Given the announcement on 11th May of the change of dates to the EuroHockey Championships 2021 which will now be played 4th -13th June 2021 (click here) the EHF has decided to make some changes to the 2021 EHF Trophy and Challenge events.
There are four club events that will feature club teams from countries who are due to play in the EuroHockey Championships in Amsterdam and potentially these clubs may have international players playing in them.
The EHF has therefore decided that the EuroHockey club events below which were due to be played at Whitsun (21-24 May 2021) will now be moved to Easter (2-5 April 2021).
The following EuroHockey club events will be played at Easter 2021 (2-5 April 2021)
Men’s Trophy I
Men’s Trophy II
Women’s Challenge I
The following EuroHockey club events will be played at Whitsun 2021 (21 – 24 May 2021)
Men’s Challenges I-II-III
Women’s Challenges II-III
The EHF President, Marijke Fleuren said” We have taken these decisions bearing in mind what is fairest to all involved, in particular, the impact on our athletes.”
She reiterated her message about event planning for 2021 “As we stated already, all of the planning for 2021 is based on the hope the COVID19 will be more under control, that there will be gain free and easy travel within Europe. Should that not be the case and WHO and Government restrictions are still in place, then this decision will be revisited with our stakeholders.”
