squad

In December 2021, the 24 participating associations of the European Handball Federation announced the maximum of 35 players to take part in the tournament. Changes are fundamentally excluded. Before the tournament started, the squad lists of the national associations had to be reduced to 20 players. For each match day, the associations announce 16 players from this list for their squad. In the preliminary round, the main round and the finals, the associations can each replace a maximum of two players.

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen numerous roster changes as players contracted the coronavirus. Injuries and private reasons also led to some additional nominations in the final line-ups. Among the players who cannot or do not want to take part in the European Championship are some top stars.

Corona cases in the teams

During the tournament, some players tested positive for COVID-19 and had to go into quarantine. After five days, affected players can take part in the tournament again , provided they can show two negative PCR tests . The following players were (temporarily) absent due to COVID-19 infections:

preliminary round

The preliminary round consists of six groups with four teams each. The team plays once against every other team in the same group ( round robin system ). Each team gets two points for a win and one point for a draw. The two best teams in the six preliminary round groups qualify for the main round.

During the preliminary round, the number of points determines the placement. If two or more teams have the same number of points, the following criteria decide on the placement:

  • better goal difference from all group matches
  • higher number of goals scored in all group matches
  • alphabetical order

At the end of the preliminary round, the better number of points decides the placement. If two or more teams have the same number of points, the following criteria decide on the placement:

  • better score from all group matches between the teams concerned (direct comparison)
  • better goal difference from all group matches between the teams concerned (direct comparison)
  • higher number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned (head-to-head comparison)
  • Better goal difference from all group matches (scored by subtraction)
  • higher number of goals scored in all group matches
  • the lot if the previous criteria do not result in a decision on the complete placement (i.e. at least 2 teams still have undecided placements). The draw will be carried out by the EHF, in which one team official from each of the teams concerned can take part

    main round

    The main round consists of 2 groups with 6 teams each. The round-robin system is also used here. Each team gets 2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. The top two teams in the two main round groups qualify for the semifinals. Third-place finishers play for 5th place.

    During the main round, the number of points determines the placement. If two or more teams have the same number of points, the following criteria decide on the placement:

    • better goal difference from all group matches
    • higher number of goals scored in all group matches
    • alphabetical order

    At the end of the main round, the better number of points decides the placement. If two or more teams have the same number of points, the following criteria decide on the placement:

    • better score from all group matches between the teams concerned (direct comparison)
    • better goal difference from all group matches between the teams concerned (direct comparison)
    • higher number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned (head-to-head comparison)
    • Better goal difference from all group matches (scored by subtraction)
    • higher number of goals scored in all group matches
    • the lot if the previous criteria do not result in a decision on the complete placement (i.e. at least 2 teams still have undecided placements). The draw will be carried out by the EHF, in which one team official from each of the teams concerned can take part
