Forced to go and play in Nancy at the beginning of September (the Moselle Open tennis tournament takes place at the Arènes at the same time), Metz Handball had no room available to welcome the ogre Györ two weeks later in the Champions League.
Helpless in the face of the situation, President Thierry Weizman sounded the alarm. The Messin leader finally received good news from the EHF (the European Handball Federation): “We managed to reverse the two matches with Györ. The EHF lobbied and it was accepted. That’s very good news. We will play on Saturday 24 or Sunday 25 September in Hungary, ”explains the president, relieved. The reception of the Hungarians will be held at the Arena at the end of January. ” I thank Gyor its flexibility in this arrangement. »
“All the problems are not solved but going to play in Strasbourg, Luxembourg or Amnéville would have cost 80,000 euros”. Metz Handball, bronze medalist of the last edition of the Champions League, will be able to launch its European campaign a little more serenely.
