hings are getting serious this summer when Europe’s best wheelchair rugby players come together in Koblenz. 144 athletes from eight nations will compete in the IWRF 2017 European Championship in the Conlog Arena from 24th June to 2nd July. Teams from Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Poland and Sweden will join defending champions Great Britain and hosts Germany and play for the title.

It is played indoors on a regulation sized basketball court with four players per team, both female and male athletes. The majority of wheelchair rugby players have spinal cord injuries which have resulted in full or partial paralysis of the legs and partial paralysis of the arms. The aim of the game is to score by crossing the 8-metre-wide goal line in control of the ball.

Admission to the Conlog Arena in Koblenz is at no charge for all five competition days from 27th June to 1st July – the best opportunity for a live experience of this fascinating sport and to cheer on your favourite team.
