Shortly before Christmas the arena for Euro 2017 was finalised in collaboration with the German Archery association. It was decided that the 2100 capacity arena would be shared between the IBSA Championships and the Archery World Cup event to be held shortly before the Blind Football European Championships. Due to the nature of the archery event we will now have a U-shaped stadium with the open end giving a nostalgic view of impressive historic ruins of the Anhalter Bahnhof train station.
