Cologne and EHF CL Final4 together until 2029

The European Handball Federation, EHF Marketing, the City of Cologne and LANXESS arena have agreed on an early prolongation of their agreement that sees the EHF FINAL4 Men being played in Cologne for another three years and until 2029.

The current contract for staging the final weekend of the EHF Champions League, the premium competition of European club handball, in Cologne runs until 2026.

The success story between the EHF FINAL4 Men, the LANXESS arena and the City of Cologne started in 2010 when the first event was held in front of a capacity crowd of 19,750 spectators.

The 2029 edition will thus mark the event’s 20th anniversary.

Michael Wiederer, EHF President, said: “Since 2010, the City of Cologne and LANXESS arena have been offering a perfect environment and the best conditions for the EHF FINAL4 Men. Together, we have continuously developed the event further and turned it into a must-visit happening for every handball fan and into the ultimate goal for every player. Furthermore, Cologne has become a meeting place for the ‘who’s who of international handball’. This early contract extension underlines the immense trust between all parties involved, and we are looking forward to organising several even more successful EHF FINAL4s together.”
