Munich will host the 2022 European Championships after the unanimous endorsement of their bid by the participating federations. 

The European Championships is now a multi-sport affair every four years and Munich 2022 will be the second such instalment, the inaugural multi-sport European Championships having been jointly held by Berlin and Glasgow in 2018. 

The six sports which formed part of the inaugural multi-sport championships - Athletics, Cycling, Golf, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon - have all confirmed their participation in 2022.  

The biennial European Athletics Championships - held in Berlin in 2018 and fixed for Paris in 2020 - will be played out at the famous Olympic Park in Munich, which hosted the 1972 Summer Olympics, the 1974 World Cup final, the Euro 88 final and three European Cup finals (1979, 1993, 1997). 

The EC2022 board have said that the majority of events will take place "in and around the Munich Olympic Park venue."

Ireland claimed four medals at the inaugural multi-sport championships in 2018, with Rhys McClenaghan winning gold in the pommel horse, Paul and Gary O'Donovan winning silver in the rowing lightweight double sculls, and Shane Ryan and Thomas Barr taking bronze in the pool and on the track respectively.
