IKF EU World Korfball Championship Qualifier – B
October 31 @ 8:00 am - November 5 @ 5:00 pm
The two IKF EU World Korfball Championship Qualifiers come instead of the original planned IKF European Korfball Championship and offers the European senior teams to qualify for the IKF World Korfball Championship 2023 in Chinese Taipei. Depending on the number of countries participating in the IKF EU WKC Qualifiers and the final call of the IKF Council regarding the number of participating teams for the IKF WKC 2023, the total number of qualification spots will be decided. Most likely there will be either six (three per Qualifier) or four (two per Qualifier) WKC spots to play for.
The group allocation is as follows:
IKF EU World Korfball Championship Qualifier A: England – Poland – Slovakia – Ireland – Greece – Serbia. The Czech city of Kolín will host this event from 17 to 22 October 2022 (event page)
IKF EU World Korfball Championship Qualifier B: Hungary – Catalonia – Turkey – Scotland – Switzerland – Wales – France. The Turkish city of Antalya will host this event from 31 October to 5 November 2022.
The so called ‘slang method’ has been used in the process of allocation of the countries to assure the most balanced groups. The starting position of each country is fully based on the ranking of the most recent events, using the combined ranking of: the IKF EKC A-Division 2021, IKF EKC B-Division 2021 and IKF EKC First Round 2019. The two countries that did not participate in the mentioned events have been allocated to the groups based upon an open draw.
