Women's EHF EURO 2016: 16 teams, one dream

The 16 teams participating at the Women’s EHF EURO 2016 in Sweden got to know their respective preliminary round opponents as the final tournament draw was conducted in Gothenburg on Friday.

The event was hosted by Sweden's heptathlon 2004 Olympic winner Carolina Klüft and four players of participating teams - Sweden's Ida Oden, Poland's Iwona Niedzwiedz, Denmark's Line Jorgensen and Norway's Emily Stang-Sando have carried out the draw.

Defending champions Norway will face Russia, Romania and Croatia in Group D in Helsingborg, while hosts Sweden play against Serbia, Spain and Slovenia in Group A in Stockholm.

"We are hoping for a full arena, when we play and that the EURO will become a real handball festival. And what are our goals for the championship? We would love to go beyond main round," Sweden's right back Oden said.

"The group is OK. Spain are always good, with Serbia it is hard to say what kind of team will come, but if they have their best players it will be tough. Slovenia we played quite recently and it should be a feasible task."

World Championship 2015 silver medallists Netherlands were drawn to Group B in Kristianstad alongside France, Germany and Poland. Group C in Malmö consists of Montenegro, Hungary, Denmark and Czech Republic.

"We hope we will continue to the main round. Our group is almost the same as at the last year's World Championship where we lost both against Montenegro and Hungary. We have a chance, but it will be difficult," Denmark's right back Line Jorgensen commented the draw.

"We know it takes a lot of work to bring Denmark back to the top, but we will do all what we can," the reigning EHF Champions League winner with CSM Bucuresti added.

These are the preliminary round groups at the Women’s EHF EURO 2016:

The Women’s EHF EURO 2016 will take place from 4 to 18 December 2016. Following the Women’s EHF EURO 2006 this is the second time that Sweden hosts the EHF’s flagship women’s national team event.

The first three teams of each group qualify for the main round. The teams from Groups A and B move to Main Round Group I, the teams from C and D to Main Round Group II. The two top-ranked teams from each group then qualify for the semi-finals.

Host cities and venues

The preliminary round will be played in Stockholm (Group A), Kristianstad (Group B), Malmö (Group C) and Helsingborg (Group D). For the main round the tournament will move to Gothenburg (Group I) and Helsingborg (Group II)

The arenas selected for the Women’s EHF EURO 2016 are the Hovet in Stockholm with a capactity of 8,094, the Kristianstad Arena (4,700), Malmö Isstadion (5,800), the Helsingborgs Arena (4,700) and the 12,000-capacity Scandinavium in Gothenburg for the main round and the final weekend.

Ticket sales start on 21 June

EHF signs Brighton Plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration

At the Women’s EHF EURO 2016 Draw EHF President Jean Brihault has signed the Brighton Plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration on women on sport. The Brighton Declaration was adopted at the first international conference on women and sport in Brighton in 1994.
