About EHL Hockey
With the aim of developing club hockey at an international level, Euro Hockey League (EHL) was introduced for the 2007/08 season, an exciting new format that replaced the men’s European Cup competition. EHL’s existing shareholders – the European Hockey Federation, Mediapro and Southfields, – believe that this unique international competition can be developed even further and taken to a whole new level, especially in the area of cross media innovations. Additional improvements are envisioned to further validate the league’s claim that the EHL is “The best way hockey has ever been presented”.
