Germany is getting ready to host the 2023 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships

Germany is getting ready to host the 2023 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships 3.9.2023

We are just a couple of days away from the 2023 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany. The championships will be held over four competition days, between 7th and 10th September, and the Opening Ceremony is on the programme upcoming Wednesday.

It will not be the first time Germany will host the Canoe Polo European Championships, but it will be a debut European Championships tournament in Brandenburg an der Havel. So far, Germany hosted the best European Canoe Polo players at three European Championships (1997, 2009, 2015), always in Essen.
Organisers of the upcoming ECA Canoe Polo European Championships, Brandenburg Canoe Polo Club Beetzsee e.V. (KCB) in cooperation with the Kayak Club Nord-West Berlin e.V. (KCNW), expect to welcome 48 teams from 16 European nations who will fight for the European Champion titles in men’s and women’s senior and U23 events.
The organisers are well experienced, having organised numerous tournaments, including the 2019 German Championships and many Bundesliga matches on the Beetzsee. The head of the organisation Frank Göbel and his team presented the idea to higher instances, and the city, the Brandenburg State Canoe Association together with the German Canoe Association presented the candidacy to host the European Championships in 2021. Since then, the preparations for this canoe polo tournament have been underway.
“We would be happy to have a strong visitor presence and hope to make our sport better known and more popular. We warmly invite you to be there,” said Frank Göbel.
There will be free entry for the opening ceremony of the 2023 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships, while the entry fee during the competition days will be 5 EUR (free entry for children up to 12 years of age). The tickets will be sold at the entrance (cash payment).
The tournament will be played on four pitches. Finals in the U21 age group are scheduled for Saturday, while senior women’s and men’s finals will be played on Sunday afternoon.
The following nations have entered their teams to the European Championships tournament: Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal,  Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and of course Germany.
