The announcement was made at the end of this year’s European championships which was hosted by Tel Aviv, Israel. It is the second time the Czech Republic has held the European championships. Serbia and Romania had also been among the contenders to host the 2020 competition. The European Games will take place next year in Minsk.

Judo will be one of the major sports in Minsk with official European Championships, just like in 2015 in Baku. The Belarussian judoka show good results and judo is important for these European Games in the Belarussian capital. It's the first time that Belarus hosts the European Senior Championships. Belarus President Pavel Yasenovsky was a proud man to take over the flag at the official ceremony.

Prague is happy to host the 2020 championships, are being seen as a warm up for the Olympics taking place later in the year in Tokyo.

Czech judo competitor Lukáš Krpálek is expected to defend his Olympic gold from 2016. He secured first place in the over 100 kilo category in the European championships which have just finished, his third European title so far.
