MEN´S WFCQ 2018 - EUR4 - Team Presentations – 19.01.2018

Denmark, Norway, Spain, Austria and Great Britain are all in the Group EUR4, which will compete in Nitra (Slovakia) on the 31.01 - 4.02.2018.

In Europe, there will be 22 teams competing in four qualification groups with three event locations - Tallinn (Estonia), Nitra (Slovakia) and Valmiera (Latvia).

Each team will play once against each of the other teams in their group. Based on the results from these group matches, a total of 10 teams will qualify according to the following:
- The two best teams from each qualification group will qualify; and
- The the two best 3rd placed teams will qualify.

The calculation of the best 3rd teams will follow this order: 1. Average number of points 2. Average goal difference 3. Average scored goals 4. Lottery drawing*
*Since the number of teams between the qualification groups differs, the group sizes will be equalised by removing the results from the matches against the lowest placed teams in the larger-sized group before comparing the average results.

More information about the WFCQ2018 is available here.
