IKF Korfball Champions League Satellite Final 2023
January 27 @ 8:00 am - January 28 @ 9:00 pm
Update 26 January 2023
Contrary to previous communication, KC Barcelona will not compete in the IKF Korfball Champions League Satellite Final. This is due to the decision of the IKF EXCO to only allow the participation of KC Barcelona out of competition, followed by the decision of KC Barcelona to withdraw. In the invitation process, the IKF made a mistake in the communication, for which the IKF apologizes. When KC Barcelona was invited to participate it should have been made clear from the beginning that this would be out of competition, but this was not stated.
The IKF EXCO decided that there should be no replacement teams in the IKF KCL Satellite Final as the competition model does not foresee any criteria for inviting substitution teams from the IKF KCL R1. Furthermore, the IKF EXCO argues it is not fair for the teams that qualified for the Satellite Final to play in an equal position against a team that did not qualify from Round 1 and did not take part in Round 2.
The IKF knows that this communication has caused a lot of inconvenience, but in light of fairness and transparency, the IKF EXCO will not revoke the decision taken, as described above.
Therefore, the competition will continue with the three qualified teams playing a round-robin, according to the match schedule as published on the event page.
The IKF Korfball Champions League Satellite Final 2023 will be hosted by the Catalan Korfball Federation (FCK) in cooperation with CK Vallparadís, from 27-28 January 2023.
