We hereby confirm the host and dates for European Championships 2023.
Berlin proposed to host the event in the week after Berlin:Mixed. The proposed dates are:
Wildcard August 1
Main Event August 2-5
Berlin spontaneously jumped in for Montpellier on short notice, as our initial host Montpellier was ultimately struggling to get a permit for the event by city officials. For this reason we never were able to publicly and officially confirm the event until this point.
We are excited that Berlin takes on the HUGE task of host BOTH biggest annual polo events in the same location over two weekends. Not only do we expect an incredible crowd for both events, but we also ask the international community to do their part in assisting Berlin with the event. Many helpers and volunteers will be needed throughout both events!
More infos on final dates, event size, number of courts, and slot distribution to follow asap.
European Championship will be the qualifying event for World Championships in Perpignan. The format of European Championships will be Quads (aka 4v4 aka 3+1), with roughly 16-18 minute games, same as World Championships.
