We are happy to announce the IKF Europa Shield 2016 is back in the IKF Calendar 2016.
After the disappointing message 24 June by IKF Europe of the cancellation of this event the Deutsche Turner Bund in combination with Schweriner Korfball Club ’67 from Castrop Rauxel showed immediate interest to host and organise the IKF Europa Shield 2016.
We reached agreement and the IKF Europa Shield is played from Friday afternoon 22 January till Sunday afternoon 24 January 2016 in Castrop Rauxel, Germany. The venue is Sportshall of Willy-Brandt-Gesamtschule (WBG), Bahnhofstrasse 160, Castrop-Rauxel.
This is the same venue as in 2012 was used for the IKF EShield.
BEC Korfball Club from England is the 2015 IKF EShield winner.
We are confident the DTB and Schweriner Korfball Club ’67 organise a very good event. The DTB has the right to enter 2 teams to this event as organiser.
The IKF will invite participants in due course based on the existing rules
