EHF Men's Champions Trophy Tourney to be Webstreamed this Weekend

The EHF Men's Champions Trophy Tourney matches will be available for viewing world-wide on the internet this weekend. The Champions Trophy is a one weekend 4 team tourney featuring the 3 winners of last year's EHF club tournaments and one wild card team. The participants are

2007/08 Champions League winner: ESP BM Ciudad Real
2007/08 EHF Cup winner: GER HSG Nordhorn
2007/08 Cup Winners’ Cup winner: HUN MKB Veszprém
Wild card and CL runner-up: GER THW Kiel

Commentary: This is kind of a strange event from an American perspective. It would be sort of like if college basketball had an early season tournament with the NCAA Champion, the NIT Champion, the Div II Champion and a wild card team. The tournament doesn't really mean much, but then again who cares. Anytime you get to see to two best club teams in the world, Kiel and Ciudad Real you don't need to complain.
