NEWS REPORT: The Round 9 match has been rescheduled to Round 14 period in order to avoid a date collision with Flensburg's bundesliga match
Playing dates collision solved, Flensburg play Kadetten in March
After a very positive approach and a joint effort of all parties involved a solution could finally be worked out to avoid a playing dates collision of SG Flensburg Handewitt in the VELUX EHF Champions League and the German DKB bundesliga.
The Round 2 match of SG Flensburg-Handewitt at Bjerringbro-Silkeborg will take place as planned, while the bundesliga game of Flensburg vs Leipzig is removed from the schedule of Sunday 2 October to a new date in the week from 30 November to 4 December 2016, where Flensburg was supposed to play against Kadetten in the Champions League.
The change includes the rescheduling of other matches in the DKB Handball Bundesliga as well and required a good amount of flexibility of the concerned clubs and especially of the German League itself. At the same time, the EHF and the VELUX EHF Champions League is also asked to support the issue with some flexibility in order to improve the overall situation.
Therefore and in order to enable this solution, the match of Round 9 of the VELUX EHF Champions League (SG Flensburg/Handewitt vs. Kadetten Schaffhausen) needs to be rescheduled from Round 9 to the week of Round 14 in March 2017 and will be played during that particular week on Wednesday, 8 March 2017 in Flensburg.
