Already before the VELUX EHF FINAL4 has thrown-off, the preparations for the 2011/12 VELUX EHF Champions League season are in full swing.
For every European Cup competition the EHF publish a seeding list, which gives an overview over place distribution and pots as well as an overview over the timeline milestones. For the first time, one of these lists is published before all teams are determined.
At this point in time, several national leagues are still undecided. Also there is the possibility of qualified teams refusing to register for the VELUX EHF Champions League for different reasons. Therefore please note that this list is subject to changes.
Since the federations of Spain and Germany currently have a very similar number of points, the nation which wins the 2010/11 VELUX EHF Champions League will earn enough points to take over position 1 in the 2011/12 seeding.
New qualification format
Following the decision of the Executive Committee of the European Handball Federation met on 08/09 April 2011, the format of the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League and EHF Women’s Champions League Qualification Tournaments and Wild Card Tournament were changed. From season 2011/12 on these events will be played in a final four format, with two semi-finals on one day and two finals on the next.
