Munich to host second European Championships in 2022

0

Munich has been named as host of the second edition of the multi-sport European Championships in 2022.

Athletics, cycling, golf, gymnastics, rowing and triathlon have also been confirmed for the sports programme in the German city.

All six sports featured at the first European Championships in Glasgow and Berlin last year, alongside aquatics which has not been confirmed for a repeat appearance.

Participating European Federations unanimously approved Munich’s bid, which was first agreed by the City’s Council in March.

Most of the events in 2022 will take place in and around Munich Olympic Park, with organisers hoping for an “extraordinary festival atmosphere” and the chance to easily watch several different sports.

The Championships will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Summer Olympics staged in Munich and will be held between August 11 and 21.
