Belgrade Serbia Sports
The European Universities Games in Belgrade will be the second largest multisport event ever organized in Serbia, after the 2009 Summer Universiade, which was attended by the Serbian delegation at the opening ceremony today. The official logo of the event was presented to more than 100,000 people in the city centre. Five players were not present at the match between Red Star Belgrade and Serbian first division side Krasnodar.
The event will leave a deep mark on the history of sport in Belgrade and Serbia as a whole, not only in sport, but also in society.
Today, Belgrade is one of the largest cities in the world with a population of more than 1.5 million people, the highest population density of any European city and the second highest number of sports venues. With many sporting events taking place all year round and passionate fans, it offers a great opportunity to experience and participate in Serbia's vibrant sports culture. There are many free basketball courts in Bel Grade and there is always a place for those who want to participate. We are able to successfully host sporting events of the size of the "Belgrade 22."
These include basketball, football, volleyball, football, baseball, tennis, golf, hockey and other sporting events, as well as a variety of cultural events.
The biggest stadium in Serbia is the Rajko Mitic Stadium, better known as Marakana, with a capacity of 55,000 spectators, and the Partizan Stadium, called JNA.
