The 2014 European Water Polo Championship will be held in Budapest from 14–27 July 2014. The venue is Margit Sziget Alfréd Hajós Swimming Stadium, quite near to our Budapest design hotel. You can take a taxi or bus 86 and be there in 10 minutes.
12 teams were qualified for the Men’s Championship, two groups of six. The first three teams in each group qualify to compete for the championship, with the first-place teams given a bye to the semifinals. The Hungarian team is one of the biggest favourites of the championship.
Waterpolo has been a favourite national sport in Hungary for decades now. Men teams were extremely successful in this sport winning several olympic and world gold medals.
Several programs will be held to entertain guests in Budapest. A Fan Village will be built up next to the swimming stadium, where fans can get the feeling of the tournament.
