The Netherlands beats Belgium 18-17 and becomes new U21 European champion

This last IKF U21 European Korfball Championship 2022 will be remembered by all fans after an intense and exciting 3-day tournament in the Catalan city of Terrassa.

The competition format with only 6 teams allowed all squads to play between all them in a unique league. And after day 1 it was clear that the Netherlands and Belgium will be the ones to fight for gold, but the level of both squads was really close and that fact guaranteed an exciting and tight final, as it was in the end. One last goal with 45″ left was decisive to proclaim the Dutch team the new U21 European korfball champion.

The battle for 3rd place was also one of the best attractions of the tournament, with 4 other nationals teams competing very closely and delivering intense, tight and exciting matches. A great spectacle for all korfball fans that attended Can Jofresa’s Sport Complex everyday, and for all those watching the live streams through www.worldkorfball.sport annd youtube.com/ikfchannel.

Catalonia was the final winner of this particular fight for the Bronze medal, after beating Portugal at the end of day 2 by 9-8, and be able to win all their matches, except those against BEL and NED, including the last one on day 3 vs Hungary (15-9). A perfect ending for an extraordinary and historical tournament for the Catalans.

This result forced Germany and Portugal to play on day 3 a decisive final match for 4th place: another great and tight game (16-16) decided by penalties in favour of the Portuguese squad after an exciting golden goal period with no scoring..

The IKF wants to thank all volunteers, teams and organisers for their huge efforts, making this tournament a great and successful event. Korfball is more alive than ever!

IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2021

The IKF has decided, in coordination with the participants, to relocate the IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2021. The strict corona regulations and the related high organisational costs in France make it impossible for this event to continue in France as planned. The participants indicated that they would very much appreciate the IKF U21 KWC 2021 to take place, and the Czech Korfball Association has offered to organise the event from 24–26 September in Zruč nad Sázavou. The IKF is grateful for this offer and has full confidence that the Czech Korfball Association is capable of organising a great event in the short time left. The IKF is preparing the final versions of the IKF COVID-19 protocol and IKF COVID-19 Event Rules, of which a provisional edition has been discussed with the participants.

The IKF would like to thank Fédération Korfbal France for all their efforts to host this event.

The event can be followed and watched live on www.worldkorfball.sport

Everything’s ready for the IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2021

The relocated IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2021 is ready to start this next Friday in the Czech city of Zruč nad Sázavou. After a long year and a half with no international competitions due to covid pandemic, the competition calendar starts this weekend with the IKF U21 KWC 2021.

The Czech Korfball Association offered to organise the event after the impossibility announced five weeks ago by the Fédération Korfbal France. The strict corona regulations and the related high organisational costs in France made it impossible for this event to continue in that country as planned.

Despite the short time left, the Czech Korfball Association has been able to organise, once again, a great event that will show six* U21 national squads competing from 24 to 26 September for this first trophy of the current international korfball season.

(*) UPDATE 23/9/2021, 15:00 h – Five teams will be finally participating in this 1st international korfball event after the start of the pandemic. This will unfortunately be without Slovakia. Due to a positive corona test within the team and the risk of further spreading the virus, the team is not able to participate. This despite of all the effort and preparation done by all players and technical staff during these last months. We hope we will welcome them very soon in another tournament. The final match schedule will be known at the end of the day after the team managers meeting.

(**) UPDATE 23/9/2021, 21:00 h – The final match schedule has been published.

The IKF has been working very hard during the 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 will also be required to follow the safety and prevention protocols against covid-19 approved by local authorities.

Fans around the world will be able to watch and enjoy all games through the IKF live streamings available on www.worldkorfball.sport and youtube.com/ikfchannel, with all the statistics, results, top scorers and rankings. An official website managed by the LOC is also available on zruc21.korfbal.cz, with more detailed information about the event.

The participants, match schedule* and event rules can be found on korfball.sport/?p=25048.

IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2021

The IKF is happy to announce the IKF U21 Korfball World Cup (KWC) 2021, which will be hosted by the Fédération Korfbal France in Saint-Étienne. The event will be held from 24 September till 26 September, with a possibility to start on the evening of 23 September in case the number of subscribed teams is very high. Subscription is open for all IKF members.

The IKF U21 KWC 2021 is being organised as alternative for the IKF U21 World Korfball Championship 2021, that had to be cancelled due to the corona situation. The IKF KWC is a standalone event with no direct relationship to the regular IKF U21 Competition Calendar. Participation is not connected to the IKF World Ranking. The main aim of this event is to give as many countries as possible the opportunity to offer their U21 age group the possibility to compete in an international event in the year of 2021.

The exact tournament set up will depend on the number of subscribed teams but it is anticipated to be in line with the tournament set up of the IKF U19 World Korfball Championship, having multiple games during one day.

Although the outlook for September regarding the corona virus situation in Europe currently looks positive, it may be clear that the health of everyone involved will always have the highest priority. Therefore the IKF will closely monitor the developments of the corona situation in the coming months together with the host country. In the middle of June formal evaluation is planned to decide up on the continuation of the event.

UPDATE (11-August-2021): The IKF has decided, in coordination with the participants, to relocate the IKF U21 Korfball World Cup 2022. The strict corona regulations and the related high organisational costs in France make it impossible for this event to continue in France as planned. The participants indicated that they would very much appreciate the IKF U21 KWC 2021 to take place, and the Czech Korfball Association has offered to organise the event from 24 – 26 September in Zruč nad Sázavou. The IKF is grateful for this offer and has full confidence that the Czech Korfball Association is capable of organising a great event in the short time left. The IKF is preparing the final versions of the IKF COVID-19 protocol and IKF COVID-19 Event Rules, of which a provisional edition has been discussed with the participants.

The IKF would like to thank Fédération Korfbal France for all their efforts to host this event.
