Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2019?
Baltic Handball League
It has been five months since Cocks Riihimäki was crowned the 2017/18 Baltic Handball League champions and we are ready to kick off a new season. For 2018/19 BHL introduces a new competition system, similar to EHF Champions League and some other new elements. Perhaps entering an unknown territory, the participating clubs and BHL management are hoping to lift the level of handball even higher.
Baltic Handball League season of 2017/18 is over. The champion is once again – for a third time in a row – Cocks Riihimäki. In a very exciting final, the Finns beat Serviti Põlva by 26-23. Bronze-medals belong to SKA Minsk, who needed two extra-times to defeat ZTR Zaporozhye 40-37.
What an exciting day it was in Põlva – two thrillers in the semi-finals of the Baltic Handball League's 2017/18 Final Four. Hosts Serviti Põlva beat ZTR Zaporozhye by the minimal margin 30-29 and it was as tight in the second semi, where title-holder Cocks Riihimäki took a 27-25 win over SKA Minsk.
Before the Final Four of the 2017/18 season kicks off tomorrow, we are happy to publish some facts and statistics about all four participants. Both for fans and media, so it perhaps helps all to know a little bit more about background before people around the world start follow the matches, which will all be streamed live at baltichandball.net.
The 2017/18 Baltic Handball League season is reaching the culmination this weekend, as the Final Four takes place in Põlva. Hosts Serviti will take on ZTR Zaporozhye in Saturday's semi-finals and title-defender Cocks Riihimäki will play SKA Minsk to determine the second finalist. The final and the third-place play-off are played on Sunday. All matches will be streamed live on baltichandball.net.
