Welcome to Lundaspelen 2018
From my heart I say a very warm welcome to all of you to Lundaspelen 2018!
Today is arrrival day and we are specially welcoming our participants who are staying over at hotels and schoolaccomodations for the next four days! About 4700 players and leaders are arriving today And the rest, another 5 000 players/leaders, are coming tomorrow when the tournament is starting. A very warm welcome to all of you as well.
This year there will be played more than 2100 games with participating teams from 15 different nations who are competing in 22 categories from 8 to 19 years. Great numbers, and talk about numbers – this is also the 40th anniversary of the Lundaspelen tournament, since 1978!
In recent months, we as organizers have worked to improve the tournament so that you as a participant will have a better experience every year! No bad promise, but we hope that this year you will have memories for life and experience that the tournament is open and heartly and that you have come to the greatest handballparty in the world.
Lastly I hope you will particiate in our traditional opening ceremony which takes place, as always, in Sparbanken Skåne Arena and starts at 8 o clock tonight. It will be crowded so show up early. See you there!
Again, most welcome everybody and good luck in the tournament!
See you tomorrow – Game day – no1#
