The late withdrawal of Kékvölgy SE from Hungary led to a change in the original tournament set-up for the IKF KCL R1A. The teams will play each other in a round-robin format, but the qualification criteria for the successive KCL events remain unchanged.
The live draw for the IKF Korfball Champions League Round 1 took place on July 6. Through this draw, the teams were divided into the two Round 1s, in Cardiff and Lisbon.
Teams were allocated to the events by drawing in pairs. These pairs were based on the IKF Korfball Champions League ranking, which is based on the previous season. Two teams were already placed; Welsh champion Cardiff City Korfball Club and the runner-up Newport Centurions. The Welsh Korfball Association is hosting the event in collaboration with Cardiff City Korfball Club, which was therefore placed in the IKF KCL Round 1-B. To get to 8 teams, Newport Centurions were invited as extra participant and was therefore also placed in the IKF KCL R1B. The two qualified Portuguese teams are both not hosting the event, and are therefore included in the draw instead of having a fixed place in Lisbon.
