European Cup Final Draw

The EHF Cup and Cup Winners' Cup Final Draw will take place on Tuesday 5 May. The CL and the Challenge Cup Final have been determined by the Regulations.


European Cup Final Draw

The draw for the European Cup and EHF Champions League Final will take place on 5 May 2009 at 11:00hrs in the EHF Headquarters, Vienna. However, a draw will not be needed to determine the home and away rights for the 2008/09 Men’s EHF Champions League Final and the Challenge Cup Final.

EHF CL

The 2008/09 Men’s Champions League Regulation includes a particular point dealing with the matter (chapter II, point 2.9):

2.9 Home right in the final
A team that had the home right in the second game of its last appearance in a Champions League final will automatically have the home right at the first leg at its next appearance in a Champions League final by considering the order of the years.

For the Champions League finals of the 2008/09 season, the seasons 2007/08 (BM Ciudad Real vs THW Kiel), 2006/07 (SG Flensburg vs THW Kiel) and 2005/06 (Portland San Antonio vs Ciudad Real) are taken into consideration in this respect in this particular order.

The home right shall be drawn by lot in all cases, in which the home right is not defined after having put into practice this regulation point.

CL Final:

THW Kiel vs BM Ciudad Real - no draw
Kiel has the home right at the first leg (May 23/24) and Ciudad Real has the home right at the second leg (May 30/31) 

Challenge Cup

The 2008/09 European Cup Regulation (point 3.2.1.2) deals with the matter in a similar way.

Challenge Cup Final:

UCM Sport Resita and CSU Suceava - no draw
Resita has the home right at the first leg (May 23/24) and Suceava has the home right at the second leg (May 30/31)

EHF Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup

The home and away rights in the Final of the EHF Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup will be drawn by lots due to the fact that no team had the home right at the second leg during the last 3 seasons.
