Enjoy the best of Cologne with widespread digital coverage
The cream of the crop in European men’s club handball heads to Cologne this weekend for the EHF FINAL4 Men 2021 – and fans around the world can follow all the action on and off the court.
The final tournament of the EHF Champions League Men 2020/21 brings together the four best teams of the season, as French champions Paris Saint-Germain Handball take on debutants Aalborg Håndbold from Denmark in the first semi-final on Saturday at 15:15 CEST, followed by record champions Barça facing 2018 finalists HBC Nantes in the second semi-final at 18:00 CEST.
The 3/4 placement match (15:15 CEST) and the final (18:00 CEST) are scheduled for Sunday.
Even though a limited number of spectators can visit the LANXESS arena, all handball fans across the globe will feel like they are sitting in the first row thanks to the extensive online and TV coverage of the competition’s marquee event.
Fans need not miss a minute of the two-day action, no matter where they are.
