At the first AURORA sports meeting, during the Aurora Biannual in Norwich, England (November 2017), the participants expressed their interest to initiate a sports competition for Aurora students. With the aim to create a better awareness about the advantages of the Aurora Universities Network also among our students and to ensure a platform where the sport services of the Aurora could share experiences and best practices.
The AURORA Sport Days are organized each year in April from Wednesday to Friday at the University of Antwerp. During these three days, each Aurora member is free to participate in a program including an Aurora Sports Workshop for sports professionals on Wednesday, an Aurora dinner for students and professionals on Thursday evening and the complete sports and event program from Wednesday to Friday of the PCU Games for student teams.
The PCU Games ensure a sports and events program for 30 to 40 universities and university colleges worldwide. The main objective is to offer students a platform where sport is considered as a valuable instrument to develop international interaction and experience, with emphasis on Fair Play and Universal Friendship. Men’s futsal, volleyball and basketball, and women’s futsal, basketball and volleyball are programmed. The organization itself is handled in cooperation with Panathlon International, as association recognized by the International Olympic Committee.
