Netherlands will host the biggest ever European Team Squash Championships when the 2008 event - featuring 19 nations in the women's - takes place at the Frans Otten Stadion in Amsterdam from 30 April to 3 May.
The men's championship welcomes Serbia for the first time - and also Portugal and Luxembourg, returning to the event for the first time since 1999 and 1997, respectively.
The women's event boasts the biggest entry since 2000 - and hails first-timers Ukraine, while also welcoming back Greece for the first time since 1989.
The 2008 staging marks the ninth time the prestigious Championships have been hosted by Netherlands - more times than any other country.
England, defending champions in both the men's and women's events, are seeded to retain their titles - the men's squad for the 33rd time since the inaugural event in 1973, and the women's having held the title unchallenged since 1978.
In the absence of Tania Bailey, who is recovering from knee surgery, the England women's team features world No6 Jenny Duncalf, No8 Vicky Botwright, No11 Alison Waters and No12 Laura Lengthorn-Massaro.
Former world champion Vanessa Atkinson leads the Dutch women's squad which has finished in second place each year since 2003. Supporting the world No10 will be world No18 Annelize Naude, Karen Kronemeyer, Orla Noom and Dagmar Vermeulen.
