Six weeks before the EHF EURO 2022, which start on 13 January, the 24 participating teams have named their initial squad lists. The co-host Hungarian team nominated a maximum of 35 players for the deadline.
Each squad list contains a maximum of 35 players and will serve as the basis for the respective federation to select the 20-player squads participating at the EHF EURO 2022, together with eight officials.
A maximum of two players can be replaced by two new players from the original contingent of 35 (or fewer) during the preliminary round. A maximum of two players can be replaced during the main round and a maximum of two players can be replaced during the final weekend.
On the day of each match teams will confirm the 16 players and four officials participating that day.
If a player who has been replaced returns, this counts as another replacement and is added to the total number of replacements. So, the basic rule is that, altogether, a maximum of six players can be replaced throughout the entire tournament.
István Gulyás, the head coach of the Hungarian national team, nominated 35 players (including 5 goalkeepers) for the tournament.
