The European Handball Federation (EHF) is the umbrella organization for European handball. Founded on November 17th 1991, it is made of 50 member federations and two associated federations (England and Scotland), and is headquartered in Vienna, Austria. The EHF-organizes events such as the Men’s and Women’s European Handball Championships and the EHF Champions League. The EHF Champions League is the most important handball club competition for men’s teams in Europe and involves the leading teams from the top European nations. The competition is organised every year by EHF. The official name for the men’s competition is the VELUX EHF Champions League, since the VELUX Group sponsors the competition.
On the 3rd of June, this Saturday, it will be a “big day” for the handball team of Veszprém, Hungary. The Hungarian Telekom Veszprém club will face the Paris Saint-Germain Handball team from France in the VELUX EHF Champions League. These two teams have already met in Paris and in Veszprém. In both of these matches, the French team emerged victorious; both, games, however, were closely contested.
“This time we are not in the running for the final victory and we are not underdog at the same time”, said László Nagy the kicker of the Hungarian team.
For the Hungarian team, it is the fourth time they are in the final four of the tournament. A great victory in the Champions League would shine like a diamond in the crown of the Telekom Veszprém.
Go Veszprém! Go For It!
