A NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR THE TITLE

0078 final4 varazdinToday marks the beginning of the second Croatian beach handball Final 4. The Kapucinski square will host, just like last year, four of the best teams, both male and female. Today we will have the semifinal matches where we will find out tomorrow's finalists. Other than the prestigious title, teams are fighting for a place on the Champios cup, a competition this will be held in Sicily after four years at Gran Canaria.
Dubrava will play in Varaždin with both male and female team, which are both the no.2 seed. Girls will play in 20:40h against Detono Zagreb, ex European champions who stopped us last year in the same game.In the second semifinal the reigning  champions Kontesa Nera will face Chemo profili Zagreb.
The men's team is still waiting for their first championship which was so close in 2017 when they lost against Detono in the shootout. In the first semifinal Detono will play White Boys - the only team from Dalmatia. The last game on Saturday is reserved for our boys which will look to book a place in the final against Sesvete, just like last year. The game starts at 21:30.
We asked Ivan Dumenčić,  the girls coach and a player, to say a few words: ”We are looking forward to an excellent tournament and we won't try to hide our aspirations. We are not the favourites - in both competitions those are the reigning champions, and we have big obstacles in front of us. Boys showed last year that they deserve to be the champions and we hope luck turns to us this year. Girls are already two time champions and it's a big wish of ours to take the trophy home again so we attempt to make a better result in the Champios Cup than last time which was 3rd place.”
 Other than the Final 4 on Friday and Saturday we will have a four nation tournament as a part of the World Cup preparation. It will be held in Russia. On it Croatia will be the defending champion, a title acquired two years ago in Hungary. On the tournament, other than our team, we will see Oman, Hungary and Serbia.
 All in all a great invitation to see some great beach handball.
