It took place alongside the women's tournament at the Wagener Stadium in Amstelveen, Netherlands from 13 to 18 April 2022.[1] Due to the delayed 2021 edition of the Euro Hockey League, only 12 teams participated in this edition. The remaining eight teams played in the 2022 Euro Hockey League Ranking Cup.

Bloemendaal were the defending champions.[2] They defended their title by defeating Rot-Weiss Köln 4–0 in the final. Bloemendaal became the first club to successfully defend their Euro Hockey League title.[3] Surbiton won the bronze medal by defeating Club de Campo 2–1 and became the first English club in 11 years to win an EHL medal.[4]

Association team allocationEdit

A total of 12 teams from 9 of the 45 EHF member associations would participate in the 2022 Euro Hockey League. The association ranking based on the EHL country coefficients was used to determine the number of participating teams for each association:

  • Associations 1–3 each had two teams qualify.
  • Associations 4–9 each had one team qualify.

Association rankingEdit

For the 2022 Euro Hockey League, the associations are allocated places according to their 2020 EHL country coefficients, which takes into account their performance in European competitions from 2018–19 to 2020–21.[5]
