National Team Week: Four SEHA national teams in action


National team week, which will mark the beginning of both EHF EURO 2022 Qualifiers and EHF Euro Cup 2022 is ahead of us with a lot of our SEHA – Gazprom League players being called up to their respective national teams.

The final part of the Qualifiers for Hungary and Slovakia, two countries that will in 2022 host Men's EHF European Championship, starts now. We will see eighth groups consisting out of four teams each with first, second and four of the best third-placed teams booking a direct ticket for EHF EURO Group Phase. When we add Spain (European champion from 2020), Croatia (European silver-medallist from 2020), Hungary (host) and Slovakia (host) to those 20 teams we get a final number of 24 teams that will in 2022 aim for the European throne. The upper-mentioned four teams that have already booked a place for themselves on 2022 EHF EURO will, while the rest are playing EHF EURO Qualifiers, play EHF Euro Cup – a tournament which will be played in the same system as qualification groups.
We will, therefore, see four SEHA national teams in action in the next few days – Croatia, Macedonia, Hungary and Ukraine with all of them featuring a solid amount of SEHA – Gazprom League players who will, apart from these five national teams, be present on courts all over Europe with Aleksandar Bakic and Stevan Vujovic playing for Montengro, Gasper Marguc for Slovenia, Gleb Kalarash for Russia etc. We have some really quality games ahead of us and we're bringing you a full schedule for our SEHA – Gazprom League national teams so make sure not to miss them:
