The new men’s Euro Hockey League ranking positions have been finalised for the 2023/24 season following the conclusion of the EuroHockey Club Trophy II last week.
The ranking positions form the basis for qualifiers for each country in next season’s EHL.
As previously posted, the main move sees Belgium increase their entry quota to three teams as they leap into third place in the overall rankings ahead of Spain who move back to fourth.
Otherwise, the breakdown of entries will remain the same for 2023/24. The Netherlands and Germany retain their three places in the EHL Men’s competition while England and France also get two spots each.
With one place each, Austria is seventh, Scotland remain in eighth place in the rankings, Ireland move up to ninth thanks to Banbridge’s Trophy II victory last week. They go above Switzerland who are now tenth while the Czech Republic get the final spot in the competition.
Outside of the EHL qualifying positions, Ukraine moved up four places into 12th while Wales were another big mover, going from 15th to 13th thanks to Cardiff & Met’s Trophy I victory.
Portugal stay in 14th place while Denmark are up to a highest position of 15th place; Türkiye, in 20th spot, appear on the list for the first time.
