Still no dates not only for qualification itself, but even the draw for qualification to Europeans in Budapest in 2020. As the tournament will be in January (due to Olympics of course) they need to take three rounds by... October? Which means two things - or very tight calendar for weaker teams starting from round 1 or, what is more possible, only two rounds of qualification with probably less entries than before Barcelona.

so, in the men's tornament, for instance, we could well have a group with SRB (or HUN), CRO, ITA and another team and at the same time another group with GER, BRA, NZL and a 4th tier team, with the 1st ranked of such group already sure to make at least the quarterfinals (= top 8 finish mathematically safe)...

 

what the hell were they thinking when they adopted these pots????? :facepalm::wall:
