European Judo Championships to be held in Israel

The European Judo Union has confirmed that Israel will host the European Championships next year.

The approval comes with a receipt of NIS 6 million worth of guarantees by the Israeli government, who must demonstrate its economic ability to host the event.

In May, the President of the European Judo Union, Sergey Soloveychik, will arrive in Israel to meet with Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev in order to finalise details. 

Two venues are currently being explored to hold the event, the Tel Aviv Convention Centre—where the European U23 Judo Championships were held—and Pais Arena in Jerusalem.
