Belgium wins the senior and the U19 IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2023

The 3rd edition of a spectacular the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2023 has finished in the Polish city of Wroclaw. From 25 to 26 August, 13 teams from 3 different continents competed to be the new champion in this new and fascinating korfball discipline, recently included in the official program of the next World Games 2025 in Chengdu, China.

The 2 fields located at Wrocław Academy of Physical Education in Wrocław became the perfect scenario for great and exciting matches, where all teams had the chance to compete for the win. The sand and the intensity of this discipline guaranteed a lot of tight matches, and lots of them were decided during exciting golden goal extra periods.

Australia, Belgium, Catalonia, England, France, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, Türkiye, United States Of America and Wales were the participants in the senior category, and the Belgians were the ones who reached the top position after winning the senior final against the Netherlands by 6-8. They reached the final after winning their semi-final vs Poland by 7-10 in a great match. Congratulations!

The Dutch team got the silver medal by fighting until the last second of every match, like they did in the final vs BEL and also during the thought semi-final vs USA which they won by one single goal (4-3).

For the Bronze medal, Poland, the current world champions, played against an intense and competitive strong squad from the United States. The Americans were leading the game with 3 goals in advantage, but in the last 3 minutes, an impressive comeback from the Polish team decided the game in favour of the locals with a close 11-12.
