Dear sport friends,
Serbia and its capital city Belgrade are privileged with the fact that we will host the fifth edition of European University Games in 2020. We shall host more than six thousand student athletes from all around Europe that will have an opportunity to meet our culture, tradition, beauties and historical monuments of Belgrade, but most of all to feel warmth and hospitality of people who live in Belgrade, which is something that we are widely known for. That is why we owe great appreciation to European University Sports Association which recognized Serbia as a part of the European family and reliable partner, by giving us the role of hosts and given us the trust that we will, I am confident, completely justify by impeccable organization of this event.
With all the capacities we possess we are more than ready to write one more brilliant page in the rich history of Belgrade as the top host and organizer of big sport events and to justify Serbia´s image of stable and reliable partner. Fifth European University Games will be used also to promote all the values that EUSA committedly strives for as well as true sport values and also to build bridges of friendship and breaking barriers between young people.
To all the competitors and our dear guests, I will wish pleasant stay in Belgrade and that all the memories they gain be lifelong memories, that will impel them to come to Belgrade again and again. Also, to all participants of the fifth edition of European Universities Games I wish best of luck and success on the sporting ground in the spirit of fair-play.
Dear Students, athletes, let Belgrade be the place where you will achieve at least a part of your dreams.
Prime Minister of Serbia,
