Having staged two successful Sparkassen Footvolley Cups in 2014 and 2015, the German Footvolley Association together with the city of Schwäbisch Gmünd applied to host the European Footvolley Championship in 2016. This application was submitted at the 2nd European Footvolley League meeting in October 2015 in Albufeira (Portugal).
The amazing support of city hall, the great location in the center of the city and the overwhelming enthusiasm of the audience were the main reasons why the European Footvolley League decided to host the 1st European Footvolley Championship in Schwäbisch Gmünd (Germany).
Furthermore the German Association submitted a positive financial plan. Two more reasons for choosing the city of Schwäbisch Gmünd were the high quality of the infrastructure and the warm hospitality for the footvolley players.
