Groningen is a true city of sports. Whether you like basketball, volleyball or
football, you’ll find what you’re looking for. But sports are also important for
our over 50.000 students. Many of them are active in for example in field soccer,
court soccer, indoor soccer, American football and rugby, coordinated by the
student sport organization (since 1945). Among those students are also 240
‘top sport students’ who, next to their studies, perform at the highest levels in
their sport

As a lively university city, Groningen has the youngest average population in
the Netherlands. It has a long and turbulent history, which becomes evident
from the historic warehouses, courts and buildings. Groningen is also a city
with nerve, with the most numerous examples of innovative architecture within
its boundaries. It was once proclaimed the city with the best city center in the
Netherlands because of its compactness and charm


The conference takes place at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).

The UMCG is located near the city center and offers great opportunities
to host the WCSF. There are different rooms for parallel as well as
plenary sessions, which are equipped with all necessary audiovisual
resources. The two largest halls, the blue and red hall, can accommodate
400 and 200 participants, respectively. In case of >400 participants, a
livestream between the blue and red hall will be arranged to make sure all
participants have the opportunity to be part of the plenary sessions. Next
to those rooms, several smaller rooms are ideal for presentations and
discussions in smaller groups
