Euros and World Championships 2022

Dodgeball is back!

In 2022, Dodgeball Sweden will be competing in two major international events – the European Championships held in the Netherlands, and the World Championships held in Canada.

See below for more details on each event, and then fill out the indication of interest form here.

European Championships

The 2022 European Championships will be held in Drachten, The Netherlands, on July 14th-17th. Dodgeball Sweden will be competing in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed cloth dodgeball. Each squad will consists of up to 12 players, and selections for each squad will be conducted by Landslagsledningen around March 2022.

The Euros is always one of the most appreciated events of the year, and the extended Dodgeball Sweden squad usually consists of players, coaches, functionaries and spectators. We would love for you to join us for an amazing week!

The cost of the event is usually around 3000-4000 SEK including accomodation and meals, more details we be available closer to the event. Joint travel options to Drachten will be arranged by Staben.

World Championships

The first ever combined Cloth and Foam Dodgeball World Championships will be held in Edmonton, Canada on August 28th-September 4th 2022 at the Saville Centre. The event will feature both cloth and foam dodgeball in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed, and Dodgeball Sweden will participate in all six disciplines if possible.

Selections for the Cloth teams will be handled by Landslagsledningen and selections will be finalized around January to allow players to find reasonably priced travel options. The selection process for the Foam event is yet to be decided. We expect that the Cloth squad will have more of a competitive result focus, while the Foam squad will be more of a learning experience for all players.

While the event is six days in total, we expect that there will be three days of foam dodgeball and three days of cloth, so players that only compete in one form of dodgeball will not need to (but are of course welcome to) join for the entire event.

Players are encouraged to make travel arrangements as soon as possible to reduce costs. More details on accomodation options will be forthcoming, but the expectation from our hosts is that this is a ”stay & play” event, meaning that players should use official hotels & accomodation.
