Each continent delivers its own continental championships across a range of disciplines of football.
These continental championships not only allow for an increasing number of nations to take part in representative football, they also act as a gateway to the global championships.
It is not only national teams which compete in continental events, club competitions are delivered too.
2017 saw the staging of the European u19 (m) championships and the European Flag Championships (w + m) in Denmark.
The European Club Championships, the NEFL, were also delivered through the Contintinetal Committee for Europe.
