Bad news for Belgium as they lose their 3rd EHL ticket

The last results gathered by our representatives were not sufficient to keep 3 representatives. In the Ladies, on the other hand, the Belgians will be competing for the very first time in the prestigious European competition

Very bad news for our country which will no longer have 3 representatives in EHL for the 2022-2023 season. Indeed, despite the title won by the Waterloo Ducks in 2019 or the bronze medal won by the Leo, this year, during the Final 4 reshaped due to the pandemic, in Amsterdam, the results achieved in recent years, and this week. -end during the EHL Ranking Cup, by the Dragons (2 wins and 5th place) and La Gantoise (1 victory, 1 loss and 13th place), were unfortunately not enough to keep a place in the Top 3 of European nations which is occupied by Germany, the Netherlands and Spain.

In the latest ranking published by the European Federation, our country now comes in 4th position ahead of England. On the other hand, and as expected, among the Women, Belgium made a good entry into EHL (8 clubs) thanks to the excellent performance of La Gantoise, undefeated in Lille (4 successes), and the good performance of Braxgata (3rd ) in the same European Club Cup B.
