NEWS REPORT: The defending champions CSM Bucuresti will be drawn from the second pot on Friday.
Pots for the qualification and group matches announced
Following the confirmation of the teams for the next season of the Women’s EHF Champions League the European Handball Federation has released the seeding both for the qualification and the group matches draw.
The matches from each tournament will be played in one venue with two semi-finals, where teams from Pot 4 will meet teams from Pot 1 and teams from Pot 3 will face teams from Pot 2, followed by finals.
The semi-final pairings will be drawn on Wednesday 29 June at 13:00 hrs at the EHF Office in Vienna and the event will be streamed on Facebook Live.
The right to organise tournaments will be awarded according to the seeding, which means that first right goes to the teams in Pot 1.
13 directly seeded teams plus three qualification groups’ winners will be divided in four pots of four teams. Teams will not be able to face opponents from the same country in the group.
CSM Bucuresti, the defending champions, are seeded in the second pot, while winners of five previous seasons Buducnost (2012 and 2015), Györ (2013 and 2014) and Larvik (2011) are in the top pot together with Vardar.
