Ostrava, Frýdek-Místek (CZE), Rybnik and Żory (POL), are ready to host the 21st Women's European Championship from June 30 until July 6. It's the first time that a European Championship is being held in three different locations.
23 different Nations will battle to take home the title of European Champion 2019. But this is not the only thing... The top six teams of this tournament will qualify for the Europe/Africa Softball Olympic Qualifier that is being held from July 23-27 in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The winner of this tournament gains a ticket to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
It's tough to say who will take home the title this year. So far, the title of European Champion has always been bouncing back and forth between Italy and Netherlands, where the Netherlands took the last Championship in 2017. But after winning the Super 6 tournament, host nation the Czech Republic is expected to make it hard for them. Or who knows, will there be another team that will take their first European title?
All games played on the main field (field 1) in Ostrava, will be live streamed through baseballsoftball.tv (one camera stream until Tuesday, multiple cameras with commentary since Wednesday). Some games on the other fields will possibly be streamed through different channels, but we will always share the links on our official Facebook page and Twitter.
