Representatives from the European University Sports Association (EUSA) have met with the Serbian Prime Minister ahead of next year’s European Universities Games in Belgrade.
Ana Brnabić met with EUSA President Adam Roczek, along with other dignitaries from the organisation and the Serbian capital, to discuss plans for next year's event, due to take place between July 12 and 25.
The aim of the meeting was to discuss the progress made by the EUG2020 Organising Committee so far, while discussing what further action is needed over the coming months.
Brnabić reaffirmed her full backing of the event and Serbia’s commitment to organise the Games in the best way possible.
Roczek and EUSA Secretary General Matjaz Pecovnik also discussed the progress report of the Organising Committee with EUG2020 director Predrag Jušković.
EUSA representatives and Organising Committee members also visited the Basketball Federation of Serbia, meeting Dejan Tomašević, secretary general of the national governing body.
Basketball, in both full sided and 3x3 formats, is one of the 20 sports on the programme at EUG2020.
