Today in Frankfurt, the Athletic Federation of Serbia’s delegation presented Belgrade as the next host city of the forthcoming European Athletics Indoor Championships in 2017.

This is considered as the great diplomatic coup for the Athletics Federation of Serbia; AFS ousted the chief competitors – Turkey and Poland and managed to secure the majority of votes from the European Board.

“The contract with the European Athletics is already signed by the president of AFS Veselin Jevrosimovic and General Director of EA Christian Milc, as well as the president of EA Hansjor Wirc. This will be the biggest sports event ever organized in the history of Serbian athletics. We are very proud of the fact that Belgrade is to be the host. Preparations for the European Indoor Athletics Championships 2017 starts on Monday,” said secretary general of AFS Slobodan Brankovic.
