On behalf of LEN and the Organising Committee let me welcome you as a distinguished member of the accredited media for the 33rd LEN European Water Polo Championships in Barcelona 2018. I hope you are ready for this great show – it’s going to be another unique water polo spectacle, for sure.
In the coming days we’ll share a couple of important information with you including the online Media Guide which contains all necessary information.
Also, later on and during the event you’ll receive the usual previews for the highlighted matches on a daily basis which will offer interesting facts and figures. LEN will release a daily summary including quotes and shortly after the conclusion of the respective sessions we will send you a download link with a couple of photos of each game, free to use – courtesy of Deepbluemedia/Giorgio Scala.
