Official websiteeurohockey.org

The EuroHockey Junior Championship is an international field hockey competition for men and women organized by the European Hockey Federation (EHF). The men's tournament was founded in 1976, while the women's was founded in 1977. The tournament serves as a qualifier for the Men's and Women's Junior World Cups.[1]

Competition Format[edit]

The tournament usually comprises 8 teams, while some editions have featured more and less.

Teams are split into two pools, playing in a round-robin format. The top two teams in each pool move forward to contest the medal matches, while the bottom two (or more) teams playoff to avoid relegation to the EuroHockey Junior Championship II.
