Dear Friends, 

We are honoured to invite you to celebrate the 27th Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS), and in doing so, we offer you a special gift: Sevilla! A melting pot of 3,000+ years’ history, a city full of art, culture, cuisine, leisure and sports. The city looks forward to welcoming sport scientists from all parts of the world with open arms, to enjoy this unique ECSS congress.  

The theme for ECSS 2022 in Sevilla is “Sport Science in the Heart of Arts”. Make the most of your time before or after the congress and admire the Guadalquivir River, various art forms, diverse cultures, the numerous historic quarters and above all, our people. We suggest that you plan your travel to allow time to explore this wonderful city and region of Spain known as ‘Andalucía’. With affordable accommodation, beautiful summer weather and countless activities and sites to visit, you will have a memorable time.  

Additionally, the Sevilla Convention Bureau has kindly offered free gift vouchers to all congress delegates, including public transportation tickets, discounts at restaurants, museums, flamenco shows, recreational parks, cafés, pubs and various shops. We have also engaged with a local tour operator to provide discounted trips before and after the congress.  

ECSS 2022 brings a new congress model, which will see an enhanced programme built with even higher scientific standards and quality measures, which will all take place in the world-class congress venue, FIBES. We have selected an outstanding, international panel of experts, bringing their specialised knowledge to the plenary, and invited sessions. Prior to the congress, there will be a satellite dedicated to football, where the most reputable researchers in the industry will present their topics and experiences.  

We are also working hard on ‘inclusion’ at the congress and for the first time ever we will have sessions available with interpretation services for our Latin American colleagues. This will be a unique development that aims to bring new partnerships and friends to the ECSS community. Other unique initiatives for the congress include a congress mascot which you all have the opportunity to design and be in to win fabulous prizes. We have also planned additional activities that will bring the research community closer to the business community. More information will be available on these in due course. 

We cordially invite the sport science community to make a wish and come to ECSS Sevilla 2022!  

Nos vemos en Sevilla! / See you in Seville!

Your Congress Co-Presidents,

África Calvo Lluch, General Director of Sports
