Every two years countries across Europe battle it out to take glory and gain an automatic berth at the next Hockey World Cup or Olympics (depending on the cycle).
Dating back to 1970 (men) and 1984 (women) the EuroHockey Championships (to give it its full title) is organised by the European Hockey Federation (EHF).
