European Universities Competition 2013
EUSA (European Universities Sports Association) events are ’tournament winners’ tournaments for Universities and allow the top Universities in the BUCS Competitions to compete against the best Universities in Europe. BUCS are the EUSA member for Great Britain.
Entries to EUSA events are made as a specific University, and all entrants will represent their University in EUSA competition, as opposed to BUCS or ’Great Britain’.
EUSA events take place each year, and alternate annually between the EUSA Games (a single multi-sport event) and the EUSA Championships (a series of single-sport events)
EUSA events 2013 will take place as follows :
• Badminton 05-11 May; Sweden
• Basketball 21-28 July; Croatia
• Football 23-30 June; Spain
• Futsal 21-28 July; Spain
• Golf 17-21 September; France
• Judo 22-25 August; Portugal
• Karate 19-21 July; Hungary
• Rowing 05-08 September; Poland
• Rugby 7s 14-16 June; Bulgaria
• Table Tennis 19-23 June; Turkey
• Tennis 02-08 September; Montenegro
• Volleyball 23-30 June; Cyprus
General qualification for the EUSA Championships is limited to a Top 4 (semi-final) finish in the relevant BUCS Championship, and BUCS will sanction the highest-placing University that wishes to compete in each sport *
* Entries in Judo, Karate & Rowing will be ‘composites’ formed of the BUCS Champions in each individual category
BUCS will coordinate entries and administration with competing Universities. BUCS will submit the initial General Entries to EUSA for Great Britain entrants, and all entry queries should come via BUCS in the first instance.
BUCS does not allocate any funding for sending teams to EUSA events, and the full cost is to be paid by the competing University. This will include all travel costs, the per diem cost of 65 euros per person per day, the entry fee of 30 euros per person, and provision of referees.

Please note the EUSA Regulations for 2014 have been updated with the introduction of the age limit of the athletes (17-28). Participating athletes need to be between 17 and 28 years old in the year of the competition (with the year of the birth taken into account).
The age limit will therefore not yet apply to participants of the 2013 European Universities Championships.
