The 2019 ranking 

To figure out the ranking for the first qualification tournament we have used the rankings from the 2018 European Championship (EFC) in Graz 🇦🇹. There has never been placement games in the EFC, so in case of equal placements we have also used the placements from 2017 and 2016 to separate the teams.

In case of tie breaks between nations we have separated them with the following tie breakers:

  1. Match wins (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)

  2. Head to head (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)

  3. Point difference (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)
