Last two weeks to choose your All-star team

There is not too much time left for all handball fans to show support for their VELUX EHF Champions League favourites and cast their online ballots for the 2016/17 All-star team presented by Salming.

The fifth edition of the vote, which started before the second quarter-final leg, will run only for two more weeks and will be closed on Tuesday 30 May at midnight.

The list of 50 nominees consists of exclusively stellar names, as there are five nominees in the selection for each position - the starting seven plus the best defender, the best coach and the best young player (born in 1994 or younger).

Players and coaches from 20 clubs and from 17 nations in the current season have been selected. While six members of the 2015/16 All-star team can make it back to the elite company, there are no fewer than 25 new names (50 %) in the nomination list.

For the first time also the media representatives and a panel of experts will contribute to the final selection. The combined choice of all three branches will be announced on the eve of the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in Cologne on Friday 2 June.

Fans who register before submitting their votes can win of 16 attractive prizes from the official partner Salming including the original award “The Spirit of Handball” created by the Swedish-American graffiti artist Shai Dahan. The artpiece will be handed over to the new All-star team members.
