Finland will host the European Men’s and Women’s Championships
Feb. 21, 2021
Finland will host the 2022 European Men’s and Women’s Championships, alongside which the U15 European Championships will be held in February. In addition, Finland will host the main event of the year, the 2022 European Championships in April.
-After two strong bids from Finland to host our two flagship events in Finland they were accepted. I think we have shown Europe that we can host these kinds of events in Finland under these very odd conditions and restrictions stated Jimmy Andersen, Deputy General Secretary of Badminton Europe.
-Obviously, in 2022 we hope that this will not be the case. One of the main reasons to bring these events to Finland is to display top-level badminton to a Finnish audience, so we are hoping that they will be watching from inside the venue as opposed to behind the screen. Jimmy Andersen added.
