EuroHockey Qualifiers, Men and Women 2022 – update

Posted On 27/07/2022

Update 4th May 2022, Brussels, Belgium: Due to the exclusion of Russia and Belarus, the EuroHockey Qualifier events had to be reviewed. 

In particular, the men’s events had to be revised as the event in Vienna had only 2 teams remaining. Therefore 2 teams have been added to the panel of teams which makes all events 4-team events.

This process was carefully discussed in length and the aim was to try to have the pools as fair as possible and to have the least disruption for teams possible. 

A review of the EuroHockey Qualifying process and implications for 2024 will be published in due course.

The dates and pools are stated below. One team from each event will qualify for the EuroHockey Championships, Men and Women in 2023.
