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.

Three tickets from the qualification

Qualification will be played on 10 and 11 September in three tournaments, winners of which will be awarded with places in the group matches.

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.

The group matches draw will follow on Friday 1 July at 13:00 hrs local time in Glostrup, Denmark at the headquarters of SELECT SPORT, the EHF’s new ball partner. The draw will be streamed live on ehfTV.com.

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.
