For six wheelchair rugby teams, the 2019 Metro Cup in Warsaw, Poland, will be their final test before August’s European Championships.
The event runs from 4 to 6 July and will act as vital preparation for host nation Poland, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden, who will all contest for regional medals and Tokyo 2020 Paralympic qualification in Vejle, Denmark, beginning 7 August.
Emerging wheelchair rugby nations Russia and Brazil round out the field of eight looking to show off their forms.
European Championships silver medallist Sweden highlight Pool A alongside Brazil – the 2017 Americas Championship bronze medallists –, Germany and Russia.
France defeated Denmark for the European bronze in 2017, and the two will battle in Pool B, along with Poland and the Netherlands.
Each team will play three pool matches, with the top two from each group qualifying for the semi-finals and a shot at medals.
Denmark is the defending champions, winning all four matches against France, Sweden, Germany and Poland in the five-team tournament in 2017.
