All nations qualified by World rankings as the 2020 European Regional Championship were canceled due to the COVID pandemic.

For those unfamiliar Powerchair Hockey is a team sport for people with a physical disability. Two teams of five players battle against each other and use their own strategies to win. There are two kinds of players. Players who have enough strength to hold a stick in their hand, play with a floorball stick. Others play with a stick that is attached to the wheelchair, a T-stick. Each team needs to have at least two T-stick players: one goaltender in front of the goal and one player on the field. The ball is the same ball that is used in floorball.
