The European University Sports Federation (EUSA) is proud to confirm its new partner, the European Powerlifting Federation (EFP), after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two sports associations.
The signing of the official document to confirm the new partnership took place on September 22, in the presence of President Mr Arnulf Wahlstrom and Secretary General Mr Ralph Farquharson on behalf of EPF, and President Mr Adam Roczek and Secretary General Mr Matjaz Pecovnik on behalf of EUSA.
Some of the main objectives of the Memorandum of Understanding between EUSA and EPF include strengthening general cooperation and partnership between the two organisations; working together in activities and projects promoting university sport in Europe; promoting and contributing to the development of competitions in Powerlifting disciplines among students; searching for wider synergies and new opportunities arising from the cooperation; encouraging gender equality in university sport while promoting sustainability, fair play and integrity within the sport.
The first joint venture deriving from the new partnership will be the organisation and promotion of the second European Open University Classic Powerlifting Cup, taking place in Merignac, France from April 22-24, 2021. Details of the competition will be confirmed in due course.
The Memorandum of Understanding with EPF showcases EUSA’s progress and continued interest in partnerships and collaborations in the sporting sphere, with Powerlifting adding to the wide range of sports offered in the EUSA programme.
