Following the conclusion of the Group Phase last weekend only seven teams can still dream of becoming the new Men's EHF Cup winners. While the EHF Cup Finals hosts HBC Nantes qualified directly for the final tournament courtesy of their Group B win, six other teams will have to enter the last knockout round before the EHF Cup Finals.

Already on Tuesday 29 March at 14:00 hrs the six sides will be divided in three quarter-final pairings by the draw hosted by the EHF Office in Vienna, which will be streamed live on Periscope via the @EHF Twitter account.

Draw procedure

The Pot 2 teams (the three best second ranked teams) - Fraikin BM Granollers (ESP), Frisch Auf Göppingen (GER) and St. Raphael Var Handball (FRA) will be drawn against the Pot 1 teams (winners of Group A, C, D) - SC Magdeburg (GER), Bjerringbro-Silkeborg (DEN) and Chambery Savoie Handball (FRA). The Pot 1 teams will host the second leg matches.

There will be no country protection for the German and French teams, while the teams from the same group of this season's group phase cannot meet each other in the quarter-final.

The first quarter-final leg is scheduled for 23-24 April, the second leg will be played one week later. The three winning teams qualify for the 2016 EHF Cup Finals in Nantes (14-15 May).
