British Eurosport 2 to show 2012/13 EHF Champions League
British handball fans – both those who discovered the game through the Olympics and those who have been around for a bit longer – will (hopefully) be pleased to know that British Eurosport 2 will be showing this year’s EHF Champions League.
This is the top-tier competition for clubs across Europe that begins with group stages in September and culminates with the Final 4 weekend in May. Last year, THW Kiel won the competition to complete a remarkable treble of Bundesliga, German Cup and EHF Champions League.
Matches will be shown from September onwards. British Eurosport 2 is available on Sky channel 411 and Virgin channel 525 and you can check the listings here.
Great – thanks for that! Like you I have struggled to find any good English language websites about handball.
Thank you for your comment. I’m not sure this is a ‘good’ site but it is in English and it’s definitely about handball!
This is a fantastic competition which regularly features some of the most talented handballers in the world. I have been to the last two EHF Champions League Final Four weekends and seen some incredible games and great entertainment . If you thought the Copper Box rocked, try the electric atmosphere of Cologne’s Lanxess Arena. The crowd are clapping and cheering for the entire game and there are always spectacular pre-game shows. Tickets are available from €60 for the Final Four Weekend on 1st and 2nd June at http://www.ehffinal4.com/en/tickets.php
I watched most of the Final 4 online this year. As you say, the atmosphere seems incredible.
Plus this year I understand you got to hear Europe play some songs other than Final Countdown.
