Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2020?
Baltic Handball League
We have less than a week and the new Baltic Handball League season of 2019/20 will kick off. As most of the BHL teams are already in action in different competitions, it's time to start with last season's innovation, the BHL Newsletter and see how the twelve clubs are doing.
The domestic seasons in the six countries, represented in the Baltic Handball League has come to an end. Last week brought yet another league title for Cocks Riihimäki and Serviti Põlva, while SKA Minsk and ZTR Zaporozhye finished second in the league and the latter also lost the Ukrainian Cup final.
Week by week competitions are coming to an end in six countries of the Baltic Handball League. Last week was a great one for two of this season's BHL Final Four participants – Dragunas Klaipeda successfully defended their Lithuanian league title, while SKA Minsk surprised HC Meshkov Brest in the Belarussian Cup final!
The first club from Baltic Handball League to win a domestic title in 2018/19 season is ZRHK Tenax Dobele! They defended their Latvian title in style, beating fellow BHL-team Celtnieks Riga with three straight victories.
It's this time of the year, where every game – and even every goal – counts, as play-offs are being played in three Baltic countries and Finland. Last week, there was plenty of drama in Latvian final and a slightly surprising outcome in Estonian semi-final.
While Baltic Handball League's 2018/19 season finished a week ago, the domestic leagues in all six countries involved in BHL are continuing and soon reaching their culmination. Especially in the three Baltic States, the play-off matches last week reached finals in Latvia and semi-final stage in Estonia and Lithuania.
