The value of the football played by the UVT team is not ephemeral, it maintains a very high rate year after year. After winning the European University Games, here is the UVT team reconfirming their work power and their pleasure to play. The UVT community promotes sports culture in the most diverse branches and specialties of team or individual games, and the achievements of the UVT football team are among the most significant successes in the record we are proud of.
