Abensberg is the current men’s European Champion. Last year in Istanbul they took the title against Yawara Newa. The women’s team of Red Star Champigny won last year’s title. It will be a spectacular day where the teams will be drawn in various pools, so each team will at least fight two matches. From 13:00h the best teams of the pools will fight in a knockout system, followed by the final four broadcasted live on TV. The stadium of the Institut du Judo in Paris will be completely full and fans across Europe will cheer for their teams.
