Eligible teams are those from countries that are not qualified for the Division B championship, including countries that do not currently have a position on the IWRF World Ranking List.

IWRF President, John Bishop stated; “We are grateful that this fully sanctioned championship was able to be organized on short notice by Christoph Werner. Providing competition opportunities at every level of the game is essential for teams to improve. We know the athletes are excited to see this tournament happen, and they are looking forward to challenging their rivals in Grosswallstadt this fall”.

 

Europe is IWRF’s largest zone with 17 internationally active member countries, and 7 others developing the sport on a national level.
