England men and women’s European Championships double-header on February 27 will be staged at the Copper Box Arena.

The Leopards men are due to face Bosnia & Herzegovina and the women’s opponents will be Norway in what is the opening round of fixtures of the European Team Championships campaign, leading up to the finals in 2019.

With the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park venue already staging the Team World Cup from February 22-25 and the PG Mutual National Championships from March 1-4, it has been decided to also host the European matches at the Copper Box on the Tuesday between the other two events.

The match times and ticketing arrangements will be released in due course.

England men were also drawn against Serbia in the first round of European Championships fixtures, while the third team in the women’s group is Greece.
