Ahead of the meeting, the Regulations Working Group met earlier last week via webinar and its suggestions and recommendations were presented to the Competitions Committee Outdoor during its meeting on Friday 13th September. Some updates to the various EHF Regulations will be made ASAP.

The Committee considered all entries and Applications to Host the 2020 club events and decided on the hosts. These will be published on Wednesday 18 September 16.00h CET.
