Following the conclusion of the 2022 EuroHockey Indoor Championships, the official EHF Ranking for Indoor Nations has been updated with the entrants for the 2024 competitions also confirmed.
For the 2024 competitions, the top tier will change to a 10-team competition, meaning the top four finishers from last February’s Indoor Championship II for men and women will be promoted, joining the six teams who competed in the Championship last week.
For the men, this means Spain, Poland, Croatia and Ukraine join Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.
On the women’s side, Spain, Belgium, Poland and Switzerland move up to compete with Germany, Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, Czech Republic and Türkiye.
