Tomorrow is the starting day of the 15th Senior Female European Championship. We return to Mealhada after the daring 14th edition in 2018 when the last final match was interrupted 105 seconds from the end due to a blackout during the passage of the hurricane Leslie and then completed in November. In this edition, there will be five participating teams and obviously the team to beat is Spain, five times consecutive European champions and three consecutive world champions. It is undoubtedly a sensational generation for the “Roja” that reflects the Spanish national championship that had never reached such a level. A championship that will also see Portugal, second in 2018, and Italy, third; France, fourth, and England, seventh and all will try to beat the Spanish team. This European Championship will be played from Monday to Saturday, with two matches one at 17:30 (local time GMT) and 20:00, where on the first day will also be held the opening ceremony, held by the local organizing committee of the Municipality of Mealhada and the Federação de Patinagem de Portugal. An event that will be experienced together with the public who will have free access (100% and 600 people allowed) to the Pavilhao Municipal de Luso, which has already been the scene of several important club competitions including the final stages of the Euroleague 2021.
The first matchday is set for Monday 11th October 2021, where the first game will be France-Italy at 17:30 (local time) and the official ceremony will be scheduled for 19:30 hour. The titleholder of the last 5 European championships will not play on the first day, instead, Portugal will fight against England at the end of the first day. The formula will be a single qualifying phase of 5 days all-against-all and in the sixth day will be the final day with the crossroad by the ranking (1st against 2nd, 3rd against 4th)
After three years without a European confrontation, it is finally time to see the national teams at work and competing. The program will include this afternoon the training sessions of all five national selections and tomorrow the meeting of delegates and referees before the races.
