|FIH World Ranking: 21|
Scotland has qualified again for the first time since Leipzig 2005. They have had a number of 3rd placed finishes in the Championship II, but their luck turned in 2017 when they hosted, won and earned their Championship status for this event. Coach Derek Forsyth and his team want to prove that they can manage European top-hockey. They are currently ranked 23rd in the FIH World Rankings.
