Dear Sports Friends,
It is with great pleasure to welcome you on the official website of the European Youth Olympic Festival 2017 in Győr.
It has been a great honour for Hungary and the City of Győr to obtain the rights to host the 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival. This opportunity to organise one of the biggest Olympic events bears an outstanding importance for the whole country as the Olympic Games and the Olympic Spirit have always played an emphasised role in the history of Hungary. This is best proven by the fact that in Rio de Janiero, at the XXXI Olympic Games, Hungary has earned its 500th Olympic Medal.
There is not much time left until the beginning of the first ever Olympic event hosted in Hungary with the participation of all the 50 countries of Europe. We are hoping to create a unique Olympic atmosphere with a compact event. This will be ensured by the closeness of venues, the side events we are planning for the participants, and the friendliness and welcoming milieu of our city.
We are going to welcome whole Europe in July and our aim is to be great hosts. We would like to show that Hungary is able to organise such a complex multi-sport event as the EYOF. Furthermore, it is our unconcealed goal to introduce some of the countless values and beauties of Győr and Hungary to our guests.
I hope that all athletes, members of the European Olympic Family, and fans will be enriched with unforgettable experiences in our city. Let’s meet in Győr this Summer!
Until then, I wish you joyful browsing through our webpage.
Mayor of the City of Győr
President of the Hungarian Olympic Committee
