Austria’s men are already on their way to Cardiff for the European Qualifier for the Men’s World Cup 2023. The qualification is easy to tell – if you win the next two games, you are in the World Cup. So there are 2 valuable World Cup places waiting for 8 participating nations.

However, the practical implementation is not so easy. With Scotland, Austria’s men’s team expects a strong opponent in the first game, but they were defeated twice at the last European Championship. In the final only in the shoot-out. Both teams are also closest together in the FIH ranking – Austria # 19 and Scotland # 20.

Only a win brings Austria one step closer to qualifying for the World Cup. The winner of the game France versus Poland would be waiting there in the next game. From the paper form, it is most likely France, which is ranked # 1 in this tournament and 13th in the world rankings.

But even as a loser, a total of 3 games are played by each team. Every game brings important points in the world ranking – the world ranking points count twice in this competition.

All games are broadcast live on EurohockeyTV.
