EROPEAN UNIVERSITY HOCKEY LEAGUE
Everything started with the initial thought of pan-European expansion through the creation of four divisions to save money and time:
Eastern (Slovakia, Czech republic, Austria, Poland, Hungary)
Western (Germany I, France, Belgium, The Netherlands)
North (Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark) and
South (Germany II, Austria II, Switzerland, Slovenia)
Presently the EUHL consists of 13 teams from 3 countries – Czech republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary but it is already assured that next year this number will be higher. The new applicants come from Latvia, Estonia, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, United Kingdom, France and Hungary etc., accompanied by American Universities and associations from the USA.
