Sport Complex, in the city centre. All venues were renewed in the last months and are ready to receive the more than 600 athletes that will compete in these Championships. The EUC’s 2017 will also have about 150 officials and will have both male and female competition. 50 volunteers will also be key to the success of the event.


About 27 European countries and 230 universities of these countries will compete to become champions of these three European Universities Championships to be held in Coimbra.
