European Para Championships 2023

The European Para Championships is a multisport event. It will be staged every four years and will always be hosted by a major European city in the year preceding the Paralympic Games. In 2023, the European Championships of ten different parasports will be organized simultaneously in one host city, Rotterdam, for the very first time.


Inaugural European Para Championships

The inaugural edition will take place in Rotterdam from 8 to 20 August 2023. At the event, 1,500 Paralympic athletes from forty-five different European countries will compete to become European Champions. The main hub, and therefore the venue for multiple sports, is Rotterdam Ahoy. In addition to this #EPC2023 will also use various outdoor venues in the heart of Rotterdam. These 'city center courts’ ensure that the parasports come to the people, instead of the other way around. All sports that are part of the European Para Championships 2023 have a direct connection to the Road to the Paris 2024 Paralympics. Qualifying Points can be earned during this event. Some sports even involve direct qualification for Paris 2024.
