SEHA Gazprom League with more teams and less matches in season 2018/2019

SEHA Gazprom League will finish the the seventh season today in Skoplje, where RK PPD Zagreb and RK Vardar will meet at the Final.

During the Press conference attended by one of the Gazprom’s directors Alexander Meshkov and EHF president Michael Wiederer, it was announced that League will have some changes for the next season in number of teams, but also matches per team.

Teams should have 14 instead of 20 matches per season which will help them to avoid tiredness in the crucial part of the season, but also attract some new TOP teams from the region

  • Now, it looks understandable that we have two groups with six teams. It is hard to find teams in this region on the level of Meshkov Brest, PPD Zagreb or RK Vardar, but we will give our best to reinforce league. We already talked with Veszprem and Szeged, also there is interest to speak with Kielce and Wisla Plock. We have offer of teams from Israel, Romania and Austria, but in the moment, that don’t bring quality. We are one of the three strongest league in the world of handball – said SEHA president Mihajlo Mihajlovski.
