EHF Logo 100 European Handball Federation

As part of a big EHF club competitions’ reform, the former Challenge Cup has transformed and will be known as the EHF European Cup from the 2020/21 season.

The third-tier competition will remain to be played in a knock-out system all the way to the two-legged final. In the EHF European Cup Men 51 teams have been registered on the starting grid, including 2019 Challenge Cup winners CSM Bucuresti.

The opening playing round is scheduled for 17/18 and 24/25 October. The total number of participating teams allowed the first round, originally planned for September, to be skipped.

As the next step later this week the EHF will announce the pots for the opening (second) round draw.
