|2012 EuroHockey Indoor Junior Championships commences|
|Written by ehfnews|
In less than 48hours the Swiss Under 21 team starts their defence of the EuroHockey Indoor Junior Championships in Vienna, 18-20 January 2013.
A tough start for the Swiss boys against Russia at 10.30 on Friday morning will see the start of their campaign to defend the title that they claimed for only the second time in the history of the Competition. So will it be a 3rd time lucky for the Swiss?
Looking at the strength of the opposition, it is a difficult Tournament to predict with 5 of the 8 teams competiting having claimed this title at some stage over the 21 years of competition.
The Austrian boys will surely be also looking for that 3rd time piece of luck, having been runners up the past 2 occasions and will look to maximise home support over the 3 days of competition.

In addition to the EuroHockey Championships, the second division will also take place in Bratislava, Slovakia.
