Hosts and Paralympic gold medallists Britain are set to begin their efforts to reclaim the World Wheelchair Rugby (WWR) European Championship title in Cardiff tomorrow when they take on debutants Israel in the opening match.

Britain and Israel are lined up in Pool A at the Principality Stadium alongside last year's bronze medallists Denmark and Switzerland, who are set to meet later on the first day.

Defending champions France are due to start against The Netherlands in the Welsh capital, with the other opening Pool B match featuring Germany and the Czech Republic.

Teams are set to face each other once in their respective pools through to Friday (May 5).

The top two sides are set to advance to the semi-finals, scheduled for Saturday (May 6).

Medal matches are due to conclude the European Championship on Sunday (May 7).

France, who beat Britain 44-43 in the final in Paris last year to be crowned continental champions for the first time, are already assured of a place at their home Paralympics in Paris next year.

The top two sides at the European Championship excluding France will join them at Paris 2024, with the next two best-ranked teams invited to a qualifier.

Britain have won the WWR European Championship a record seven times, including three consecutive triumphs before 2022.

They were beaten in the quarter-finals of the World Championship in Vejle last year, where hosts Denmark were the top-ranked European nation in fourth.
