A joint bid from Hungary and Slovakia has been successful at the EHF Congress in Glasgow to host the Men’s EHF EURO in 2022. Hungary and Slovakia have experience of hosting numerous handball events, including IHF Youth and Junior World Championships.
Hungary already has experience of co-hosting an EHF EURO – sharing the role with Croatia for the Women’s EHF EURO in 2014, but neither has yet hosted a senior Men’s EHF EURO or IHF World Championship. Budapest has also hosted the Women’s EHF FINAL4 since 2014.
The bid from Denmark and Switzerland was withdrawn before the start of the presentations to focus only on their bid for 2024.
Playing dates for the men’s EHF EURO 2022 is between 14 to 30 January.
