EHF Cup Finals return to Berlin

The EHF has confirmed that the third edition of the EHF Cup Finals, the final round of the Men’s EHF Cup competition, is to be played in the German capital Berlin for the second year in succession.

Following a highly successful event in 2014, the German Bundesliga club Füchse Berlin will once again play host to the two-day event on 16/17 May 2015.

The contract was signed on the fringes of the final weekend of the Men’s IHF World Championship in Doha, Qatar by EHF Secretary General, Michael Wiederer, EHF Marketing Managing Director, Peter Vargo, and Managing Director of Füchse Berlin, Bob Hanning.

The EHF Cup Finals feature the four top teams in the Men’s EHF Cup, competing over two days for the title with semi-finals played on Saturday (16 May) and final matches on Sunday (17 May).

Tickets for the two-day event are now available to purchase from the Füchse Berlin website - www.fuechse-berlin.de.

Commenting on the awarding of the event, Michael Wiederer, EHF Secretary General, said: “Handball is not only about sporting performance, but also major events such as the EHF Cup Finals. We’re pleased to see this event return to Berlin and the opportunity that this offers us to once again showcase top class handball in the German capital.”

Peter Vargo, Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “We were extremely happy with the organisation of the EHF Cup Finals last season, and we are more than confident that Berlin will once again put together a highly attractive sporting and entertainment event in May.”

Bob Hanning, Managing Director of Füchse Berlin, is looking forward to the return of the EHF Cup Finals to Berlin: ”We are extremely proud that the EHF has placed its trust in us once again and are looking forward to offering the handball world another great event. We are of course hoping to fare better on court this year, though we first have to concentrate on the group phase.”

The Men’s EHF Cup Group Phase throws off on 11 February 2015 and features 16 top men’s sides, playing in four groups for a place in the quarter-finals and ultimately for a place in the EHF Cup Finals.
