Baku 2015 – One year to go

The one year to go until the Inaugural Baku 2015 European Games was celebrated during a Gala Dinner hosted by the Baku 2015 European Games Operation Committee (BEGOG) at the impressive Buta Palace in Baku. The EOC President, Patrick Hickey, in his speech to the assembled guests, marked this historic event for the European Olympic and Sports Movement. 

It was presented also the new logo of the first European Games. The logo contains some subtle changes to ensure that it works better for broadcasting and marketing perspectives.

In order to promote the Games, the BEGOG Chief Operating Officer, Simon Glegg, wrote a letter (attached below) on how to use the Baku 2015 logo. (attached below)

The European Games will be a multi-sport event for athletes from all the National Olympic Committee in Europe and will be every four year. The Games are owned, co-organized and regulated by the European Olympic Committees (EOC).
