The European Team Championships 1 st League is being held in Sandnes from the 9-11th of August 2019. Sverdrup Steel is proud to a sponsor of the event.

Eleven nations will be competing against each other in 18 different disciplines and two relays. The winner of 1st league will be promoted to the Super League. Athletics is normally an individual sport, but at the ETCH it is a competition between nations and their selected athletes.

The teams competing are Belarus, Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, The Nederland’s, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey. Weather Russia will be allowed to compete is yet to be decided.

Sverdrup Steel is thrilled to be in a position where we are able to contribute to the realization of an event like this. Somehow, our contribution seems to pale in comparison to all the “dugnad” (volunteer) work that has and will be carried out by a great many number of volunteers to get this team championship in athletics to run smoothly.

We are very much looking forward to experience the thrill at Sandnes Stadium watching some of Europe’s best athletes competing and giving their all representing their countries.

The hope is that we can contribute to help inspire young athletes to find joy in athletics. So that they can benefit from the sense of achievement and comradery that comes with doing sports, no matter the level.
