EHF EURO History

The first Women's EHF European Championship was organised in 1994 in Germany. Back then, only 12 teams were playing for the coveted trophy.

In the years since, Scandinavian teams have been dominating the tournament, with Denmark winning three times and record winners, Norway, lifting the trophy on seven occasions.

Apart from Denmark and Norway, the two hosts of Women's EHF EURO 2020, only three other nations have won a Women's EHF EURO. In 2000, Hungary came first; 12 years later Montenegro won the EHF EURO 2012 played in Serbia. 

In 2018, France won their 'home' EHF EURO, beating Russia in the final, 24:21, in front of 14,000 fans, a record crowd for a Women's EHF EURO, in Paris.
