Dear Friends, 

We are honoured to invite you to celebrate the 27th of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) congress with us, and in doing so, we offer you a special gift: Sevilla! A melting pot of more than 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. 

“Sport Science in the Heart of Arts” is the theme for the 2022 ECSS congress in Sevilla. 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 make your travel arrangements to allow for time to explore this wonderful city and this region of Spain known as Andalucía. With affordable accommodation, summer weather and countless activities and sites to visit, you will have a memorable time. 

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

The ECSS congress brings about 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 we will have sessions available with interpretation services which will serve our Latin American colleagues. This will be a unique cooperation that aims to brings new partnerships and friends to the ECSS community. Other unique initiatives for the congress includes a congress mascot which you have the opportunity to design and win some fabulous prizes.  We also have planned additional activities that will bring the research community closer to the business community. More information 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!
