CHE in gymnastics-2025 will be moved from Tel Aviv


The 2025 European Gymnastics Championship, which was supposed to be held in Tel Aviv, will be moved from Israel. This decision was taken by the European Gymnastics Union (EGS).

The “current situation in Israel” was cited as the reason for the postponement. Until April 23, EGS accepts applications for holding the championship from other countries.

“We highly appreciate the efforts of the Gymnastics Federation of Israel, which has successfully held several European championships over the past 8 years,” says the EGS statement. Also, the union will welcome applications from Israel to host the next championships.
