The Score to ignite the atmosphere at the VELUX EHF FINAL4

American band The Score will take the centre stage in the LANXESS arena in Cologne on 2 June ahead of the final match of the VELUX EHF FINAL4 and again just before the award ceremony.

In the lead-up to the final match, Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover will perform their hit ‘Legend’, which has more than 23 million views on YouTube. The American band will warm up the crowd also before the award ceremony with their energetic song ‘Born For This’.

"We always get so much love from our fans in Germany and throughout the UK. It's going to be so fun to see everyone up close and in person at the EHF FINAL4,” said the dynamic pop-rock duo.

The New York-born and Los Angeles-based duo started in 2015 but has already reached hundreds of millions in cumulative streams within three years’ time with their two EPs ‘Unstoppable’ and ‘Myths & Legends’ and a 2017 full length debut, ‘ATLAS’.

The duo’s music genre juggles between rock, pop, indie and electronic, making their music omnipresent in movies and television as well. Their songs have been placed in campaigns for the NFL play-offs including the Super Bowl, NBA, Jeep and Daytona 500.

Commenting on the announcement, David Szlezak, Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “The VELUX EHF FINAL4 is proving its status as the benchmark event of European indoor sport again. The weekend in Cologne on 1/2 June offers the full package of the most exciting handball action as well as the very best entertainment. This year, we are celebrating the 10th edition of the event which is something very special for us. Having the popular US band The Score contributing to our celebrations with their upbeat music will elevate the show to a new level.”

In addition to the performance of The Score on 2 June, the well-known faces of the entertainment team will make sure all the fans are getting an unforgettable experience.

Anett Sattler and Markus Floth will be the official presenters with Hannah Jackson covering the action behind-the-scenes mainly for social media. The Swedish duo consisting of DJ Peter Vikström and hall announcer Claes Mårtensson will make sure the atmosphere in the LANXESS arena is electrifying.
