- Beach Volleyball, Canoe Sprint, Sport Climbing, Table Tennis join Munich 2022
- Nine sports complete 2022 European Championships sports programme
The Munich 2022 European Championships will consist of nine sports, the respective individual European Championships in Athletics, Beach Volleyball, Canoe Sprint, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing, Sport Climbing, Table Tennis and Triathlon.
The second edition of the multi-sport European Championships will take place Thursday 11th to Sunday 21st August 2022.
The EC2022 Board announced in November 2019 that Munich will host the 2022 European Championships following unanimous approval of their bid by the participating European Federations. Five sports that were part of the 2018 edition (Athletics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon) initially confirmed their participation and the staging of their respective continental championships in the event. In June 2020, Beach Volleyball, Canoe Sprint, Sport Climbing and Table Tennis were added to the now-finalized sports programme.
Across the nine sports, about 4,400 athletes from 50 countries are set to compete in a total of 158 medal events. The Munich Olympic Park will be an important symbol of sustainability on the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Summer Games with the iconic location set to be the heart of the second edition of the European Championships.
The majority of events and activities will take place in and around the park in order to create an extraordinary festival atmosphere that allows athletes from different sports to experience the event together and visitors to embrace multiple events.
The multi-sport European Championships is an 11-day celebration of world-class sport that brings together existing individual continental championships into one coordinated event staged every four years. The Championships has a central timetable, uniform branding on-site, on-air and across digital and print media, with an overall country ranking table.
Munich 2022 is the second edition following the outstanding success of the inaugural European Championships in 2018, with Glasgow and Berlin successfully staging seven European Championships with 13 disciplines, providing a unique platform to elevate the Champions of Europe. A television audience of more than 1.4 billion watched this memorable first edition on free-to-air channels via EBU Member broadcasters and partners in 44 territories across Europe and worldwide.
Across the two host cities, a total of one million people attended a sports session at the likes of Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, watched a road race on the cities’ streets, or experienced the festival-like atmospheres in George Square in Glasgow and the Breitscheidplatz in Berlin.
