Men’s U23 European Championship

June 13 - June 18

The Italian Wheelchair Basketball Federation (FIPIC), who were originally awarded the honour of hosting the Men’s U23 European Championship in the summer of 2020, will retain the hosting duties in Lignano Sabbiadoro for the revised dates of 13 June – 18 June 2021.

The Championship is the European Zone’s Qualification Tournament for the Men’s U23 World Championship, which is scheduled to take place in Chiba, Japan next year.

Seven countries will fight for the U23 European title – TurkeyGermanySpainPolandFranceItaly, and Israel – with the top five taking the five qualification spots available for the U23 World Championship.

Reigning European Champions Turkey were drawn in Group A with France and Israel; Germany, Spain, and Poland were drawn in Group B. Italy, as host nation, then got to choose which group they would like to be placed in to complete the group line-ups. The Italian Technical Director Carlo Di Giusto chose to compete in Group A.


All players born on or after 1 January 1999 are eligible to compete.

Initially the Women’s U25 European Championship was also included. However, due to the low number of interested teams, IWBF Europe had to take the difficult decision to cancel the women’s competition for this year.

FIPIC and the Local Organising Committee, in collaboration with IWBF Europe, are ensuring special measures are taken at the event to proceed with the health and safety of everyone participating in mind.
