Th 11.01. - Tu 16.01.2024
As the venue for the matches of two preliminary round groups, the Olympic Hall will experience a total of twelve encounters of European top teams on the six days between 11 and 16 January with two matches per day (kick-off always 18:00 and 20:30 pm). Among them will be the reigning triple world champions Denmark as well as the eternal secret favourites Iceland. In advance ticket sales, handball fans can choose either complete packages for all matches of an entire group or tickets for individual match days.
"We are looking forward to the 2024 European Championship for many reasons: Firstly, because after the extremely successful World Cup 2019, we know that Munich and we can play handball. I remember the exciting and atmospheric games in the sold-out Olympic Hall with too much pleasure. And just like back then, we have strong partners like the Bavarian Handball Association and the state capital at our side. Together with them, we will make sure that the European handball tournament in the Olympic Park will be an unforgettable experience for the teams, their fans and the people of Munich," says Olympic Park boss Marion Schöne.
In 2019, the Handball World Cup in the Olympic Hall attracted over 136,000 visitors:inside on five match days with a preliminary round group without the German team. Several sold-out matches had put an exclamation mark on Munich. And that's how it should be again in 2024.
The ambassadors of the EHF EURO 2024, such as decathlon star Niklas Kaul, who won the title at the 2022 European Athletics Championships in the Olympic Stadium next door after winning the World Championship gold medal in 2019 and who played handball himself in his youth, are looking forward to thrilling top handball in the Olympic Hall. Prominent protagonists in action for Munich before and at the European Championships are also ex-professional Dominik Klein, the 2007 World Champion, and his wife Isabell, the 91-time national player who started her career as a local hero with TSV Schleißheim and TSV Ismaning.
