Morocco, Switzerland and Sri Lanka have been accepted as (Associate) Member of the International Korfball Federation in the General Meeting of the IKF in Antwerp (BEL) Saturday 7 November 2015.
The new members were proud to join the IKF and have been working hard on the development of korfball. Moroccan teams have been participating in unofficial U19 tournaments, while Sri Lanka announced it would take part in next year’s Asian Championship which is due to be held in India.
The three countries were joined by six countries whose membership had been given by the IKF Council, and who were ratified today: Philippines, Ghana, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ivory Coast, and Cameroon.
The new set of members brings the IKF membership up to 67, following the expulsion of Surinam and Denmark due to lack of korfball activity.
