The venerable old university was converted into a "gymnasium": In this ambience, the Graz sports year celebrated its grand conclusion. And all the guests agreed: the sports year may be over, but "Let's Go Graz" must still go on!

The many guests that evening affirmed several times that the movement initiative should not end. According to the study, almost 90 percent of the population of Graz would like a sequel - so it should be "Let's Go CONTINUE" ...
