Two years ago at EAF Congress 2014 it was announced that Slovakia will host EuroArm 2017. Thanks to Anders Axklo we found out the reason for the change: Slovakia withdrew and Katowice, Poland was voted in congress.
The new host country for EuroArm 2017 is Poland and the chosen city is Katowice, 14-21 May 2017. More info about the championship will be posted here when it will be available. I posted below some info from wikipedia about Katowice city:
” Katowice is a city in southwestern Poland and the center of the Silesian Metropolis, with a population of 299,910 as of 2015.
Katowice is a center of science, culture, industry, business, trade, and transportation in Upper Silesia and southern Poland, and the main city in the Upper Silesian Industrial Region. Katowice lies within an urban zone, with a population of 2,746,460 according to Eurostat, and also part of the wider Silesian metropolitan area, with a population of 5,294,000 according to the European Spatial Planning Observation Network. Today, Katowice is an emerging metropolis. The whole metropolitan area is the 16th most economically powerful city by GDP in the European Union with an output amounting to $114.5 billion.
Katowice has been the capital of the Silesian Voivodeship since its formation in 1999. Previously it was the capital of the Katowice Voivodeship, the autonomous Silesian Voivodeship in Poland, and the Province of Upper Silesia in Germany.”
