13.6.2024 Airport Transportation

Airport Transportation to accommodation hotels is provided by LOC to those registered with Full Package with Accommodation or to those with a Day Package with Accommodation arriving or departing on the days that airport transportation is provided.

Arrival Airport Transportation

  • Saturday 20th July (20.7.2024)
  • Sunday 21st July (21.7.2024)

Departure Airport Transportatio

  • Sunday 28th July (28.7.2024)

The exact Airport Transportation Schedule depends on the arrival times of teams and there may be a waiting period at the Airport. LOC can only provide transportation to those who have given their arrival and departure information in advance so make sure that your athletes have updated their travel information to the registration system.

If athletes are arriving or departing outside of the given airport transportation days then they are adviced to use public transportation or taxis at their own expense. The Lisbon Metro system is easily accessible at the Airport and takes passengers from Airport to Lisbon City Center. There is a Metro station near the hotel cluster where ETSC office and on-site registration will be located.

6.6.2024 Basketball is cancelled!

Basketball is cancelled!

At the time when registration closed there were only 5 registrations to Basketball and not even one full team from any country. The event is cancelled and the affected athletes are allowed to pick another sport if they want to.

Countries (and athletes) that are effected by this are: Italy (Brecciraoli, Cecconi), Kazakhstan (Orazbek), France (Lepage) and Portugal (Duarte).

28.5.2024 Golf

  • Team Golf partners need to be given at the same time as other partner information. Once registration closes there is a period of two weeks to complete and make changes to sports (LOC will communicate the exact dates).
  • Golf Singles and Team will be played using the same Stableford -system
16.5.2024 Travel insurance

All participants must have personal travel insurance. Also all athletes should have additional insurance for sports if that is possible as many travel insurances do not cover sport injuries.

LOC is obliged to have a general liability insurance in case their actions cause bodily injury, property damage etc. but that does not cover athletes own accidents.

25.3.2024 University accommodation

Dear Team Managers and Country Representatives, there have been a lot of questions about the accommodation but the quantity and diversity of the accommodation options makes it difficult to share more detailed information about each category. Despite that, we would like to share a little bit more information about the University accommodation:

University accommodation is available at two locations; Lisbon and Carcavelos. Single rooms are available on both locations and double rooms are only available in Carcavelos, which is approximately 15 km away from Lisbon city centre. Carcavelos is a very nice beach resort and all athletes/supporters located there will have transportation arranged by the LOC to all Sports Venues and Social Events. Lisbon University accommodation does not have air conditioning but both single and double rooms in Carcavelos have air conditioning. All the Hotel accommodation options are located in Lisbon so for those who have already booked University double room option but want to be located nearer to the Lisbon University Complex need to change their accommodation to hotel accommodation option. The registration fee will be adjusted accordingly.

16.3.2024 ETSC 2024 Rules and Regulations

The Rules and Regulations document is aimed for current and future ETSC organisers (LOC) but also contain a lot of information about the sports, medallig system, age categories etc. so it is also very useful for Team Managers and Country Representative who wish to have deeper understanding of the ETSC events.

11.3.2024 Booking Extra Nights is available!

If you wish to extend your stay beyond the event dates, please fill out the following form to reserve additional nights at your chosen accommodation - Click here to access the Extra Nights Booking Form.

The link is also visible on the Registration -page.

Extra night bookings will be paid by each participant directly to the LOC through a payment link.

11.3.2024 Registration instructions

The Registration Instructions have been updated and now include basic Instructions for editing registrations and making the direct payments to LOC (if this payment method is chosen).

8.3.2024 Payment Method Survey

LOC has worked hard and is now ready to offer a direct payment method where participants could pay their registration fee directly to LOC. This would free Team Managers/National organisation from collecting the registration fees from their team members. The original payment option is still available for countries that want to collect the registration fees from team members and make a collective payment to LOC.

Only one payment method option is available per team so each Team Manager but complete the attached survey and choose which payment method they wish to use. You must consult your National Organisation before giving your answer and read through the explanatory text in the survey.

If you choose the direct payment option then LOC will send you, once or twice a week, a confirmation email to which you have to reply and confirm the new registrations so that LOC can start the direct payment process. You also have to let your team members know that they will receive a payment link via email from LOC (O-Sports).

Please read through the survey and consult your National Organisation before answering the survey and do not hesitate to ask questions if needed.
