Hosts The Netherlands will begin the defence of their International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) Powerchair Hockey European Championships title tomorrow when action gets underway in De Rijp.
The Dutch, who are also the world champions, will be hoping to back-up their European success in 2012 when they beat neighbours Belgium in the final.
After an opening ceremony, they will begin tomorrow with a Group A clash against Switzerland.
Germany and Spain are the other two teams in Group A.
As top seeds, the hosts have been kept apart from Belgium, the second seeds, in the group stage.
The Belgians will begin their Group B campaign against Italy in the first game on Thursday (July 14) with Finland and Denmark also featuring in the group.
Other games on the second day of competition are The Netherlands v Germany, Finland v Belgium, Spain v Switzerland and Denmark v Italy.
The top two in each group will contest the semi-finals, which will be played on Saturday (July 16).
The final will be a day later on Sunday (July 17).
The tournament had originally been due to take place in Spanish city Alcobendas but they pulled out in February.
It was claimed that organisational issues, communication misunderstanding and political issues had led to the withdrawal.
Under its former name, electric wheelchair hockey, powerchair hockey was one of nine new sports or disciplines to apply for inclusion at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, only to fail to make it through to the final stage.
It was eliminated along with powerchair football, 3x3 intellectually impaired basketball, amputee football, one person multi-hull sailing, blind match racing sailing and 3-on-3 wheelchair basketball.
Only badminton and taekwondo were ultimately approved by the International Paralympic Committee Governing Board.
