Let’s move together! With this motto, University Sports Festival Budapest was organized for the 4th time by Eötvös Loránd University, ESN ELTE and BEAC (Budapest University Athletics Club) on the 29th of November. Students of 11 higher education institutions of Budapest were training together at the festival in ELTE sports hall.

The main goal of the festival was to provide a community experience for foreign students studying in Budapest and to connect young people of different universities and colleges from all around the world.

65 nations were represented at the event: students of Colombia, Laos, Qatar, Finland and Belgium were doing sports together!

Students had the possibility to try several individual sports besides volleyball and futsal championships, such as different types of combat sports, aerobics, airflow yoga, ballance training, polefitness, functional circuit training and chess.

Belly dancers and cheerleaders of BEAC presented a spectacular show.

Universities were competing against each-other in the grand final, where the Semmelweis University could stand on top of the podium and became the champion of University Sports Festival Budapest 2019.

For ELTE and BEAC it is very important to organize programs that are attractive to foreign students as well. Nowadays approximately 500 foreign students do sports in the sports club of ELTE.
