This campaign is intended to raise funds to sponsor the participation of 12 federated swimmers from the Lisboa Poolsharks team in the Eurogames 2022 in the city of Nijmegen, Netherlands.

This campaign is intended to raise funds to sponsor the participation of 12 federated swimmers from the Lisboa Poolsharks team in the Eurogames 2022 in the city of Nijmegen, Netherlands. The participation cost per athlete is between €700 and €800, so this petition aims to support the team's participation, which will compete on Portugal's behalf.

The Eurogames are the largest multi-sport, inclusive (regardless of gender identity and/or sexual orientation) event in Europe. The current year of 2022 it will take place in the city of Nijmegen, Netherlands. The event comprises 19 sports with an estimated 2,000 athletes participating. More information at www.eurogames2022.eu .

The Lisboa Poolsharks are a constant presence in several national competitions having recently attained 9th place (among 63 participating teams) in the collective ranking at the FPN National Winter Masters Championship 2022. With the same motivation the team intends to represent Portugal in master swimming in this European-wide event, as in previous years.
