In April, it was first announced that the 2021 European Rowing Junior Championships had been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. But in continuing discussions between the Munich Organising Committee (OC) and World Rowing, it was clear that the local public health requirements conformed to the World Rowing requirements for 2021 regattas. It was announced on 17 August that the European junior rowers were welcome to the 1972 Olympic venue.
The European Rowing Junior Championships were introduced in 2008.
