For the first time in the history of an EHF EURO Event, the Women’s EURO 2010 will take place in two countries that won the organisation rights back in 2006 with a joint bid. Denmark and Norway will host the top national teams of Europe from 9 to 19 December 2010. The joint bid, however, is not the only new feature of EHF EURO 2010.
The road to the Final Tournament will be similar to that already seen in the case of the Men’s EURO 2010 Austria. There will be a qualification phase with matches played in groups on home and away basis. Apart from the organising countries, Denmark and Norway, 14 other teams will be there at the Final Tournament. Exactly 30 national teams have registered to take part in the qualification that will be played between September 2009 and May 2010.
The first step on the way towards Norway and Denmark will be the Qualification Draw on 24 March 2009 at 11hrs. On this day European handball will be watching the EHF Headquarters in Vienna to know the seven groups of four teams. Once again, the fans and media will receive all the information related to the event. The official website of the Women’s EURO 2010 will be available soon under the common www.ehf-euro.com EHF EURO Events domain. You are now reading the first edition of the Women’s EHF EURO 2010.
