The EYOF charter has changed since Belgrade 2007 EYOF games. In Tampere EYOF 2009 games there will be for the first time in the EYOF history the 8 teams´ tournaments in all three team sports for both boys and girls. European Olympic Committee EOC informed that the best teams will play in EYOF’s.
That is why the invitations for the NOCs to take part in the team sports in the EYOF will now be based on the rankings of the European Federations. As it can be expected that some invitations will be declined by NOCs, the rankings should include several reserve teams. EOC has proposed that every ranking consists of 12 NOCs. EOC has now asked European Basketball, Handball and Volleyball Federations to inform EOC of their ranking situations in these age categories not later than 1st of September 2008.
EYOF 2009 Organising Committee will send to NOCs the Preliminary Registration information letter in the end of August.
EOC together with the Tampere organisers will in the beginning of September inform the ranking situations so that NOCs can make their decisions of the participations to team sports and send their registration information before 30th September 2008 to EYOF Tampere 2009 Organising Committee.
