This year the event is held  from 13 to 23 July 2011 in the Albena Resort, near Varna, on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast: The tournaments will be played in the Sports Hall, situated in the centre of the resort.

The European Youth Team Championship was inaugurated in 1968 in Prague (Juniors only), and since then has been held regularly every two years. The Youngsters (Schools) series was added in 1994 to accommodate younger players coming out of national bridge pro­grammes for school children, while the Girls series (for female Juniors) was inaugurated in 2004.

Following Plovdiv 1988, this is the second time the European Youth Teams are held in Bulgaria.
