Dear Sports Friends,
It is with great pleasure to welcome you on the official website of the EYOF 2017 in Győr.
It is a great honour for Hungary and the City of Győr that it got the organisational rights of the 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival. This bid is of an outstanding importance for whole Hungary, because the Olympic Games and the Olympic Spirit have always played an emphasised role in the history of our country. It is well proven by the Medal Table of the London 2012 Olympics on that our small country reached the notable 9th place.
The possibility of organising the 2017 EYOF might further strengthen the significance of sport and the rising generation training. It will be a great pleasure for us to welcome the whole Olympic Family to the City of Győr in 2017 and to show them the values of Hungary and Győr. In the previous period together with my colleagues we were working hard on the bid documentation, and now, after the decision of december 2012 we continue the work with the organisational tasks.
I hope that all participants, athletes, the Olympic Family and the fans will be enriched with unforgettable experiences in the City of Győr. Let’s meet in Győr in 2017! Till than, let the countdown begin!
Mayor of the City of Győr
President of the Hungarian Olympic Committee
