Info about the event
The Polish city of Wroclaw were hosting this IKF European Korfball Championship B-Division 2021, with participants from Ireland, Greece, Scotland, Switzerland, Slovakia, Turkey, Wales and Poland competing from 4 to 9 October for the gold medal at this European B-Division championship.
The full match schedule and event rules were available on korfball.sport/?p=24821.
The Polski Związek Korfballu (Polish Korfball Association) was the local organiser of this long-awaited event that was initially planned to take place in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic forced to postpone it one year, but the current situation around Europe and the high percentage of vaccinated allowed to organise indoor competitions following certain prevention protocols to avoid spreading the virus. These are the reasons why the IKF had been working very hard during these previous months to have an accurate IKF COVID-19 protocol which will allow a safe interaction between all participants in the next international events to come.
All visitors and spectators were able to access for free to the venue and they were required to follow the safety and prevention protocols against covid-19 approved by the IKF and the local authorities.
Fans and supporters around the world were be able to watch and enjoy all games through the IKF live streamings available on www.worldkorfball.sport and youtube.com/ikfchannel.
