The IBJJF gives tournaments weighting which helps calculate the number of points an athlete can win via their participation. For the 2017/2018 IBJJF calendar the European Championship has a weighting of 4 alongside the Pan-American Championship (jiu-jitsu) making it second in importance only to the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship which has a weighting of 7.

From 2004 the championship was held near Lisbon, Portugal,[2] in 2022 it was moved to Rome, Italy after skipping 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]
