It is already this Tuesday, August 8th, that the European Para Championships will kick off with Judo and Goalball on the menu of the 10 different sports in action.

The main hub, and therefore the venue for multiple sports, is Rotterdam Ahoy. The venue is known as the ‘biggest on earth’ since 1971!

The European Para Championships is a multisports’ event that will be staged every four years and will always be hosted by a major European city in the year preceding the Paralympic Games. Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, is set to host the first ever edition of the event.

The Judo competition is gathering 90 judokas from 19 countries, with 61 men and 29 women, and will start exactly this Tuesday, at 10 am, in two mats of the Rotterdam Ahoy Sports Hall, until the teams’ competition on the 10th of August.

The Goalball tournament, the 2023 IBSA Goalball European Championship – Division C, will have eight men’s national teams, divided into two groups, playing for promotion to Division B.
