EuroHockey Indoor Junior Championships update  

Posted On 03/12/2021

Brussels 16.30 CET, Friday, 3rd December 2021 

Following extensive collaboration with our hosts since the increased travel and quarantine restrictions were announced all over Europe in the past week, the following has been agreed upon:  

The following events are CANCELLED:  

17 – 19 December 2021

Indoor Junior Championship, Men

   Nymburk, CZE

17 – 19 December 2021

Indoor Junior Championship, Women

   Lucerne, SUI

 

The following events will GO AHEAD based on the information as of 3rd December 2021:

EHF President, Marijke Fleuren said “We are very disappointed to be canceling the EuroHockey Indoor Junior Championships divisions in Nymburk and Olten. We understand how devastating it is for athletes who have trained for these events for such a long time. 

When we moved them from January, we were confident that we would be able to deliver them safely in December. However, along with our hosts, we don’t believe that it is possible, given the very strict travel and quarantine conditions in the Czech Republic and Switzerland, to deliver these events.

In principle, when we returned to hockey last Easter, we agreed that if our hosts are ready to host and teams want to travel and we deemed it safe, we would endeavor to deliver our events. We have the assurance from our hosts in Parades and Sveti Ivan Selina that they have measures in place, and their Government restrictions will allow these events to continue. We will work with our hosts and the teams to ensure the safety of all.”

 

Please note:  

The next Indoor Junior Championship events will take place in January 2023, with the 2021 hosts (Switzerland and the Czech Republic) getting the first right of refusal to host. The EHF will go out for entries and with more information in due course.
Based on the current number of teams, please note that the usual promotion and relegation will apply from Parades, 2 teams to be promoted and from Sveti Ivan Zelina 1 team to be promoted.
