The event changed venues for the first time in a long time and in 2016 it will be held at the Pavilhão de Oldivelas, north of the Portuguese capital city.
The new venue is larger than the Casal Vistoso Gymnasium and should fit the ever growing Jiu-Jitsu crowd more comfortably.
The 2016 European is scheduled Jan. 20*-24 and you can already register to compete.

*Fights will be scheduled on January 20 if the number of athletes registered exceed capacity for four days.
