The application of Suriname is noteworthy. Korfball was played for many decades in Suriname during the time it was a Dutch colony, but after independence in 1975, formal korfball structures gradually disappeared in the Caribbean country in South America, and Suriname was expelled as member of the International Korfball Federation some years ago. However, korfball continued to be played in school without a formal federation taking care.

Following a recent initiative by former Dutch international player Gerald van Dijk. A group of players with Surinamese roots in the Netherlands revived the Federation, and formally established the Surinaamse Korfbal Federatie. The SKF plans to actively work on the development of korfball in Suriname, along with strong international competitive ambitions, as they intend to participate in next year’s IKF Panamerican Korfball Championship in Cali (Colombia) which serves as a qualification event for the 2019 IKF World Korfball Championship.

The first Continental Championship of the year is the IKF Pan-American Korfball Championship (IKF PAKC). This championship will be celebrated in Cali, Colombia. From Friday 2 March until Sunday 4 March the Colombian Korfball Federation is in charge of the organisation of the second edition of the IKF PAKC. With at least five countries participating, the first two teams of the event will automatically qualify for the IKF WKC.

The second Continental Championship of the year is the All Africa Korfball Championship (IKF AAKC). This championship will be celebrated in the city of Chitungwiza – Harare, Zimbabwe. From Friday 27 April until Sunday 29 April the Zimbabwe Korfball Federation is in charge of the organisation of the fourth edition of the IKF AAKC. With two secured places for Africa on the IKF WKC and South Africa being the host of the IKF WKC, only the best African team qualifies for the IKF WKC. In the case of South Africa winning the championship, also the number two of the African Continent will qualify.

The announcement of the other two IKF Continental Championships in 2018; IKF Asia-Oceania Korfball Championship and the IKF European Korfball Championship will follow in a later stadium. Both events will be organised later in the year.
