We are exactly 40 days away from the European Athletics Team Championships. At the Silesian Stadium, the National Athletics Stadium, 8 of the best European teams will compete for the championship title.
As a reminder, the European Athletics Team Championships will be held on 29-30 May this year at the Silesian Stadium. It will undoubtedly be one of the most important athletics events on the Old Continent this year. At the National Athletics Stadium the teams of France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, Spain, Portugal and Poland will compete. It is our team that will defend the gold medal won at the last edition of the competition in 2019.
At the Silesian Stadium intensive preparation works, which will allow safe organization of the competition while maintaining all sanitary standards, are beginning.
– Ahead of us lies the most intense 1.5 months. Organizing an event of this rank is another bar set high. It is worth noting that we will host the best European athletics teams, so everything must be sewed up. We believe that it will be so, because the Silesian Stadium has already hosted many international events with the participation of remarkable athletes. In the current situation, the key challenge and priority is to ensure sanitary safety of both athletes and people participating in the preparations – Bartłomiej Kowalski, CEO of the European Athletics Team Championships said.
About 350 volunteers will support the organizers in various areas. Recruitment continues through 9 May. Enrolment for participation is possible by filling in the form available at www.silesia21.pl.
The athletes of the European Athletics Team Championships will be cheered on by a unique team of animal mascots, including: Maji the cheetah, Sprinter the ostrich, Julian the lemur and Lunani the giraffe. The event will be broadcast on TVP Sport, on 29 May from 15.30-19.15, and on 30 May from 13.00-16.15.
