The Baku 2015 European Games will be held from 12th to 28th June 2015. 18 European Federations have confirmed that their sports will form part of the European Games programme. The BEGOC Sport Department has met with each of the 18 European Federations and most have already visited Baku to confirm the number of athletes per sport, disciplines and events that will be included in the European Games and the qualification process for these. Many innovations in the sport programme have been included in these Games to make them a truly unique European model that the EOC can take for-ward for future editions.
The EOC is still in discussions with the European Athletics Association in relation to the exact format that Athletics may play in these inaugural European Games and further details will be provided to the NOCs in due course.
BECOG will provide NOCs with detailed information on the Sports Entries and Qualification processes by sport in time for the EOC Secretaries General Seminar in May 2014. In the meantime, a summary by Sport can be found hereafter for an initial review and further information will be provided by the EOC General Assembly in Rome. We trust that this information will provide the NOCs with sufficient detail to discuss estimated team sizes with your respective National Federations and allow for some early planning relating to your operations in Baku.
