The 2017 European Athletics Team Championships in Lille, France

We are offering a choice of package durations to the EATC with the top 12 European nations competing in a joint men and women’s competition. The EAA has decided that there will now be heats for the 100m, 200m, 400m plus 100m / 110m / 400m Hurdles events on the Friday evening rather than the two “time trials” of recent years subject to variable conditions for these events with athletes then ranked by time. The qualifiers from the Friday heats will then graduate to “finals” in these events on the Saturday & Sunday along with the other track events. The field events will also be spread over the 3 sessions in order to showcase these in an improved format.
