Croatian capital to host European Judo Championships Seniors


The flagship event of the European Judo Union in 2024 will be staged in Zagreb. EJU President Dr. László TOTH and Vice-President Hrvoje LINDI, Secretary General of the Croatian Judo Federation, signed the organising contract for the Senior European Judo Championships 2024 in Zagreb today. The event will be staged at the Zagreb Arena with individual competitions held from the 25th to 27th of April 2024, with the mixed team event taking place on the 28th of April.

“It will be our most important event in 2024 and the last major qualifying tournament for the Olympic Games in Paris. We are happy to have found an ideal venue in Zagreb. The Croatian Judo Federation has great experience in organising major events. We could not have made a better choice,” said László Tóth. Hrvoje Lindi was equally delighted: “We have been working towards this moment since 2005, since the European Championships Cadets in Zagreb, to be able to organise an event of this magnitude. We are extremely excited.”

Double world champion Barbara MATIC hopes “that our team will win a lot of medals next year – and I hope to be one of them. It’s a special feeling to be able to fight in front of your own audience at an international tournament.”
