Raluy and Sabroso to officiate final at VELUX EHF FINAL4
Less than three weeks before the biggest event in European club handball, the EHF has now confirmed the officials for all four VELUX EHF FINAL4 matches on the 26/27 May 2018 in the LANXESS arena in Cologne. The final game of the VELUX EHF Champions League and the whole 2017/18 European club season will be refereed by Oscar Raluy Lopez and Angel Sabroso Ramirez.
The Spanish officials return to the FINAL4 after two years as they were in charge of the legendary final in the 2016 edition which saw Kielce winning the title after a penalty shoot-out.
Martin Gjeding and Mads Hansen from Denmark will referee the first semi-final clash between HBC Nantes and Paris Saint-Germain Handball, while the Icelandic couple Jonas Eliasson and Anton Pallson will lead the second semi-final featuring HC Vardar and Montpellier HB.
The 3/4 Placement Match will be refereed by Slovenians Bojan Lah and David Sok.
