UKK WUM Warszawa and 1908 SZAC Budapest banned from international competition next year

Following the late withdrawal of UKK WUM Warszawa at this years IKF Europa Cup final round and 1908 SZAC Budapest at the IKF Europa Shield the IKF Executive Committee has decided that both clubs will not be allowed to represent their country in next years IKF Europa Cup or IKF Europa Shield. The clubs have been banned to take part in any IKF event until 1 July 2018.

Furthermore, a fine has been imposed upon the Polish Korfball Federation (PZKorf) and Hungarian Korfball Association (HKA) of 1,000 euros in line with the IKF disciplinary procedures 2015. Under the IKF Regulations, a national federation is responsible for any acts of its members with regard to IKF competitions.

This decision follows the stricter line that was announced clearly during last IKF Congress in 2015, Antwerp (Belgium). Late withdrawals leave the IKF and Local Organiser Committee with both organisational and financial problems. Apart from the negative publicity for the specific tournament and korfball in general.

This has been a great tournament and organization!
