Press Release: ECSG Salzburg 2019
The European Company Sport Games (ECSG) 2019 were held in Salzburg from the 26th to 30th June. Over 7,000 athletes from 22 countries joined the sport festival and shared moments of joy, friendship and fair play. For five days, the city of Salzburg transformed to the centre of company sport.
The ECSG is a major multisport event in the Company Sport Calendar, taking place every two years since 1977. Over the years, the number of the participants and the magnitude of the Games have grown drastically from 800 participants to more than 7,500.
The Board from the Hellenic Organisation from Company Sport and Health (HOCSH) also travelled to Salzburg to support the Corinth Canal, the only Company representing Greece at the ECSG 2019 with its football team.
HOCSH is the authorised member of both the European and the World Federation for Company Sport and the organiser of the 3rd World Company Sport Games (WCSG) 2020. It was established in 2011, with the aim of promoting an active lifestyle, health and social interaction for employees within an active workplace. Its mission is to actively contribute to the evolution of the athletic ideals and sport culture in Greece and abroad.
It is a huge step for the mission of HOCSH, that Greece is welcoming its turn to host athletes and companies from not only Europe, but from across the world in Athens for the 3rd WCSG. Seeing the spirit of Company Sport growing across companies and countries is a major success for the young history of the WCSG.
