Change in the schedule of the 49th IKF Europa Cup.
Due to the economic crisis in Russia and the decline in the value of the roebel the Russian club team withdrew from the IKF Europa Cup in January 2015 in Belgium. This causes IKF Europe and the Belgian organisers a big problem. Despite serious efforts the IKF is not able to find another European national champion to replace the Russian champion.
In close consultation between the IKF and the organisers a regional Belgian team from the district Kempen will complete the twelve team event. This team will not be in the official competition. As a result eleven teams will compete to become the 49th IKF Europa Cup winner.
