This is the 8th time that Budapest will host the final 4 of the women’s handball Champions League. It’s only been a few months since the European Men’s Championships, and much to the delight of the fans, the best women’s club teams and players in Europe can compete in Budapest’s new handball arena.
There was plenty of drama in this year’s DELO EHF Champions League matches so far. Although the Danish Esbjerg took the lead in Group A with a confident performance, the other teams fought hard for the quarter-final places to reach the top two places in the group. Sadly FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria lost their away play-off game against Krim Mercator Ljubljana and a subsequent home win was not enough, so their Slovenian counterpart went through on aggregate.
The five-time champions vs the debutants: Györi Audi ETO KC against Team Esbjerg will be the first match of the EHF FINAL4 Women 2022 on 4/5 June, followed by the second semi-final between Metz Handball and Vipers Kristiansand.
The EHF FINAL4 Women 2022 draw in Budapest pitted Győr against Esbjerg and Metz against Vipers for the semi-finals on Saturday 4 June.
One question, however, remained open: in which order will these two matches be played?
The answer has followed less than 24 hours later, as Győr and Esbjerg are set to go first at 15:15 CEST, before Metz and Vipers take the court in the MVM Dome for the latter match at 18:00 CEST.
The throw-off times for the 3/4 placement match and the final on Sunday 5 June are identical.
