The draw for the Stage 1 B groups European Team Championships

Following discussions with five of the six Associations drawn into the Stage 1 C groups, which have been postponed due to COVID precautions and restrictions on a number of occasions during 2020 and early 2021, the Executive Board has decided that it is not possible to arrange the 2 C groups within the limited time now available before the Final Stage in September 2021 at Cluj Napoca.
