Europe 02 September 2015 - Edging out several other competitive proposals, the one put together by the UK Mahjong Association has been formally accepted as the host for the next European Riichi Championship to be held in 2016.

While the host organization may be fairly new, it's membership is comprised of veteran mahjong players in the European riichi mahjong scene. That combined experience allowed them to edge out other groups vying for the host bid, to include the original offering from Poland, and more recently from Russia.

Although other venues and dates are still being considered, the proposed event will host one hundred players playing ten hanchen over three days, likely to take place at the North Hants Golf Club aiming for the weekend of October 7-9 in 2016.

More news on this exciting event as it becomes available.
