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).
The event is open to entries from each of the 43 Member Associations of the EHF. Teams are ranked in accordance with their performance in the previous event, with any newcomers being initially ranked bottom.
Each division is made up of eight teams, with direct promotion and relegation for the top two and bottom two teams respectively.
Full details of all the Divisions are available on the EHF website
