Due to the current health situation in Europe it was mutually decided by EJU Executive Committee and Czech Judo Federation to postpone the European Judo Championships 2020 to June 19-21. The new dates have been approved by IJF with points for Olympic qualification to be granted. The EJU flagship event will take place in O2 Arena in Prague. Further details and updated Outlines will be provided within the next days.
EJU President Sergey Soloveychik:
The situation with COVID-19 has put the EJU, the organisers of events and everyone in the world into unforeseen conditions. We are certain that the most important at this unpredicted time is to remain human in our decisions and actions, and to find the compromise acceptable for all.
On behalf of our European Judo Family I would like to thank the Czech Judo Federation and everyone related to the organisation and staging of the EJU flagship event for their intense efforts. I sincerely thank the IJF and all EJU member federations and judo fans for their support given to our continental championships.
