Denmark, the host country of the European Mixed Team Championships for 2019, is the most successful team in the last few years. 

In this spectacular event among the best teams in Europe, which is held from 1972, there has always been a Danish domination on the podium. With 16 gold medals in the history of the EMTC, the host Denmark feels confident enough to compete on February 13rd and defend the title in Copenhagen.
 
Denmark is in Group 1 and the matches are already confirmed as detailed below.

Wednesday   2/13/2019 6:00 PM    - France

The squad of the number one seed Denmark

The powerful Danes have all the top players to compete on home soil. 

In the category of the Men’s Singles, there are a number of super players that looks almost unbeatable. The World's number six ranked Viktor Axelsen is expected to line-up in the first opening match against France. The winner of the Indonesia Masters Anders Antonsen is also in good form. Besides, Denmark has also Rasmus Gemke to represent his country.  

The Danish champion in the Men's Doubles Kim Astrup, stayed out of court the previous weekend at the Danish National Championships that took place in Aarhus. Now, it will be interesting to see whether he will show up or if his injury will consequently lead Anders Skaarup Rasmussen to find a new partner. 

Line Højmark Kjaersfeldt, winner of the Danish National Championships the previous weekend in Aarhus, is in excellent form and looks ready to compete in the Women's Singles. But Denmark has also Mia Blichfeldt, who is in a very good physical condition. 

Mathias Christiansen and Christinna Pedersen, are a logical formation in the Mixed Doubles.

In the category of the Women's Doubles, Maiken Fruergaard and Sara Thygesen seem to be  the first option for the Danish coaches but also Christinna Pedersen, a top quality double player, could help the National Team. 

See the full list of the 18 Danish players here.

Denmark features a great team of top players and cosidering all the triumphs in the history of the EMTC, it is arguably the front-runner nation of the competition. 

Stay tuned and wait for the best badminton in Europe to start!
