Hungarian League, called “NB I.” has reached its finish, and these week  the battles for the medals are starting.

Győri Audi ETO KC, FTC Rail Cargo Hungaria, ÉRD and Dunaújváros Kohász KA has qualified to the best four.

In semifinals Győr defeated ÉRD twice, and FTC got also two victories against Dunaújváros, so in the final will again meet the two big rivals on Hungarian stage, FTC and Győr.

Győr is coming to the finals after a big disappointment as the two times CL-trophy winner didn’t managed to qualify to this years MVM Final Four in Budapest, being knocked out by the Macedonian power Vardar Skopje.

FTC has reached the semifinals of the CWC, but they had to leave the European Cup stage also earlier than planned, after beeing defeated by Danish FCM.

Both teams had a lot to process and both teams are hungry to win, to prove their skills and rebuild their own confidence.

Two victories means that a team is the winner of the League or bronze medals.
