Scheduled to take place from March 5 to 7, it will be the 36th edition of the event and the first time since 1975 that Poland has hosted the Championships.
Five qualifying events will be held beforehand on March 4 – a decision made to allow an even distribution of finals across the next three days.
The first final of the meet will be the women’s shot put, which Paulina Guba will look to win in front of a home crowd after claiming the outdoor European title in 2018.
Britain’s Laura Muir may defend her 3000-metres title in one of the opening day’s standout events, having won gold over the distance at the past two Championships.
The women’s and men’s 400m were won by Switzerland’s Léa Sprunger and Norway’s Karsten Warholm in 2019 – both of whom usually race over the 400m hurdles – and these finals will headline day two along with the men’s 60m.
The final day will see the Polish 4x400m women’s team defend their title in the final race of the Championships, with both 800m finals and the women’s 60m final also taking place.
World Para Athletics Grand Prix postponed
The final undisturbed event on the World Para Athletics Grand Prix schedule has been postponed, meaning the entire season has been wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic as things stand.
The Tunis Grand Prix was due to take place from June 26 to 28, but has now been postponed.
It was the last Grand Prix meeting of the series when the schedule was first released, and the event was also the last one not yet postponed or cancelled.
Of the nine other events on the schedule, six have been cancelled and three have been postponed.
Local organisers and World Para Athletics are still holding out hope that the Paris Grand Prix, Arizona Grand Prix, Tunis Grand Prix and European Championships can be rescheduled.
Polish city Bydgoszcz was due to host the 2020 European Championships.
