Purpose
Almost no studies have documented or analysed sporting events for deaf players at the elite level. The aim of the study was to report on the 2nd U21 European Deaf Football Championship, analyse selected offensive actions and compare them with the 1st European Deaf Sports Organization (EDSO) U21 Championship and Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) U21 events (2015 and 2017), as well as create a ranking of finalists of the deaf U21 tournaments.

Methods
Counting analyses were performed on the basis of video recordings from the stadiums of 1st and 2nd EDSO U21. Nineteen matches were analysed with reference to the number of goals, shots on target, and shots missed.

Results
The mean number of goals scored per match during the 2nd U21 (1st U21) Championship was 2.25 ± 2.27/team (1.81 ± 1.53). The number of shots on target and missed was 8.1 ± 5.7/team/match (6.9 ± 4.9) and 6.2 ± 3.9/team/match (5.4 ± 3.7). In 1st and 2nd EDSO Championships, the most offensive play was presented by the teams of Turkey, Poland, Russia, and Ukraine.

Conclusions
The winner of the tournament was the team with the highest shooting efficiency and the highest number of crosses in all matches. The analyses of the 2nd U21 can be useful for the organization of coaching. Organizers of events for deaf athletes, however, do not pay much attention to careful registration of the event materials and match statistics, which are very important for the promotion of events for deaf athletes.
