European Athletics Championships Amsterdam 2016

The European Athletics Championships are coming to Amsterdam! From July 6th to 10th 2016, some 1,300 athletes from 51 countries will be competing for medals in 46 athletics disciplines. The historical Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam will be the venue for this unique sport event which will be held in the Netherlands for the first time. The qualifications for the javelin and discus throw will take place at the Museum Square. Amsterdam 2016 will ensure a unique experience of 'Athletics like never before'!

Bringing athletics to the people, that is a part of the ‘Athletics Like Never Before’ legacy too.
