  • Visit the 34th European Baseball Championship in Hoofddorp from 9 to 18 September.
  • The defending champion, Holland, in competition with 11 other countries to win the grand cup.

Location: Hoofddorp Pioniers

Hoofddorp will be the 46th city to host the European Baseball Championship, and the 2016 championships will also mark the second time in four years that Holland has the honour of organising the event. With two fields, the Hoofddorp Pioniers’ relatively new complex has everything necessary for the entire event to unfold in one location. This location is also advantageous to the Dutch team, who hold their weekly training here.

12 countries, 1 title

In 2016, Holland will be defending its title of European champion on home ground. As a matter of fact, the Dutch team has won the European Championships 21 times before! Joining Holland in the 2016 tournament are Italy, Spain, Germany, the Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Russia, the United Kingdom, Croatia, Sweden and Greece. In short, it’s shaping up to be a spectacular event, with not just a lot of baseball, but a variety of fun side events as well.
