Pots for the qualification and group matches draw released

Following the confirmation of the teams for the next season of the Women’s EHF Champions League the European Handball Federation has released the seeding both for the qualification and the group matches draw.

While the former draw will take place at the EHF Office in Vienna on Thursday 29 June (11:00 hrs), the latter will be hosted by the Ljubljana castle on Friday evening. Both events will be streamed live on www.ehfTV.com and also on the competition’s Facebook page and the ehfTV youtube channel.

Two tickets from the qualification

Qualification will be played on 9 and 10 September in two tournaments, winners of which will be awarded with places in the group matches.
The matches from each tournament will be played in one venue with two semi-finals, where teams from Pot 4 will meet teams from Pot 1 and teams from Pot 3 will face teams from Pot 2, followed by finals.

The right to organise the qualification tournaments will also be drawn.

Defending champions in Pot 1

The group matches draw will follow on Friday 30 June with the event starting at 19:00 and the draw itself at 21:00 hrs local time.

14 directly seeded teams plus two qualification groups’ winners will be divided in four pots of four teams. Teams will not be able to face opponents from the same country in the group.

Györi Audi ETO KC, the defending champions, are seeded in the second pot together with the other three participants of the TIPPMIX EHF FINAL4, Buducnost, HC Vardar and CSM Bucuresti.
