The European Handball Federation was looking for new and innovative ways to assure media coverage for Champions League. As a result, the games will be broadcast online on www.ehfCL.com and on www.laola1.tv. As the Main Round of the Champions League is coming up, a number of matches will be available live for the handball fans, including the semifinal and the final.
The series of live coverage will begin with the match Montpellier HB (FRA) vs VfL Gummersbach (GER) on 9 February 2008 at 19:40 hrs. Just one day later on 10 February at 17:55 hrs, the game US Ivry HB (FRA) vs THW Kiel (GER) will also be broadcast live on both websites. The objective of the cooperation between the EHF and LAOLA1.tv is to increase the media coverage and the number of spectators of all EHF competitions on an international level.
