Erasmus Student Network Finland (ESN Finland) partners up with SELL Student Games 2016, organized in Tampere, Finland in next May. SELL Student Games is an international sports event for all the higher education students from all over the world. The event is organized every year alternately in Finland, Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania. Every year, the event gathers around 1500 student athletes from all over the world to compete and to have a great international experience.
The SELL organizing committee warmly welcomes ESN Finland to the crew. “Cooperation with ESN Finland is a huge possibility to make this event even more international and to have more people from different backgrounds to join the Games”, Markus Karppanen, the Vice-President of the organizing committee of the SELL Student Games 2016. “With the help of ESN Finland we can reach more students and have more participants in the Games. Also this cooperation is very vital to have more volunteers with linguistic abilities for the Games”, comments Saila Huhtiranta, Secretary General of the SELL Student Games 2016.
The aim of the cooperation is to market the SELL Games tradition widely. Exchange students are a great way to spread the spirit of the Games to other countries all around the world with good memories and experience from the previous SELL Games. “We are very happy to get involved in this project!” says the the board of the ESN Finland. “The SELL Student Games represents many of the same values as we do and it is a great possibility for us to bring students from different backgrounds together in a fun and active way. We hope that this is the beginning of a long-lasting cooperation!”
The SELL Student Games will be organized in Tampere, Finland on 13-15th May 2016. Sports in the SELL Games vary every year; in 2016 there will be 18 different sports. Participants of the SELL Games come from all over the world; from the Baltic countries, Russia, European countries, and even from China. In the Games there are no age limits or qualification requirements. All the students worldwide are welcome to represent their university and compete in the SELL Games.
