Five federations express interest in hosting Women’s EHF EURO 2026
The European Handball Federation has received an expression of interest from five of its member federations to host the Women’s EHF EURO 2026 after the Executive Committee decided at its June meeting that holding the event in Russia, the championship’s original hosts, will not be possible.
The five new federations now bidding are Czech Republic and Poland, who have submitted a joint bid, plus Spain, Romania and Türkiye.
The timeline for the further application process is as follows:
- by 25 October 2023, the nations interested in hosting the Women’s EHF EURO 2026 have to submit their full bid to the EHF
- the bids received will be evaluated by the EHF in November and December with initial site visits taking place
- the Women’s EHF EURO 2026 will be allocated a new host at the EHF Executive Committee Meeting on 27 January 2024.
The Women’s EHF EURO 2026 is scheduled to be played from 3 to 20 December 2026.
