USWA sets focus on 2019

The third edition of the Urban Sports Week Amsterdam, that would have taken place from 13 to 15 July 2018 in the RAI, is cancelled. After a great second edition last year, the organization believes that the planned event for this year does not match with the growth and ambition that USWA together with the urban communities involved, has set as its goal. Therefore, they have decided to not organize an event this year and to focus on a high-quality edition in 2019 in Amsterdam.

Marnix Drysdale of TIG Sports, organizer USWA: “We aim to provide Urban Sports with a wide stage, to highlight both the top and wide sports facets in an innovative way. In the past two years we have successfully done this in our opinion. In cooperation with our partners and the local urban communities, we have tried to prepare a worthy third edition. Unfortunately, we have to inform that this year it will not be possible to organize an event that meets the standard that we are trying to achieve with USWA. We will now completely focus on the summer of 2019. We already have a beautiful location in Amsterdam in mind and will confidently proceed with the preparation of the event."

From 13 - 15 July, the NK Beach soccer and the Pro League 3x3 Basketball will continue as independent events. They will take place at the RAI in Amsterdam.
