Four countries with three teams each in the round 3 pots

Following last weekend's matches all but one team for the Men's EHF Cup Qualification Round 3 have been confirmed.

While 16 teams including the defending winners Frisch Auf Göppingen and two teams from the VELUX EHF Champions League Qualification (Alpla HC Hard and Tatran Presov) have been directly seeded to Pot 1, the remaining teams had to fight their way through the Qualification Round 2 and will be seeded in Pot 2.

The only still open pairing of the Qualification Round 2 is FH Hafnarfjordur (ISL) vs St. Petersburg HC (RUS) after the Russian team filed a protest and the Court of Handball is expected to decide on this case in due time.

The draw will take place on Tuesday 17 October at 11:00 hrs local time at the EHF Office in Vienna.

There will be no country protection in the draw which means the teams from the same country can face each other in the Qualification round 3. This rule applies to six countries - Denmark, Spain, France, Hungary, Poland, Sweden.

In total, no fewer than four countries have three teams in the last qualification round before the group phase - Denmark, Spain, Germany and Hungary.

All fans will be able to follow the streaming of the draw on EHF Facebook Live and on

In addition the draw will be covered with a live ticker and reports on as well as live tweets on @EHF.
