Recently the IKF Competitions Committee organised the draw for the IKF European Korfball Championship (IKF EKC) to take place from 25 October 2014. The draw was based on the most recent IKF ranking dated 5 November 2013 with teams drawn in pairs.
16 national teams will compete to become the next IKF European Korfball Champion on Sunday 2 November. The tournament starts with pool matches on the first three days. Pools A and B contain the top 8 ranked teams and pools C and D the bottom 8 ranked teams. The teams finishing 1st to 3rd in pools A and B join with the teams finishing 1st in pools C and D to form a group of 8 teams to form a top group for the quarter finals while the remaining teams will play quarter finals towards places 9 to 16. Quarter finals take place on Wednesday 29 October.
During the closing days of the tournament in Maia, Portugal, the teams from Slovakia and Turkey will compete for the “Jan Hanekroot Cup”. They have, therefore, been placed in different first round pools.
The pools are:
|Pool A||Pool B|
|Pool C||Pool D|
