Brits receive schedule for 2014 European Qualifiers
10th July 2012
The British Gas GBR Men’s Water Polo team will host FYRO Macedonia, Czech Republic and France in European Championship qualifiers next season.
The Brits, who are currently preparing to compete at the Olympics for the first time since 1956, will play six matches between November 2012 and November 2013 as they look to book a place in the Preliminary Round for the Championships.
FYRO Macedonia will most likely provide the toughest opposition, having competed at the past three European Championships.
Czech Republic have never reached the European finals while France have been absent since 2001 - the last time the Championships were held in Budapest.
