The Norwegian part of the Women’s EHF EURO 2020 will be played in only one city instead of planned three. The Norwegian Handball Association (NNF) has announced that all matches will be played in Trondheim.
Preliminary round matches had been originally scheduled to take place in Trondheim, with main round ties scheduled to be played in Stavanger. The final weekend was originally set to take place in the capital, Oslo.
However, as a result of Covid-19, and with the need to minimise infection risk, expenses and travel for competing teams and officials, the NHF agreed that all matches played in Norway during the tournament – including the final weekend – will be played inside the Trondheim Spektrum arena.
It is planned, but at this stage not confirmed, that a maximum of 200 spectators will be able to attend each match. As a result of the decision, the NHF is now embarking on an intensive planning period to host the championship in Trondheim.
- Fans that have already purchased tickets are advised that these are no longer valid for the tournament. All tickets which have been bought will be refunded, minus the ticketing fee. Fans will receive further information regarding the refund process in due course, writes EHF.
