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.”
