    The men's event features Britain's Olympic all-around and pommel horse champion Max Whitlock, 2019 European all-around champion Nikita Nagornyy of Russia and Ireland’s pommel horse star Rhys McClenaghan.

    Whitlock will also be joined by fellow Brit Joe Fraser, the 2019 parallel bars world champion.

    Melanie de Jesus dos Santos of France will not defend her European all-around crown after deciding to focus on the uneven bars.

    Switzerland's 2015 European all-around champion Giulia Steingruber will be among those hoping to capitalise on Dos Santos' absence along with Minsk 2019 European Games gold medallist Angelina Melnikova and her Russian team mate Viktoria Listunova.
