World Taekwondo Europe is proud to announce that the Under 21 European Championships 2019 have been designated to the city of Helsingborg in Sweden.

After Grozny in 2016, Sofia in 2017 and Poland in 2018, the taekwondo youth championship moves to northern Europe.

In detail, the city of Helsingborg which will host the event with its partner and governing authority of the Region Skåne decided to bid for the upcoming version of the championships in 2019, willing to organize and carry out the event in success for both the city and the sport.
The local club in the city “Tian Dao” will be the one actively taking part in the organization of the championship and working closely with both the city as the organizers and World Taekwondo Europe as the promoter of the event.

As for the host city, Helsingborg is located at a coastal area in southern Sweden, across the Helsingør strait from Denmark, which is to the west of the country.

Sweden, which has not hosted any taekwondo events at least for the past five years and actually represents a nordic crossroad, it will facilitate the athletes and teams of the surrounding Nordic countries and northern Europe as well.

We are certain that the Organizing Committee will live up to the expectations of a European Championship and a successful event for the city and its people.
