For the first time ever in Maltese history, local handball champions, Swieqi Yobetit Phoenix, are going to compete in the European Handball Federation Cup in September.
The competition is a huge one! It’s basically the handball equivalent to football’s Europa League.
The luck of the draw has set Malta’s champions against the Croatian team RK Dubrava from Zagreb for the first round of the competition.
The first round of matches will be on the 7th and 8th of September. Whoever wins will then play against Portugal’s Benfica.
A huge good luck to the Maltese team, we are all behind you.
