This year, the IBSA Goalball European Goalball Championships, men's group "C" will be hosted by the Blind Sports Federation of Moldova, 4-11 September, 2017. This event's venue is the most modern sports hall of Moldova, situated in Ciorescu and just 15km from the city-center of Moldova's capital, Chisinau.
This will be a very important event for goalball development in Europe. This is the first time Moldova will host an IBSA-sanctioned competition and the organizers state they are already receiving entries from teams who are not currently listed on IBSA's Goalball World Ranking List.
The 3 top teams of the tournament will be promoted to the "B" group and will have an opportunity to be considered for future tournaments that would enable them to qualifiy to compete at the 2020 Paralympic Games.
The organizers encourage all European men's national goalball teams not ranked in groups "A" or "B" and any new national teams to consider entering this competition. Entry is currently open and applications will be accepted through the end of February. Additional detals and information and entry documents are posted to the calendar section of the goalball page of this website.
