IKF WKC 2023 bidding status

The IKF Executive Committee received three (3) bids from IKF member countries as potential organisers of the IKF World Korfball Championship 2023 (IKF WKC).

The bids came from (in alphabetical order) Chinese Taipei, Czech Republic and The Netherlands.

All three bids are received in time and look promising. The challenge is to make the bids even better in the months ahead of us.

The IKF Exco appointed a committee of three (1) to evaluate the bids, (2) to support the countries in further development of the bids, (3) prepare a report for the IKF Exco and the IKF Council and (4) guide the countries towards a formal presentation on day 2 of the IKF Congress Tuesday 6 August 2019 in Durban, South Africa. The presentations are open for all korfball involved persons present in Durban, except for all representatives of the three bidding countries. The IKF Council will evaluate the presentations and the report in its meeting Wednesday 7 August 2019. Based on these evaluations the IKF Council will take a decision. The decision will be made public in the IKF General Meeting Friday 9 August by Jan Fransoo, IKF President.

The evaluation committee of three consists of Joana Faria, Gert Dijkstra and Frans Walvis (as chair).

Upcoming events: IKF ECup 2019 and IKF EShield 2019

Since that the last IKF event of 2018 had been played a few weeks ago, it is time to look foward to the first IKF events of 2019. Traditionally, these are the IKF Europa Cup and the IKF Europa Shield, both club events.

IKF Europa Cup 2019

The IKF Europa Cup 2019 will be held in Kortrijk, Belgium, from the 10th of January up untill the 12th of January.

IKF Europa Shield 2019

The 17th edition of the IKF Europa Shield will be organized by the Czech Korfball Association in Prostějov, from the 25th till the 27th of January. The Czech Republic is represented by two club teams during the event, and those are accompanied by club teams from Englang, Hungary, Turkey, Catalonia, Germany and Portugal. The teams are divided into two pools:

Pool A Pool B
Bec Korfball Club (ENG) Schweriner-Korfball-Club e.V. 67 (GER)
Grupo Desportivo dos Bons Dias (POR) CK Vallparadis (CAT)
KCC SOKOL České Budějovice (CZE) Szentendrei Honvéd Kinizsi SE (HUN)
Haydarpasa Lisesi Sport Club (TUR) SK RG Prostějov (CZE)

In 2018, KV Adler Rauxel won the IKF EShield. With them being absent this year, the chances of the runner-up of 2018, Bec Korfball Club, seem to have increased. The English club team has won the Eshield in 2017 and 2016 and surerly will give it their all to win this edition too.

However, since the IKF EShield has been characterized by close results in resent years, exciting  matches resulting in surprising results can be expected during this edition.

IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe)

The IKF is proud there will be an official second beach korfball tournament in Europe in 2018:  ‘IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe)‘! The event will take place in the weekend of 11 and 12 August 2018 and will be held in Blankenberge, Belgium. The organiser is the Royal Belgian Korfball Association (KBKB).

Beach korfball is fast growing. It is played in multiple countries in all continents around the world. It is sport, fun and excitement. It is very popular with the younger age groups. Therefore the IKF is more than convinced that beach korfball helps to invest in the future of korfball and korfball4. Beach korfball has an important role in development and achieverment of longer term goals of the IKF. Again the 2018 event in Blankenberge will consist both of a Senior and an Under 19 category.

With only four (4) players needed to form a team, instead of eight in regular korfball, IKF is aiming to make it easier for national associations to initiate new korfball activities and reach new players. On the competition level IKF believes to create more equality between the teams and lower costs for national associations by having less athletes involved and using a short tournament format.

The venue of the 2018 tournament will be ‘O Neill Beach Club Blankenberge’. Again this unique accommodation is located sea side: Click here for the Beachcam

Today we disclose the Beach Korfball event logo 2018 as well.

The Belgian Beach Korfball Committee and the IKF are underway to organise a succesful event for teams, players, korfball fans and visitors.

Mr Jaap OUD passes away

The International Korfball Federation has been informed of the passing of Mr Jaap Oud, holder of the IKF Badge of Honour, on 4 August 2017 at the age of 80.

Jaap Oud served in the eighties and nineties of the twentieth century over more than a decade the Royal Dutch Korfball Federation (KNKV) as vice-president. When he stepped down in 1993 he was appointed KNKV Honorary Member.

After that period he became member of the first IKF Committee responsible for the set-up and organisation of korfball events in Europe. He served the IKF in that role for more than 13 years. In total he served the IKF for more than 20 years – since 1985 – on many occasions as jury member and IKF Coordinating Officer. In the General Meeting 21 January 2006 in Utrecht (NED)  Mr Jan Fransoo presented him with the Badge of Honour.

Jaap Oud was involved with korfball over many decades. He served his club, Groen Geel, the KNKV and the IKF – i.e. the korfball community – with great dedication and commitment.

For all his professional, volunteering and political activities he was knighted by the Dutch queen.

The IKF has lost a man with great commitment to education and development of national / international korfball. We send our sincere condolences to his wife, Jeanet, children and grandchildren.
