3rd September 2017: The EHF regrets to announce that under advice from the Tournament Medical Doctor, the Spanish teams are not allowed to play either of their final games of the EuroHockey Junior Championships.
After consultation with the TDs and the EHF Representative it was agreed that these circumstances are not provided for in the Regulations and therefore EHF Regulations for EuroHockey Championships (Outdoor) Item D6 applies.
In the Men’s EuroHockey Junior Championship, the 3rd/4th Bronze medal game was not played and Germany is awarded the Bronze medal.
In the Women’s EuroHockey Junior Championship, Spain will not play their final Pool C v Ireland.
Given these unprecedented circumstances the two TDs and the EHF Representative have agreed to defer any further decisions to the EHF Executive Board
We fully understand the importance of these decisions for all teams affected.
We wish all players a full recovery.
