The IKF KCL R3 is over: PKC and Borgerhout qualify for the Korfball Champions League Final

The Belgian city of Herentals hosted on 6 and 7 January 2023 the decisive 3rd Round of this brand new European IKF Korfball Champions League, the last qualification event for the IKF Korfball Champions League Final. [Press kit booklet here]

After 3 previous qualifying events (the R1A & R1B played on September 2022 in Portugal and Poland, and the R2 on November in the Czech Republic) now it was time for the current Belgian and Dutch national finalists to join this competition.

TuS Schildgen from Germany and Trojans KC from England qualified for the IKF Korfball Champions League R3 after becoming the finalists of the R2, and they were ready to face the Dutch PKC/Vertom and the Belgian K. Borgerhout/Groen-Wit K.C. Sadly, a late withdrawal of the English team on December 30th due to unfortunate family circumstances forced an urgent adjustment to the tournament schedule.

The event continued therefore with the three remaining competitors based on the planned semi-final and final format with the original ranking of the teams for the KCL Round 3 as:

1- PKC/Vertom, NED
2- K. Borgerhout/Groen-Wit K.C., BEL
3- TuS Schildgen 1932 e.V., GER
4- Trojans KC, ENG

The withdrawal of Trojans KC means that PKC/Vertom earned a bye for the planned semi-final against Trojans KC and thereby automatically advances to the final of Round 3 on Saturday. The semi-final on Friday between K. Borgerhout/Groen-Wit K.C. and TuS Schildgen 1932 e.V. continud as planned and after an intense match, the Belgian club became the winner of this match by 20-7, and faced PKC/Vertom on Saturday, with a final score 14-25 in favour od the Dutch.

These results means that the last two remaining places at stake for the grand final of IKF’s inaugural KCL season will be ocupied by the Dutch PKC/Vertom and the Belgian K. Borgerhout/Groen-Wit K.C.

FINAL RESULTS 

 

The winner of KCL Round 3 will play against the current champion of the Belgian Topkorfbal national league, Floriant Merelbeke, number two ranked team of the IKF KCL Final. On the other hand, number two of Round 3 will face the champions of the last season’s Korfbal League, Fortuna/Delta Logistiek, reigning Dutch champion and the highest ranked team in the KCL Final.

The IKF Korfball Champions League Final is programmed for the weekend of 10-11 February 2023 in the city of Delft in the Netherlands. The number three of KCL Round 3 will continue their European journey in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, for the IKF Korfball Champions League Challenger Final. This event is scheduled for 4 and 5 February 2023.

All ready for the IKF European Korfball Championship A – Division 2021!

The IKF European Korfball Championship A – Division 2021 is ready to start in the Belgian city of Antwerp. National teams from the Netherlands, Portugal, England, Hungary, Germany, Czech Republic, Catalonia and Belgium will compete from 25 to 30 October for the gold medal and become the new European korfball champion.

The Royal Belgian Korfball Federation (Koninklijke Belgische Korfbalbond) is 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 now the current situation around Europe and the high percentage of vaccinated allow to organise indoor competitions following certain prevention protocols to avoid spreading the virus. These are the reasons why the IKF has been working very hard during these last 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 are welcome to come and see all games live at Boeckenberg Sports Center (group phase) and Lotto Arena (semi-finals & finals). They will be required to follow the safety and prevention protocols against covid-19 approved by the IKF and the local authorities. You can buy your tickets on LOC’s website www.ekc2021.com
