On 25-27 April 2021, the EOC Coordination Commission (CoCom) for the European Games 2023 met in Antalya, Turkey and held discussions with European Athletics (EA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and TOP Olympic Partner ATOS.

Led by Chair Hasan Arat, the EOC CoCom discussed with the respective parties their possible collaboration for the organisation of Krakow-Malopolska 2023.

The meetings were also attended by a delegation from Poland, which was headed by Polish Olympic Committee Andrzej Krasnicki.

In particular, the EOC CoCom held constructive talks with EA Board, also in Antalya for meetings, centred on the format of the athletics competitions at the 3rd European Games. While they also met with representatives from Atos to explore how they can support EOC on its Digital Transformation.

Finally, an online meeting was held with EBU to agree on some important steps forward related to the host broadcasting and TV rights, which will potentially bring the Games to the widest audience yet both in Europe and elsewhere around the globe.

More details will follow in the coming weeks.
