The race to reach the Men’s EHF EURO 2022 in Hungary and Slovakia continues with a busy schedule of qualifiers over the coming week.

With several rescheduled matches from the first two rounds of qualifiers also taking place, 23 games will be played between 5-13 January as teams also prepare for the World Championship in Egypt, which throws off later this month.

Among a host of important games in the Men’s EHF EURO 2022 Qualifiers presented by Lidl is the double-header between Germany and Austria.

Germany’s opening matches in the qualifiers in November attracted large TV audiences with almost 1.7 million fans tuning in to see their victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina and 1.5 million watching their win against Estonia.

The first two rounds of qualifiers played in November were popular on EHFTV with more than 90,000 users watching more than 14,000 hours of handball. All matches will again be available to watch for free on EHFTV to registered users, subject to geoblocking.

Using the extensive near-live and highlight video content produced by the EHF’s media and marketing partner DAZN Group, 25 national federations posted content on their owned and operated media channels generating more than 1.2 million impressions and almost half a million video views.

The EHF EURO Cup, which pits teams already qualified for the final tournament, also returns with a double-header featuring the EHF EURO 2020 finalists Spain and Croatia.
