In a new deal signed by the European Handball Federation and EHF Marketing GmbH, organizer of the VELUX EHF FINAL4, with the City of Cologne, LANXESS arena and federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia it has been confirmed that the event will return for a further four events, starting in the 2020/21 season.

This season the event will also celebrate a major milestone with the tenth edition to be played on 1/2 June 2019.

From the start of the 2020/21 season, the EHF and EHF Marketing will begin a new partnership with Infront and DAZN, which is set to transform the sport.

Michael Wiederer, EHF President, said: “Cologne is a special place for everybody in European club handball.
“Every top player dreams of playing in Cologne, the event is a must-visit for every handball fan and Cologne has become a meeting place for a ‘who’s who of international handball’ year after year.
“This sports city offers the perfect conditions for the organisation of the FINAL4: a central location in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, where handball is hugely popular, and a venue – the LANXESS arena – which ranks as one of, it not the, best handball arenas in Europe.
“The renewal of the contract with the City of Cologne, LANXESS arena and also the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia was a natural choice and we look forward to celebrating not only 10 years of the EHF FINAL4 in 2019 but also the 15-year anniversary in 2024.”
