Vienna, 03 May 2010. Hotel Reservation Service (HRS), the international accommodation booking company, and EHF Marketing GmbH have agreed a three-year partnership agreement, beginning with the EHF FINAL4 in Cologne on 29 and 30 May 2010.

The Cologne-based company will offer special hotel prices for the fans visiting the EHF FINAL4 in Germany as well as to clubs and their supporters throughout the EHF Champions League season for the next three years.

The partnership with HRS will provide a number of advantages for clubs and their fans taking part in the EHF Men’s Champions League such as special accommodation rates for away games in the competition.

The Managing Director of HRS, Tobias Ragge, is proud to become a partner of the EHF Champions League: “Our company shares a passion for handball. This is not only a beautiful and dynamic game, but also a great platform for us to promote our brand in an exclusive environment.”

EHF Marketing’s Managing Director, Peter Vargo, welcomed the agreement: “Solving the accommodation of teams travelling to a huge number of away games during a competition season is a big challenge. The cooperation with HRS will undoubtedly not only save clubs and their fans money but also offer HRS the perfect platform to promote their services.”
