EHL Men KO16 draw sets stage for big showdowns in Surbiton

The EHL Men KO16 draw has served up a series of enticing fixtures as the path to next Easter’s FINAL8 was laid out today.

Each team will be hoping to win their two matches at the event played at Surbiton from October 3rd to 6th.

Winners of each initial KO16 match go through to a KO8 showdown from which the FINAL8 tickets are decided. Losers of the KO16 games will play in a Ranking Match for precious ranking points for each nation.

As such, the draw is effectively segmented into four sections from which one FINAL8 ticket will be decided.

The first section of the draw sees four-time medalists HC Rotterdam come up against Czechia’s TJ Plzeń Litice who made their debut last season in the EHL.

The winner of that game will come up against either Hamburger Polo Club from Germany or Austria’s SV Arminen.

Section two has 2019 bronze medalists Mannheimer HC going up against AHTC Wien who are back in the EHL after an 11-year break.

Next on the agenda for the victor of that one will be either six-time champions HC Bloemendaal or Spanish regular season winners Real Club de Polo.

Home hosts Surbiton are at the top of what looks to be a hugely competitive third section. They will face Waterloo Ducks, a rematch of their 2019 KO16 battle in Eindhoven.

The other English side, Wimbledon, and Scotland’s Western Wildcats lie in wait in the next phase of this quadrant.

The fourth section sees debutants Grasshopper Club Zurich from Switzerland enter the fray against French champions Lille MHC.

They will hope to advance to the KO8 to play either Banbridge from Ireland or Belgium’s Royal Léopold – the Irish side will hope to repeat their 2016 heroics when they eliminated Léo.

The match schedule will be released on Thursday afternoon when tickets will also go on sale.

EHL Men KO16, October 3rd to 6th 2024 (at Surbiton Hockey Club, England)

HC Rotterdam (NED) v TJ Plzeń Litice (CZE)

Hamburger Polo Club (GER) v SV Arminen (AUT)

Mannheimer HC (GER) v AHTC Wien (AUT)

HC Bloemendaal (NED) v Real Club de Polo (ESP)

Elders appointed new chairman of EHL board

Peter Elders has been appointed as the new chairman of the Euro Hockey League board following the latest board meeting.

The Dutchman joined the EHL board earlier this year and is looking forward to the next evolution of the world’s best club hockey competition.

“The EHL’s history is synonymous with innovation and I am looking forward to helping to bring it on further,” he said.

“It is an exciting time with last season seeing the Wagener Stadium sell out for our GRAND FINALS while this season, the women’s competition will expand significantly to 12 teams.

“I would like to thank not only our outgoing EHL board members and outgoing chairman Hans Erik Tuijt, but frankly all of those special people involved in the past like Jons Hensel on their excellent contributions to making this famous competition what it is today.”

Off the field, EuroHockey recently increased its shareholding in the EHL to 83%. Elders is also a board member of EuroHockey and so he sees the synergy between the two organisations allowing a healthy space to develop in.

“I am looking to use my experience as a board member of EuroHockey to the benefit of the EHL and look forward to increasing the mutual collaboration between the two organisations.”

Welcoming his arrival, EuroHockey President Marcos Hofmann added: “Peter is no stranger to the engine-room of any tournament from his years in umpiring and officiating. He has been a Board member at KNHB, which is the gauge we all measure event management.

“And, from my experience working with him, he likes pushing out-of-the-box ideas and minority opinions, both very much needed going forward. EHL needs exactly this set of skills at this time, and Peter brings them to the room.”
