The chosen four are Sweden’s left back Philip Henningsson, Austria’s right wing Robert Weber, goalkeeper Torbjorn Bergerud from Norway and Spanish centre back Daniel Dujshebaev.

Among the 24 participants are three debutants and three teams which will feature for the first time in a decade or longer. Read the breakdown of Pots 1 and 2 and Pots 3 and 4.

Draw procedure

The preliminary round of the final tournament will be held in Graz, Vienna, Trondheim, Malmö and Gothenburg; the main-round venues are Vienna and Malmö; and the final weekend is taking place in Stockholm.

Based on the qualification groups and the ranking of the EHF EURO 2018, the 24 teams are seeded as follows:

POT 1: Spain, Sweden, France, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic
(defending champions, organiser Sweden, four first-ranked teams of qualifiers)

POT 2: Norway, Slovenia, Germany, North Macedonia, Hungary, Belarus
(organiser Norway, four remaining first-ranked teams of qualifiers, one second-ranked team of qualifiers)

POT 3: Austria, Iceland, Montenegro, Portugal, Switzerland, Latvia
(organiser Austria, five second-ranked teams of qualifiers)

POT 4: Poland, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, Bosnia Herzegovina, Netherlands
(two second-ranked teams of qualifiers, four best third-ranked teams of qualifiers)

The organisers had the right to place one team each ahead of the draw. Croatia was therefore placed in Group A in Graz, Germany will play in Group C in Trondheim, and Denmark will play their first matches in Malmö. 

  Group A Group B Group C Group D Group E Group F
  Graz Vienna Trondheim Trondheim Malmö Gothenburg
Row 1 Croatia       Denmark  Sweden
Row 2     Germany Norway    
Row 3   Austria        
Row 4            

The draw procedure will follow these steps:

  1. Three teams from pot 1 are drawn into row 1
  2. Four teams from pot 2 are drawn into row 2
  3. Five teams from pot 3 are drawn into row 3
  4. Six teams from pot 4 are drawn into row 4

In the new 24-team format of the the Men’s EHF EURO there will be 65 matches played over 18 days. The top-two ranked teams from each group qualify for the two main round groups, which will consist of six teams each.

Ultimately, the semi-finals and finals will be played in Stockholm over a three-day final weekend.
