The XXXII SELL Student Games 2016 will be held in Tampere, Finland. The games are organized by TUrVoKe ry in co-operation with the Student Union of Tampere University of Technology, Tampere University of Technology and the city of Tampere.
The SELL Games are one of Europe’s largest multisport events for students. The last SELL Games in Tarto, Estonia, had 1700 participants representing 78 different universities from 15 different countries. The games are open to university students from all over the world, but the games are organized by the SELL countries Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
“Organizing the SELL Games in Tampere 2016 is a great thing for students in Tampere. The SELL Games will bring a lot of positive coverage for Tampere University of Technology and the city of Tampere,” says Outi Potila, President of TurVoKe ry.
“Each year the SELL games gather a significant number of international students to have fun with sports. We are very happy that Tampere is going to organize the games,” adds Bennie Wardi, Vice-president of the Finnish Student Sports Federation.
The first SELL Games were organized in 1923. The tradition broke off because of the Second World War, but it was continued in 1998. The games were organized in Finland in 2004, 2008 and 2012.
