Győri Audi ETO KC is preparing for their eight European cup final, and their third CL-final. Last year Hungarians lost against Buducnost Podgorica on a slight difference only, Montenegrins has scored more goals at away match.

Győr is one of the clubs, which have one of the most stable financial background, secured by more sponsors, being able to transfer top-players on almost every position.

Players at their first CL-final: Ivett Szepesi, Dóra Hornyák, Dorina Korsós, Szederke Sirián, Viktória Rédei-Soós,

Players at their third CL-final: Anita Görbicz, Anikó Kovacsics, Heidi Löke (she won the trophy in 2011 with Larvik HK)

Katrine Lunde will play her fourth CL-final, she won the trophy twive, in 2009 and 2010 with Viborg HK.


Katrine Lunde is the best goalkeeper of the moment in female handball, and she knows quiet well her team-mates from the Norwegian national team, playing in Larvik. Orsolya Herr is the first goalkeeper of the Hungarian national team, can step in always with a high level performance. Junior goalkeeper, Zsófi Szemerey is also part of the squad.


Anita Görbicz is the icon of the club from Győr, she plays for this club since she has thirteen, and she is recognized as one of the best on her position. She is very well backuped by young Anikó Kovacsics, who are also preparing for her third CL-final, at only 22 years of age.

Serbian Andrea Lekic plays on every of the three backplayer positions, she can make plenty of unexpected things for the opponent, and have a good eye for the game , putting her teammates in scoring-situations.

Eduarda Amorim is the most important pillar of the defense, but she also has her deadly weapon, shooting from distance.

Rightback Viktória Rédei Soós is a player, which solves quiet efficiently the tasks she gets from the coaching staff, increasing this way the number of  variations in attack for her team.

Dóra Hornyák, is a young Hungarian backplayer at her first year in the club, she had some injury problems in the last weeks of the preparation.

Norwegian Heidi Löke is a player, who never gets tired or in bed shape, she is dangerous in every match and every situation, fact that will be exploited by Győr for sure.

Another lineplayer is the young, Hungarian Szederke Sirián, from the club’s youth basis.



Montenegrin Jovanka Radicevic and Hungarian Adrienne Orbán make a good couple on the right wing, where Radicevic represents the force and temperament, meanwhile Orbán can make her task very well when she gets the chance.


Left wing with Ivett Szepesi (her first year in ETO) and Dorina Korsós (junior of the club)is a stable position, where sometimes we could see Raphaelle Tervel or Anikó Kovacsics getting playing time as well.

Raphaelle Tervel is registered as a left winger in ETO”s squad, but she is a high level central defender and can play on backcourt also if that is needed.

Coaching staff:

Head-coach: Ambros Martín, Spanish coach, arrived from Itxako to Győr, he is preparing fro his second CL-final in the career. Second coach: Gábor Danyi.
