The IKF regrets to announce the amendment of the IKF U21 WKC tournament schedule, due to the late and unexpected withdrawal of the U21 Dominican Republic squad.
The National Korfball Federation of Dominican Republic (FEKORD) just informed the IKF that, despite of earlier affirmation of their national government, the necessary funding is missing to make the trip to Europe and participate in the IKF U21 WKC in Budapest, Hungary. A sad and unfortunate decision for the talented Dominican team and of course the other participating countries.
There will be no replacement of the Dominican Republic team. With just over a month to go until the start of the event it is not possible to find a (competitive) replacement. This means that the tournament will be played with 11 instead of 12 participants.
Please find underneath the final tournament composition. The exact tournament match schedule you can find at the event information. The IKF is confident that with the confirmed countries a successful U21 WKC event will take place.
