The second edition of the multi-sport European Championships takes place entirely in Munich between 11-21 August.

The organisers are expecting one million visitors across all venues over the eleven days of competition and associated side events. Ticket prices begin at 10 Euros with several fan-friendly packages such as day tickets and championship tickets available to buy for individual sports. There will also be combined tickets on offer for some events, including the decathlon.
A number of events, such as the marathon and race walking events, BMX freestyle, mountain bike cross-country, road cycling and triathlon will be accessible free of charge along with selected beach volleyball and sport climbing sessions.
