The venue for the first edition of the Men’s EHF Cup Final Tournament has been announced in Belgrade on the fringes of the 10th Women’s EHF European Championship, being held in Serbia from 4 to 16 December 2012.

Commenting on the awarding of the event to Nantes, Jean Brihault, EHF President, said: “We considered a number of excellent applications to host the event, but the French city of Nantes presented us with a concept that we felt would really work, especially in the first year. Handball is hugely popular in the region and with the support of the club and the local region we are sure that the premiere edition of the new EHF Cup Final Tournament will be in safe hands.”

President of HBC Nantes, Gaël Pelletier, who was awarded with a new official ball of the Men´s EHF Cup by Brihault, said: “I would like to thank the EHF for the vote of confidence in our club. This nomination is above all a reward for the 120 enthusiastic volunteers of the club who are working daily to build the history of our club with a big `H`.

"It is also the recognition of the overwhelming interest which goes along with handball in Nantes and a great chance, for our partners and for the region, to host the top teams of our sport and a high number of passionates coming from all over Europe. It is the `icing on the cake` of our 60th anniversary.”
