The men’s hockey team from the Country Club has traveled to Brasschaat (Belgium) to play the EHL Cup, a competition in which Gantoise HC will be measured this Thursday, September 30 (7.30pm).
This competition serves so that the country that the participating team represents, adds points for the continental ranking and thus, the Spanish League can count on a third place in the maximum European competition. An appointment that both the Club and Atlètic Terrassa will play in Easter 2022.
“We really want to play this competition because the Club has not participated in a European tournament for a long time. Furthermore, as the preseason has been short due to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, these matches will be very useful for us to continue refining our form, ” says the team’s coach, Pablo Usoz.
Regarding his opponent, he points out that “it will be a difficult opponent. It is a team that marches at the top of the Belgian league and has both national and foreign international players ”.
The reigning champions of the MGS League, if they win, on Friday, October 1 (7.30pm), will face the winner of the clash between HC ‘S-Hertogenbsoch and Saint Germain in a second match.
It will not be the only Spanish representation in the tournament, since Andrés Ortiz Chirino and Daniel Rodríguez will do so as part of the cast of referees who will direct the matches this first stop in the highest continental competition for men’s clubs.
