All the teams who have registered for the biggest club competition in handball.
Last Friday was the deadline for clubs across Europe to register to participate in the VELUX EHF Champions League 2011/2012.
Only two sides, H.C. Conversano of Italy and HC Mojkovac of Montenegro, did not register.
The current list can be seen HERE (.pdf)
A number of clubs who have registered have remaining issues relating to their playing venue not being of EHF required standard. The EHF reserves the right to not accept their registration on this basis.
The EHF are currently investigating these clubs and are involved in a dialogue which may include solutions such as alternative playing venues or renovation plans.
The EHF Executive Committee meeting in Malta this week will be used for further evaluation of these clubs surrounding these organisational aspects as well as playing issues.
