EHL Men’s KO16 draw confirmed with Hamburg to host

The line-up for the EHL Men’s KO16 has been confirmed with the tournament set to be played at Harvestehuder THC’s home in Hamburg from September 29th to October 2nd.

Overall, the draw will feature seven brand new EHL match-ups in the KO16 stage along with a rematch between Spanish giants Real Club de Polo and Club Egara, reprising their KO8 meeting from 2019.

The competition sees each club face an initial KO16 fixture. The winners of each of those games will move on to the KO8 where a ticket to next Easter’s FINAL8 will be up for grabs. The losers from the KO16 phase will face an important ranking match to determine the allocation of European tickets for 2022/23.

In the first section of the draw, Dutch side Pinoké will make their EHL debut against fellow newcomers SK Slavia Prague in the KO16 phase. The winners of that tie will meet either another of the new clubs – England’s Old Georgians – or Austrian champions SV Arminen.

The second quadrant pits Lille Metropole against AH&BC Amsterdam while Rotweiss Wettingen’s return to the EHL sees them come up against Belgian runners-up Gantoise.

The next quartet of sides features that Polo and Egara contest with the victors in the KO16 going through to the KO8 where they will face the winners of either hosts Harvestehuder THC or Scottish side Western Wildcats.

And the final section pits French champions CA Montrouge against Lisnagarvey while Wimbledon are up against Hamburger Polo Club in their first EHL fixture.

The full fixture schedule will be confirmed in due course at Harvestehuder THC looking forward to hosting the EHL for a second time having previously been the venue for a ROUND1 tournament in 2015.
