Euro ParaHockey Championships in 2017

Next year alongside the Rabo EuroHockey Championships 2017, the fourth edition of the Euro ParaHockey Championships will take place 20 – 23 August. The previous edition took place in 2015, alongside the Unibet EuroHockey Championships in London in 2015.

Portugal is the reigning champion and they will be back in 2017 to defend their title, most recently winning the ABN-AMRO Integration Cup held at KHC Dragons in Belgium in September.

The Euro ParaHockey Championships will see  teams from Germany, Italy, Portugal, England, Spain, Belgium and hopefully some new comers compete for the trophy, with the finals being played on the Wagener Stadium.
