Four Danish clubs in the Women's EHF Cup Quarter-final draw

Following the completion of the Women’s EHF Cup Group Phase the remaining eight teams will learn their fate in the next two rounds already on Tuesday 12 February. The draw at the EHF Office in Vienna at 11:00 hrs will determine not only the quarter-final, but also the semi-final pairings.

The first quarter-final leg in both Women's EHF Cup and Women's Challenge Cup is scheduled for 2/3 March, while the second leg will follow one week later. The semi-finals will be played in the first half of April.

The draw event will be streamed live on ehfTV.com youtube and the new EHF European Cup Facebook page.

​There will be two pots in this quarter-final draw as the four group winners - Team Esbjerg, Viborg HK, HC Podravka Vegeta and Siófok KC Hungary from the group phase are lined up in Pot 1, while the second ranked teams Herning-Ikast Handbold, Nykøbing Falster Håndbold - NFH, Storhamar Handball Elite and Kuban occupy the four positions in Pot 2.

The Pot 1 teams will be drawn first and will have the home court advantage in the second leg.

The country protection rule will not be applied in the draw, which means the four Danish teams can face their domestic rivals in the quarter-finals.

However, teams from the same group cannot meet in the next stage.
