The event, which took place at the Swiss-Belinn Manyar Hotel in Surabaya, also served as the official opening of the 21st AUG men’s indoor handball competition at ITS.

ITS Rector Ir. Bambang Pramujati, ST, MScEng, PhD expressed that ITS is very pleased to welcome the handball athletes participating in AUG.

According to Bambang, the four-day tournament at the ITS campus is not just a competition. Rather, it serves as a means to strengthen friendships, facilitate cultural exchange, and enhance unity among universities within the ASEAN region.

Therefore, Prof Bambang also invited participants from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore to enjoy the beauty of Surabaya. “Don’t forget to take some time to explore Surabaya, and you can also visit Mount Bromo to see the sunrise,” he encouraged.

As the host, Bambang stated that ITS is committed to organizing the tournament well. This includes renovating the Pertamina Sports Hall (GOR) at ITS, the venue for the matches, to meet international handball standards. “We must do our best because we are representing not just ITS, but also Surabaya and Indonesia,” he reminded the committee.

On the other hand, the ITS Mechanical Engineering Department lecturer also hopes that this opportunity to host the event will mark the beginning of the development of handball at ITS. “By watching the matches firsthand, it has the potential to spark student interest in handball,” said Bambang.
