The DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4, the MEN’S EHF Cup Finals, and the VELUX EHF FINAL4 should be organized in May and June 2020, but everything is uncertain these days in Europe and in the world. The WHO has announced today that we are facing a pandemic of Covid-19 and new decisions have been taken.

The EURO qualification matches will be played on in June 2020 instead of March.

The women Olympic Qualification tournaments will be played without spectators (these are scheduled in Hungary, Montenegro and Spain)

And EHF has also worked out new strategies in case of the above-mentioned Final4 competitions. In close cooperation with the local organizers has defined presumptive dates in case the handball showcases cannot be carried out as scheduled.

  • DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 – 8/9 May: alternative date is 5/6 September in Budapest
  • MEN’S EHF Cup Finals – 23/24 May: alternative date is 30/31 August in Berlin
  • VELUX EHF FINAL4 – 30/31 May: alternative date is 22/23 August in Cologne

All purchased tickets will remain valid and, due to the timely work on the part of the organization, the events in case of a necessary postponement will be organized in the usual quality.
