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

For men's national teams this is the lowest tier. There is promotion and relegation.[1] The one or two first ranked teams qualify for the next EuroHockey Championship III and are replaced by the one or two lowest-ranked teams from that tournament.
