Welcome to sports venue De Vijfkamp in Eindhoven for the U17 Korfball World Cup, the unofficial World Championship for national teams under 17. A special word of welcome to the participating teams, their technical staff and other companions.
The KNKV is proud being able to host again a tournament this size. Especially worth mentioning is the dedication of the Eindhoven clubs Attila, DSC, PSV/lifovragen.nl and Rust Roest, who carry out the organization and whose volunteers contribute to wonderful korfball days in an entourage that breathes the atmosphere of our beautiful sport.
To the players competing these days this is undoubtly the year’s international highlight. Showdowns with peers from different countries contribute not only to individual development but also to the further international spread of the sport korfball. Teams will learn from eachother and experience this sport during confrontations that constitute alluring comparingmoments, in a connecting and amusing ambiance. That’s precisely why it’s so important for this annual event to have and to keep a prominent place on the international korfball calender.
This Korfball World Cup is not only provides colour to korfball, but also emphasizes our sports values: connecting people, team spirit, social cohesion and competition, based on fair play.
I wish all participating teams lots of success and the fans lots of pleasure while watching and experiencing the matches of this tournament.
This event is organized by four different korfballclubs from Eindhoven, a partnership in which the joint importance of korfball promotion and development comes first. Fortunately, a lot of input came from the organization of earlier editions in Schijndel. Thanks a lot KVS'17 (former known as KV de Boemerang.)
