Hosts Landskrona are late entrants to FanCode ECS Sweden Malmo replacing Goteborg CC who had to withdraw from the tournament. Founded in 1991, Landskrona CC can call on 30 years of passion and tradition.

Landskrona plays in the Allsvenska Division in Swedish Cricket League and will be making their ECS debut. LAN will be looking to grab this sudden opportunity with both hands to showcase their talent to the world.
