Berlin to stage 2014 EHF Cup Finals

The 2014 European Handball Federation (EHF) Cup Finals will take place in the German capital of Berlin, the governing body has confirmed.

The two-day event will take place on May 17-18 and be hosted by Füchse Berlin, which is competing in the EHF Cup. The event will take place at the 9,000-capacity Max‐Schmeling‐Hall.

Berlin edged out six other bids from Brest and Montpellier in France as well as London, Athens, Stuttgart and Luxembourg.

EHF president Jean Brihault said: “Handball’s profile in Berlin has grown significantly in recent years, and after the EHF Cup Finals’ highly successful premiere in Nantes last season, I am confident that the German capital is the right choice for the second edition of this top‐class club event.”
