A total of 16 teams from across Europe will be playing in the event which features two rounds of strokeplay in which the five best scores out of six count towards the team score.

The defending champions are Germany who beat host Belgium at Mont Gami Golf Club. England have won the championship once at Gut Altentann in Austria in 2014 and have been runners-up five times in 2006, ’07, ’10, ’15 and most recently in 2017 in Slovakia.
