Győri Audi ETO KC is the title holder from 2018/2019 season of DELO Women EHF Champions League. The Hungarian powerhouse is still one of the best teams in Europe and looking at their transfers we can for surely state that the fact to not making so many changes between the seasons give them advantage. The team is together for a long time, only few players has arrived after the last sudden ended season and almost every player is healthy and fit to start the season.

Two very remarkable goalkeepers have retired after the last season, Eva Kiss remained to work at the club with the young teams, meanwhile, Kari Aalvik Grimsbø moved back to Norway, and beside her civil job, she becomes the goalkeeper trainer of Byåsen. Bernadette Bódi left the club right before the preparation started, mostly due to family reasons, and will continue in the second Hungarian league at Budaörs. Jana Knedlikova transferred to Vipers (NOR). Right-back Katarina Bulatovic has also retired after EHF annulated the last seasons Final4. Anita Görbicz is the new assistant coach helping Gábor Danyi, but she remained also active as a player. Zdravko Zovko is not anymore part of the technical staff.

On the arrival side, two big names of the handball-world on the goalkeeper position has been added, as Glauser or Solberg don’t need presentation.

Rightwinger Viktoria Lukács left domestic rivals from FTC in order to join Győr.

Newcomers: Laura Glauser (Metz), Viktória Lukács (FTC), Silje Solberg (Siófok)

Left the club: Kari Aalvik Grimsbö (retired), Éva Kiss (retired), Bernadett Bódi (Budaörs), Katarina Bulatovic (retired), Jana Knedlikova (Vipers Kristiansand)
