The 5th European University Games were originally scheduled to be held in July this year in Belgrade. However, because of the outbreak of the coronavirus and its effects, the Games had to be postponed to next year. The new date is July 2021.
The organizers of the event have agreed to set a new date for the Games to protect the health and well-being of the student-athletes, volunteers, spectators, and everyone involved in the competition's organization. According to the organizers, the European University Sports Association (EUSA) and the Organizing Committee of the 5th edition of the Games, this decision had to be made due to the ongoing circumstances regarding the spread of the novel coronavirus.
As a reminder, the capital of Serbia was getting prepared to welcome approximately 6000 student-athletes from all around Europe. Students were supposed to compete in 19 sports, including 2 Paralympic sport disciplines. To learn more about the Games, visit the official webpage of the event.
