The European Hockey Federation is delighted to announce that the EHF U16 Hockey5s Mediterranean Cup is already a big success, with 8 boys teams and 6 girls teams confirmed to participate.

The participating countries will be:

Boys – Malta, Croatia, Greece, Slovenia, Italy, Morocco, Egypt and Turkey

Girls – Greece, Croatia, Egypt, Italy, Turkey and Bulgaria

Malta Hockey Pitch and Clubhouse

The tournament will take place in Malta on the 26th – 28th June. This tournament is a development event, discussed and planned in last year’s Mediterranean Hockey Forum in Catania. The level of interest has already surpassed our expectations and the EHF Development Committee hopes that this event will help all participants gain valuable experience and help prepare their teams for the 2016/2017 EHF Hockey5s competitions which will be the pathway for the Youth Olympic Games in 2018 in Argentina.
