From June 30 until July 6, the 21st Softball Women’s European Championship will be held in Ostrava, Frydek Mistek (CZE), Rybnik and Zory (POL). This is the first time that a one-division event is being held in two different countries!

23 National Teams will battle to take home the title of European Champion 2019. A total of 113 games will be played in seven days, starting off in four different groups for the round robin games.

It’s tough to say who will dominate this Championship. So far, only Italy and the Netherlands (current Champions) succeeded in bringing home the gold. Will it be between them again, or will another team like the Czech Republic, great Britain, Russia or Ireland shake everything up and bring home the title after winning the Super 6 tournament last year?

If ending high up in the ranking isn’t fun enough already, there’s something extra at this tournament: the top six teams of this European Championship will earn a place in the Africa/Europe Qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games where they face the two top teams from the African Championship, to get the only ticket to the Olympics for this region.
