The Men’s EHF EURO 2024 will take place in Germany between 10 and 28 January 2024, and will be the first European championship since the move to 24 teams to be hosted by a single nation.
The draw for the final tournament took place on 10 May 2023 in Düsseldorf, with the 24 teams drawn into six groups. In the preliminary round, two groups will play in each of Berlin, Mannheim and Munich.
Handball record on the opening day
However, group A, consisting of hosts Germany, Olympic champions France, North Macedonia, and Switzerland, will start their competition in Düsseldorf. The opening day of competition is on track to set a record for the most spectators to ever watch a handball match, with more than 50,000 fans expected to watch France play North Macedonia and Germany to play Switzerland at the MERKUR Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf, before the group moves to Berlin for the rest of the preliminary round.
The main round will take place in Cologne and Hamburg, with the final weekend also at the LANXESS Arena in Cologne where the new EHF EURO trophy will be presented to the eventual winners.
