The Men’s EHF EURO 2024 in Germany might still be more than 21 months away, but the tournament is stepping into the limelight this week.

On Thursday, the eight groups for the qualifiers will be drawn in Berlin.

And on the eve of this draw event, the playing schedule for the EHF EURO Cup 2024 has been released.

The competition features the four teams that have already qualified for the final tournament of the European Championship in 2024, which takes place in six cities across Germany on 10-28 January.

Hosts Germany will take on reigning European champions Sweden, while EHF EURO 2022 bronze medallists Denmark are set to play runners-up Spain in round 1 of the EHF EURO Cup on 12/13 October 2022.
