Herning and the 14,000-capacity Boxen Arena in Denmark as well as Stavanger and its Idrettshall, Trondheim with a newly constructed arena and the 13,000-capacity Telenor in Norway's capital Oslo are the four venue and host cities included in the bid.

Group A and Group B in the preliminary round will be played on alternate days in Herning. Trondheim in Norway - also on alternating days - hosts the preliminary round for Groups C and D.

The main round will take place in Herning and Stavanger and the finals will take place in Oslo's Telenor Arena.

Any info, how many teams will play? I've heard they remain at 16, but it was while ago and not a official source :p

Women's EUROs to stay with 16 teams at least for 2020 and 2022.

"It was agreed that the proposal for an expansion of the Women’s EHF EURO to 24 teams from 2024 would be examined further."
