Dear Eurospital-Friends,


Football is coming home is the slogan of the 27th edition of Eurospital, of course in England!!

Eurospital 2019 is approaching and in august we are guests of the University of Nottingham, town of Robin Hood, staying at Cavendish Hall.

I am happy to welcome the team of Cardiff, Wales as newcomer, hopefully for all coming  years.

Last april we had a very succesfull general captains meeting in Venlo, Netherlands and I like to thank VieCuri Medisch Centrum for their hospitality.

A lot of changes have been approved by all present captains of some 12 nations.

Some important rules have been approved as changing  the age of players and the check of all players on Friday before the tournament.

It was also the last captains meeting with me as chair because I believe it is time for a change after 20 years. But I don’t leave Eurospital as President without any future perspective as I agreed with organisers for 2020 san Marino, 2021 Klagenfurt, 2022 Bratislava and 2023 Zagreb.

I wish Chris Bosshardt  and friends all the best with organizing and hosting all health service workers .

Enjoy Eurospital 2019  and I like to end with a Robin Hood quote as never givin’up:

“Rise and rise again until lambs become lions”


Joop Vossen, President Eurospital
