England Korfball will welcome the national teams from Catalonia, Scotland and Wales in September for a set of international friendly matches to be played in London as part of the preparation for the IKF European Korfball Championship later this year.
With England ranked 3rd and Catalonia ranked 5th in Europe, the matches between these two teams are promising to be highly competitive. Wales’ current European ranking is 11th while Scotland is the 16th European nation on the most recent IKF World Korfball Ranking. The IKF has been encouraging its member countries to play more official friendly matches and very much welcomes the initiative by the EKA for this event in one of Europe’s premier cities.
The pre-european championship tournament will take place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 September 2014 at Whitgift Sports Centre, Croydon, South London.
