    • European Championships finalises sports programme and competition schedule for Munich 2022

    The European Championships 2022 Board has ratified the sports programme and daily competition schedule for the second edition of the multi-sport event taking place in Munich. The European Championships Munich 2022 sports programme is available to be downloaded here.

    The detailed daily schedule with the exact timing of all events across all sports will follow later this year and ticket sales will start in October 2021.

    The European Championships is set to take place from 11-21 August 2022 in the summer of the 50th anniversary of the Olympics Games in the German city and 20 years after Munich staged the 2002 European Athletics Championships. The main athletics programme is due to take place between 15-21 August in Munich's iconic Olympic Stadium, with the out-of-stadia events taking place in the heart of the city.

    The European Championships Munich 2022 will unite the existing senior championships of nine of the continent’s leading sports ‘under one roof’ in Munich to create a must-watch, must-attend experience that elevates the champions of Europe.

    The finalised overall sports programme will feature 4700 athletes from about 50 nations competing in 176 medal events. The nation finishing top of the overall medal table for the participating sports will be awarded the European Championships Trophy.

    European Championships Management has coordinated an intensive timetable development process that involved representatives of the participating federations of athletics, beach volleyball, canoe sprint, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, sport climbing, table tennis and triathlon along with the host city Munich, the European Broadcasting Union and national broadcasters.

    European Championships 2022 Board Chair and European Athletics Vice President Libor Varhaník, said: "This is a huge milestone for the European Championships Munich 2022. All stakeholders have worked together in a spirit of collaboration to develop a fantastic competition schedule over 11 days full of action-packed finals and gold-medal moments that will feature Europe’s brightest stars including the likes of Dina Asher-Smith, Laura Ludwig, Yul Oeltze, Adam Ondra, Peter Sagan, Max Whitlock, Birgit Skarstein, Timo Boll and Alistair Brownlee.

    "Munich 2022 will be an amazing viewing experience for ticket holders and viewers at home with television, radio and online channels able to deliver a huge choice of content to sports fans. By uniting our sports, we will provide broadcasters great storytelling opportunities, allowing them to seamlessly switch between events and giving audiences the chance to follow their favourite national athletes across the nine Olympic sports from morning till night as they strive for European glory."

    The revamped sports programme for Munich 2022 sees increased diversity, with individual, team and ball sports all represented, gender equity across all disciplines, and sports appealing to both young and older audiences. The programme is also expected to deliver a greater spread of European medal-winning nations than in 2018.
