The EuroHockey Championship III, formerly known as the EuroHockey Nations Challenge I, is a competition for European national field hockey teams. It is the third level of European field hockey Championships for national teams.

Underneath the Championship III there exists at least one division of the EuroHockey Nations Challenge, like EuroHockey Championship IV, for the women's national teams this is the lowest tier. There is promotion and relegation.[1] The two first ranked teams qualify for the next EuroHockey Championship II and are replaced by the two lowest-ranked teams from that tournament. The teams finishing in seventh and eighth positions are relegated to the EuroHockey Championship IV and replaced by the first or two highest-ranked from that tournament.
