Anastacia headlines at first EHF FINAL4 opening party in Budapest
At what is the sixth edition in Budapest, the pinnacle event in European women’s club handball is reaching new heights, as the DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 launched on Friday evening with the first ever official opening party.
Handball fans at the party just outside the competition venue for the upcoming semi-finals and medal matches, Papp Laszlo Sportarena, were treated to a live performance from American singer-songwriter Anastacia as the highlight of the night.
Prior to Anastacia’s performance, the four semi-finalists arrived for a meet and greet with fans. While the opening party was a new experience for all DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 participants – even seasoned veterans at the event, defending champions Györi Audi ETO KC – debutants Vipers Kristiansand and Metz Handball enjoyed a spectacular welcome to their maiden venture.
