The IKF is happy to announce that the next edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2019 will be hosted in Bonson, France.
The event will take place in the weekend of 6 and 7 July 2019 and subscription is open for all countries around the world. Just like the last years the event will consist of a Senior and U19 category. The best ranked European team in both categories will become European Beach Korfball Champion 2019.
Decisive in granting the organisation of the event to the Fédération Korfbal France (FKF) is the fact that the FKF is getting full support of the municipality of Bonson. From the beginning of the bidding process the municipality showed great ambition and willingness to host the event within its borders. Bonson is located in the heart of the Loire department in the beautiful Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region close to Saint-Etienne. With the presence of the oldest korfball club in France, FJEP Bonson (founded in 1983) it is clear that the city already knows the power of korfball.
With the introduction of the Beach Korfball World Cups last year, the IKF invests in the global development of beach korfball. Every continent now has the opportunity to organise a World Cup. It is more than likely that in 2019 another Beach Korfball World Cup will take place in the continent of Asia. Confirmation of this event is expected before the end of the year.
