Between 8─12 April 2017 Elbląg witnessed the preliminary round of the UEFA Futsal Cup. The Polish national team with two players from the AZS UG (the University of Gdańsk’s Academic Sports Association) came third and will go on to play for promotion and relegation for the EURO 2018. The AZS UG players ─ Wojciech Pawicki (employee of the UG’s Physical Education and Sports Section and the AZS UG) and Tomasz Kriezel (UG student) played in all three matches of the round.
