Madrid, Spain, was the first host to kick off and close the qualification stage.

In today's showdown in Women’s Group 1, the quest for the first ticket to Poland for the 2024 European Men’s & Women’s Team Championships took place. Sweden dominated with a resounding 5-0 victory over Luxembourg. 

The spotlight, however, was on the intense face-off between Spain and Italy, determining the group leader. In the end, Spain emerged victorious, having conceded only one win in the entire qualification, securing their triumph against Italy, and qualifying for the main event.

Estonia and Scotland are now poised for an exciting match on the last day of the qualification stage in Khirdalan, Azerbaijan. Emerging as leaders in Group 4, Estonia and Scotland secured additional victories today against Slovakia and Azerbaijan, respectively – despite Azerbaijan starting strong, Keisha Fatimah Az Zahra claimed a win against Kristin Kuuba. Tomorrow at 6am, the top-performing teams will clash for the coveted qualification.

Sweden and hosts England dominate Men’s Group 3. England secured a convincing 4-1 victory against Switzerland today, while Sweden triumphed 5-0 over Iceland following a tight 3-2 win against the Swiss side yesterday.

In Men’s Group 5, Ukraine leads Subgroup 1, while Belgium and Israel will battle for supremacy in Subgroup 2.

While Azerbaijan's Women's team faces challenges on home soil, the Men's team enjoys success in Prague. They currently share the top spot in their subgroup with Ireland. Meanwhile, the host team leads their own subgroup, with a crucial match against Austria set for tomorrow.

Türkiye's Women's team has secured a spot in the final match of the qualification stage on Sunday in Bulgaria, solidifying their top position in their subgroup. Can Bulgaria deliver an impressive performance on home soil tomorrow?

The Netherlands and Spain, the powerhouses in Men’s Group 4, have yet to concede a win, promising an electrifying clash on the final day. Meanwhile, the Women’s Group 6 continues its intense battle in their subgroups, with Hungary and hosts Netherlands leading their respective subgroups so far.
