EGCA Competition Committee has chosen the hosts for the first ever SEGL Youth (U23) Championships & European Grand Prix 2023 stages. Anytime if you have some questions, proposals or ideas, please take contact to EGCA Competition Committee by email:

“We received excellent bids from great host candidates. The host of the SEGL Youth Championships 2023 was chosen unanimously; great city with good connections from every corner of Europe and well-experienced organizer with brilliant facilities made this decision quite easy for us. Simply a perfect place to start for the SEGL Youth Championships”, the chairman of EGCA Competition Committee Mr. Erkki Miinala delights.

“One of the main goal of the European Grand Prix is to get new clubs along in our international goalball community and a great way to do it is to organize an Euro GP stage in home city / town. Euro Grand Prix 2023 will include two totally new countries and clubs that host EGCA Competition and we are more than happy for it. We decided to give oppoortunity to even four clubs to organize Euro GP stage next year. This is a very ambitious goal to get them all happen but we believe that clubs around Europe are missing more international games”, Miinala continues.
