Full information from the hosts England Touch 

Following a rigorous and close ran bidding process, I am delighted, on behalf the European Federation of Touch, to welcome you to England for the 8th edition of the European Touch Championships.

The Local Organising Committee, being headed up by England’s CEO, Gregg Cropper, have made some big strides already in terms of infrastructure, live streaming plans, accommodation booking and volunteer recruitment.

I’d like to thank outgoing Events Director, Federico Black, for his contributions to the EFT and welcome Kevin Hill into the role who will now further build on the solid foundations laid. I’ve been impressed with the number of EOI’s received and look forward to being part of the biggest Euro’s to date.
