"The City of Križevci has been co-operating with Plazma Youth Sports Games for many years, the cooperation is very correct and we will continue this year too. We invest greatly in sport, in the total amount of HRK 2 million every year’’.

Plazma Youth Sports Games have been organizing sports competitions for children aged 6 to 18 for the 22nd year. Apart from propagating sports and sporting lifestyles through their programs, they are actively involved in educating children on all spheres of sustainable development. Plazma Youth Sports Games are the most massive sports manifestation in Europe that provides for children of elementary and high school age to participate in top-ranked competitions in 10 sports (small football, Kinder basketball tournament, HEP handball tournament, volleyball, Croatia Tennis, table tennis, beach volleyball, chess, bartender and athletics) free of charge.

‘’Plazma Youth Sports Games are proud of their long tradition of organizing sports competitions for children and young people, and for the new season we also announce the start of an Erasmus + Sports European Union educational program that will include local schools. Our Sponsor is also the Central State Sports Office that has helped that through the years all activities are completely free of charge for all participants, which would not have been possible without the support of our partners and sponsors.

More than 1,500,000 children in the past 22 years are our joy, strength and the obligation to raise the competition system every year to an even higher level, with special attention being paid to activities with local communities. As an example, I would like to emphasize the support and excellent cooperation with Koprivničko-križevačka County headed by mr. DarkoKoren, the town of Križevci and the mayor MarijoRajn, and the elementary school of LjudevitaModeca with the headmaster Dražen Bokan. It is a duty of all of us to give every child access to sports and the sporting way of life and therefore great thanks to the children and all the partners, "said Tihomir Gudić, Executive Director of PlazmaYouth Sports Games.
