Finals’ home and away draw to be streamed live
Before all eyes move to Budapest for the TIPPMIX EHF FINAL4 draw on Tuesday (1pm), four other teams, who reached the finals in the other two European club competitions will learn whether they will host the first or the second leg of the final on 6/7 May respectively one week later.
The brief Women's EHF Cup Final and Women's Challenge Cup Final draw event will be streamed live on ehfTV youtube channel and EHF’s Facebook page.
In the premiere edition of the reformed Women’s EHF Cup Final after its merge with the Cup Winners’ Cup last summer Rostov-Don from Russia will take on SG BBM Bietigheim.
While the German side reached the final in their maiden European season, the Russian powerhouse made it all the way to the last two games of the season following a disappointing early exit in the Women’s EHF Champions League last autumn. Two years after they lost the old Women’s EHF Cup Final against Team Tvis Holstebro, Rostov have another shot at their first continental silverware.
Meanwhile, in the Women’s Challenge Cup Sweden’s H 65 Höörs HK can emulate their 2014 triumph in the same competition, when they beat Issy Paris in the final just on the away goals rule. HC Lokomotiva Zagreb returned to the European final nearly after two decades after their two vain attempts in the Women’s Cup Winners’ Cup in 1995/96 and 1997/98.
