Hello to all players, clubs, team members, and tourists from Europe!
I am Pedro Costa, the General Chair of the Organizing Committee of Lisbon, from Portugal.
Firstly, I want to thank the Portuguese Association of the Deaf for hosting the event. I also give big thanks to the City Council for their support. Thirdly, I am thanking the Portuguese League of Sports for Deaf for their support. Lastly, my thanks to the Board of Deaf Champions League for approving us as the host.
Now I am going to tell you a little about Lisbon. It’s beautiful and its center is easy for all Europeans to come over. The airport is very close to the city center. Transports are very easy, there are a metro station and buses in the airport, close to everything else in the center. The hotels are also good and well-situated in the zone, as well as the halls.
The easiness of transports, such as the metro and buses, for 24-hours, makes it easy to move around, with enough time to visit the city.
I hope all of you, clubs and tourists, come to our city. These are hard times, with the COVID-19, but let’s hope it disappears soon.
Finally, let me say – Welcome to Lisbon, Portugal, 2021!
