Portugal will host two European University Championships (EUC) in 2027; football and table tennis. In a press release on 3 May, the Federação Académica do Desporto Universitário (FADU) announced that the European University Sports Association (EUSA) has officially attributed the organisation of two championships to the cities of Porto and Covilhã.

The city of Porto —in joint candidacy with the Porto Academic Federation, the Porto Polytechnic, and the University of Porto— was selected for the 2027 European University Football Championship. This will be the second time that UNESCO World Heritage Site will host the football competition; first in 2017 and also hosted beach volleyball in 2013 and 3x3 basketball in 2019.

The city of Covilhã and the Universidade da Beira Interior will be the site for the European University Table Tennis Championship 2027. This will also be the second championship organised in the city; the first one is set for 2025 in handball. Portugal has also hosted the European University Games in Coimbra in 2018 and table tennis in 2011 in Funchal, Madeira.
