First and foremost, on 5 September Sweden welcomes the WTE European Under 21 Championships 2019. The event takes the relay from the previous host country Poland, and promises a spectacular event, which will thrill the young and the not-so-young of the taekwondo family. The event will be realized 5-8 September in Helsingborg, Sweden at the namesake arena of the city.



For one more year, the taekwondo city of Marina d’Or will host two Taekwondo Europe events. Initially, the WTE European Cadet Championships 2019, which will be realized 1-3 October and the European Junior Championships 2019 on 4-6 October. Marina d’Or, all lively and colorful, seems the ideal place to welcome children and young athletes, and as it was proved last year, both the organization and the hospitality are valued of a European taekwondo championship.



The cosy city of Bari was decided to be the host of two very significant events for the sport. The elite of European Taekwondo and Para taekwondo will be present in Bari, focusing on the road to Tokyo. Initially, the city will host the – constantly increasing in popularity and active athletes - WTE Para-Taekwondo Championships 2019 on 31 October 2019, while the WTE G4 European Games is scheduled to follow on 1-3 November 2019, is identified as one of the most important games for the athletes trying to qualify to Tokyo 2020.

Worth to mention that the Olympic Weight Categories Championships will be the last event counting to the Olympic ranking for qualifying to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, apart from the European Qualification Tournament of the following year.



The athletic year will end in Germany with the WTE European Kids Championships 2019. The event which had been realized in Marina d’Or in Spain during last year, passes to the city of Sindelfingen, also host city of the Children President’s Cup in the past, where the event is scheduled to kick off between 7-8 December 2019.


Apart from Taekwondo Europe events, the Coaches Seminars will continue in Albania during the Albanian Open Tournament, for all the ones who wish to become an accredited WTE coach and obtain a Coach license card.
