Tamara Geeraerts, the Events Manager at Badminton Europe, had this to say about the EMWTC

- The 2020 European Men’s & Women’s Team Championships in France will be the biggest ever in its current format. Spectators can expect to see World Championship, Olympic and European Games medalists competing on their highest level while preparing for Tokyo 2020. Hosting this tournament in a badminton country like France and in the magnificent venue of Arena Stade Couvert de Liévin, will create an amazing atmosphere for all those present to witness it, she says. 

At the same times as the EMWTC, the European U15 Championships will be held from 14 to 16 of February also in Liévin, France.
