EMF Rankings Changed

The EMF Rankings Committee has met and decided to slightly amend the way the EMF rankings are calculated.

The change in formula has led to some slight changes to the previously published standings.

Six times champs Romania are still the team to beat. Almost 200 ranking points clear of nearest challengers Czech Republic.

The big change has seen Moldova, who performed superbly in the early days of the championships and reached the 2012 final, move up to seventh. Elsewhere Croatia moved above Germany, who only made their debut in 2012, into fourth spot.
