Seven countries have officially submitted bids to host action from the four European Handball Federation (EHF) tournaments – two men’s, two women’s – in 2030 and 2032.

For the men’s EHF European Championships in 2030, there are two bids – one jointly from the Czech Republic, Poland, and Denmark, and one from Croatia.

The women's tournament in the same year, meanwhile, has attracted just one hosting bid, from Turkey.

For the men’s and women's events in 2032, three bids (Turkey, Germany, and France, and Croatia) have been submitted for the men's edition, while a joint submission from Germany, Denmark, and Poland is the only one for the Women's Euros.

Between them, five bids have been submitted for the men's tournaments, as opposed to two for the women’s iterations.

The handball federations of Croatia, Germany, Poland, and Denmark, have all bid for two events each.

All seven nations will have hosted EHF Euro action by 2030.

Following these bids, an initial assessment of their eligibility will take place on June 19 through the EHF's executive committee, followed by a detailed evaluation between July and September.

The allocation of hosts for these tournaments is set for December 14 this year, at the EHF's extraordinary congress in Vienna, Austria.

The men's events in 2030 and 2032 are likely to take place in January, and the women’s events in November and December.

The 2024 men’s EHF Euros took place between January 10 and 28 in Germany, while the women's event is scheduled to run from November 28 to December 15 across Austria, Hungary, and Switzerland.
