Handball 2020 Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Chinese handball player Wang Quan shot the first goal of China in the European  games, as a goalie, he shot 35 meters from the goal. I really feel proud of him, handball in China is an unpopular sport, but it is one of my favorite.

You're all watching the exciting European championship, but meanwhile in south america...  82-7

I watched some goals and I'm pretty sure the bolivian players don't have anyone above 170cm in the team.    And since this is a round robin they still have to play Brazil...    

Statement from EHF about the rest of the 2019/20-season:

EHF Executive Committee decisions on some of their competitions:

 

- VELUX EHF Champions League

The possibility was checked to have the remaining knock-out rounds played in autumn 2020. However, in the light of the dense calendar in men’s handball and the EHF’s new media and marketing agreement from next season onwards with potentially different media and marketing partners, this was not deemed feasible. 

Therefore, the remaining matches in the Last 16 and quarter-finals are cancelled. As already announced, the VELUX EHF FINAL4 2020 will take place on 28 and 29 December in Cologne.

Based on the final group phase ranking, qualified for the VELUX EHF FINAL4 are the best two teams of groups A and B: Barça, Paris Saint-Germain HB, THW Kiel, Telekom Veszprém HC.

 

- DELO WOMEN’S EHF Champions League

The quarter-finals' playing dates in June are cancelled. The DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 is scheduled to take place on 5 and 6 September in Budapest.

Currently EHF and EHF Marketing are checking the possibilities of playing the quarter-finals together with the EHF FINAL4 (Thursday and Saturday/Sunday on 3, 5 and 6 September). Should it not be possible to stage the EHF FINAL4 in September, an alternative date, together with the Hungarian Handball Federation as organisers, will be sought for the month of October. In this case, quarter-finals are not feasible anymore due to the already ongoing season and new media and marketing contracts.

If the quarter-finals cannot be played, qualified for the DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 are the best two teams of the two main round groups: Metz Handball, Team Esbjerg, Györi Audi ETO KC, Brest Bretagne Handball.

 

- MEN’S EHF Cup

The remaining group phase matches as well as the quarter-finals are cancelled.

In agreement with the organisers, Füchse Berlin, the MEN’S EHF Cup Finals scheduled for 29 and 30 August are cancelled. The tournament will not be carried out.

The remaining matches in the Women’s EHF Cup as well as in the Men’s and Women’s Challenge Cup are cancelled.
