President of the Portuguese Athletics Federation welcome Message Ribeira Brava 2019

Dear all



Ribeira Brava, a municipality from Madeira Islands shall host, once again, the European Combined Events Team Championship First and Second League.

Many reasons will contribute to make this an exceptionally attractive Sports Event that is sure to provide Athletes, Officials and Coaches many unforgettable moments and experiences.

First of all, we shall be able to count on the impeccable organizational skills and the deep commitment the Madeira Athletics Association has demonstrated in all the numerous events it has organized throughout the years.

One must also point out the outstanding technical conditions offered by Ribeira Brava´s Sports Centre , a 60000 sqm, 2300 all-seater stadium surrounded by an amphitheater of jagged mountains that will  provide the perfect setting for an unforgettable event.

And last, but certainly not least, the magic of Madeira Island, and in particular of the Municipality of Ribeira Brava.

It is our strong belief that the unique natural beauty of the 'island of eternal spring' with its  lush vegetation, together with the hospitality of its inhabitants and  the delicious local gastronomy, are the ingredients for a perfect weekend that will translate in outstanding Technical Results.

All the members of this deeply committed organizing team will be rewarded with the participants ‘satisfaction.


We look forward to welcoming you!


Jorge Vieira

President of the Portuguese Athletics Federation
