To be staged every four years, the European Championships is a new multi-sport event which brings together the existing European Championships of some of the continent’s major sports (Athletics, Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon) along with a new Team Golf Championships. The concept is being delivered by the European Federations of the participating sports, the Host Cities of Glasgow and Berlin and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The first European Championships will take place in 2018 in Glasgow and Berlin between 2 August and 12 August. The event will bring around 4,500 athletes to both cities to compete in seven sports. Approximately 3,025 athletes will compete in Glasgow/Scotland as part of an overall delegation of around 8,500 including officials and media. Events will take place in Glasgow and across Scotland with Aquatics disciplines held in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Loch Lomond, Cycling in Glasgow while Golf will be held at Gleneagles and the Rowing and Triathlon will be held in North Lanarkshire. Meanwhile, Berlin will host the Athletics.
