Men’s EHF EURO 2022 qualifiers schedule updates

Updated on 19 April 2021. 

The playing schedule and locations for the upcoming final rounds of Men’s EHF EURO 2022 qualifiers is complete following the confirmation of group 4’s programme, as well as an agreement between the Norwegian, Latvian and Italian Handball Federations. 

A total of 37 matches will be played from Tuesday 27 April to Sunday 2 May as the places at the final tournament in Hungary and Slovakia are decided, with several postponed matches adding to the original rounds 5 and 6 schedule.

The situation with necessary match postponements due to Covid-19 has made for an exciting finish to the qualification stage, with much more action ahead — and all of it will be streamed live on EHFTV.

The EHF has worked in close collaboration with all the concerned federations to determine the most suitable playing schedule and with the goal of ensuring all qualifiers are played.

In group 4, two postponed matches with the home right for Israel have been confirmed as follows:

Israel vs Lithuania
Initially scheduled for: 9 March 2021
New playing date: Monday 26 April 2021 (time TBC)

Israel vs Iceland
Initially scheduled for: 11 March 2021
New playing date: Tuesday 27 April 2021 (time TBC)

Three other postponed matches, where the new playing date was announced previously, will be played amongst the round 5 and 6 fixtures:

Greece vs France
Original playing date: 8 November 2020
New playing date: 27 April 2021, 19:00 CEST

Faroe Islands vs Czech Republic
Original playing date: 7 November 2020
New playing date: 30 April 2021, 20:45 CEST

Iceland vs Israel
Original playing date: 7 November 2020
New playing date: 2 May 2021, 18:00 CEST

The remaining 32 games to be played were originally part of the rounds 5 and 6 schedule, however, one game will take place in a different location and at a changed time. 

Norway vs Italy
Playing date (as per original): 2 May 2021
New playing time 18:00 CEST
New location: Valmiera, Latvia

The change is due to inability to play the match in Norway, based on Covid-19 restrictions. The Norwegian Handball Federation therefore made the friendly gesture of paying an additional night of necessary accommodation for the team of Italy, related to the testing measures in place in Latvia.
