European Women's Handball Championship 2022

The EHF EURO 2022 will start on 4 November, the new champions will be crowned on 20 November in the Stožice Arena in Ljubljana – and will be the first women’s handball team to qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris – besides hosts France. If France reaches the final of the competition, the other finalist is automatically qualifying for the OG.

The preliminary round of the Women's EHF EURO 2022 will start on 4 November 2022 with co-hosts Slovenia coming up against EHF EURO 2020 4th placed Denmark in group A. In group B, Hungary will complete the double-header opener when they play against EHF EURO debutants and EHF EURO 2024 co-hosts Switzerland at the same time of 18:00 CET.  

The Women's EHF EURO 2022 will be the last continental championship to be played with 16 teams before its expansion to 24 teams in 2024.

Women's EHF EURO 2022 preliminary round groups
Group A - Ljubljana: Norway, Hungary, Croatia, Switzerland
Group B - Celje: Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia, Serbia
Group C - Skopje: France, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Romania
Group D - Podgorica: Poland, Montenegro, Germany, Spain

France, will start their campaign in Skopje in group C on 5 November. The EHF EURO 2020 and World 2021 silver medalists will face co-hosts North Macedonia in the 10,000-seater Boris Trajkovski Sports Center. 

The top three teams from each preliminary round group will qualify for the main round, which will be hosted in Ljubljana and Skopje before the final weekend in the 12,480-seater Stozice Arena, Ljubljana.

Montenegrin star Tatjana Brnovic had something like a home match at Ljubljana, as now she plays for local side Krim. In group D, Montenegro will host Poland, Germany and Spain in the famous Moraca arena in Podgorica – and Brnovic was satisfied with the draw: ‘We got a good group, facing opponents which we know and have played against them many times – but of course at an EHF EURO every group is hard. I do not expect us to be the favourite, what I can expect is that we give the best we can on the court and enjoy the matches with our amazing fans. The fans are our big plus in our ambition to win every game in Podgorica.’

Ten years after becoming EHF EURO champions 2012 in Belgrade, the hopes are high for more magic moments in 2022: ‘Making it to the final weekend in Ljubljana would be our perfect scenario. If we take some points from the preliminary round to the main round in Skopje, I am sure anything is possible, though we only expect tight games. A medal would be our great dream,’ said Brnovic.

After becoming group winners in qualification, the hopes for the Hungarian team are high for the upcoming EHF EURO 2022: ‘We have a lot of young and talented players in our team, and the more you play together, the better you get. So maybe it is a good time for us to win a medal,’ said Szimonetta Planeta, one of the Hungarian players.
