BUCHAREST TO HOLD BOTH EUROPA LEAGUE & CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TOGETHER

Europe League & Champions League

The European Judo Union in partnership with the Romanian Judo Federation and the City Hall of Bucharest proudly announce the staging of both, the Champions League and the Europa League of the European Club Championships, in Bucharest between the 7th - 9th December 2018. For the first time both Leagues will be hosted at the same location - Sala Polivalenta Bucuresti - and will conclude the EJU sport event calendar 2018. According to tradition, price money will be awarded to all medallists.

The history of the two level club team events began in 2014 and they had usually been hosted by two different national federations. This year marks a special moment for European judo community as both victories will be celebrated on one place so fans will not have to make taugh decisions on where to go, as they can fully enjoy the three days event at one place.

The tournament will be opened on Friday, the 7th of December with EJU Prime Event - the Champions League for both men and women (former Golden League). Saturday will showcase all matches of the Men edition of the Europa League. On the final day, the women's team event will close and mark another successful year.

Althought, it is the first time that these two events are taking place at the same place, it is not the first time that Bucharest hosts a judo event. Romania is regular on the EJU yearly calendar with different events across different age groups. Now that the surprise is revealed, we would like to invite all judo fans to join us in Bucharest and celebrate another remarkable year of our unique sport, judo.
