Dear Teams,

thank you for the registration for the Euro Qualifier. We tried to keep it as open as possible and invite not only the original PACHC group but the teams of Slovakia, Romania and Ukraine as well.

Successfully 20 teams could register which means we have the chance for the biggest international polo event of the season in Eastern Europe.

On one hand still there are teams on the waiting list and on the other hand 6 registered teams did not paid the fee (after the second reminder!).

There is only twenty days for the beginning so for the next step we need to know the exact number of participants. On this reason we had to make an end for the many if, and so.

This is the final warning.
We accept all pending registrations but all teams must pay their registration fee till 23.04.2012 24:00.
Team without full payment (whether it be Hungarian!) will be deleted from the participant list.

Please take this warning serious, we cannot make any exceptions.

On Wednesday 25.04. we will put out the final list of teams to the website.
On Friday 27.04. we will do the lot for the first swiss round of the first day, it will be streamed live: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bike-polo-szeged at 19:00.

Thank you
organizers of the qualifier

First Day:

we have the winners:


Congrats to Bisons, Apollo 3 and MMA.
And thank you Szeged guys for all the support online. With live scores and video stream it was possible to follow the tournament almost like being there :)
The only thing that was missing was the current score of current match somewhere.

One but fun...

Hey guys,

Mateen from Banana Thieves here.

Unfortunately one of our players won´t be able to make Paris/Rouen due to not getting free from work.

We have talked about it and decided that we do not want to go to Paris/Rouen with one player missing and will rather safe the money and attend another tourney in europe this summer.

Really sorry about this and I hope it is not too late for another team to step in. All the best to the other teams that qualified for the Euros and wild card tournament, hope you do very well and teach rest of europe a lesson!

Would have been great to see the teams from Szeged again. Maybe at next years Szeged campus open? ;)

Or at the tourney you will hopefully organise in Wien,your court looks fancy :).

Would have been nice but due to several complaints from a neighbour, we are now only allowed to play on the court from Saturday 1-5pm ... -.-

Does anyone have interest in the wild card slot?

So guys, anyone want the wildcard slot?

Also, can you please spread the word and ask your mates? Thanks

Hi guys,

I've just seen the post from Maciek (Appolo3) wich told us his team was not able to come to Paris.

We don't received at the moment any registration for any teams conerning the Euros and the wildcard from you guys.

So I guess Bisons and MMA are still in, cause MMA is in Paris and Bisons are playing with Morgain from Lyon, but we need you guys to pay the fee.

One spot is available for the teams qualified for the wildcard to go directly in the Euros :

- Banana Thieves /Aut/
- Tora Tora Tora /Pol/
- Bloody Brown Bears /Rom/

It looks like Banana Thieves are not able to come as well, so what about Tora Tora Tora and Bloody Brown Bears ?

No on those teams have confirmed that they'll come for the wild card. We need to manage the bracket for the wild card and the Euros so we need confirmation asap.



Hmm. 2 spot from 6 is used up only. I wonder how many spots will be given to the PACHC group in 2013 after this....
