WELCOME TO THE EHF EURO 2022

The Men’s EHF EURO 2022 will be more than just a series of games – but a festival of handball. Co-hosts Hungary and Slovakia will welcome Europe’s handball elite for two weeks of spectacular action between 13-30 January 2022. The tournament slogan – Watch Games. See More – embodies what will be a celebration of handball, one which will be enjoyed across five cities whose passion for handball knows no bounds. 

For the first time, after having already hosted the Women’s EHF EURO twice, in 2004 and 2014, Hungary will host a men’s EHF EURO. The Men’s EHF EURO 2022 will be the first time that Slovakia has hosted an EHF EURO event.

With Bratislava hosting two groups during the preliminary round and one of the main round groups and Budapest hosting the final weekend in a brand-new arena, both capital cities will be put to good use. Furthermore, the Slovakian city of Kosice and the Hungarian cities Debrecen and Szeged will serve as host venues.

The slogan#WatchGamesSeeMore applies to the additional activities arranged for fans to attend. A festival feeling will be created with concerts, famous spas and fan zones adding to the 65 promising handball matches.
