32 pairings revealed by EHF European Cup Women draw
64 teams have now discovered their maiden European opponents for the 2023/24 season after the completion of the EHF European Cup Women round 2 draw on Tuesday.
The European Cup Women begins with round 2, where defending champions Konyaalti BLD SK begin the defence of their crown with a trip to Bosnia Herzegovina to face RK Hadzici.
No restrictions were put on who could face each other in round 2, meaning teams from the same country could face each other. This resulted in an all-Greek tie between Anagennisi Artas and OFN Ionias.
The first team drawn for each round 2 pairing receives the home right in the first leg, scheduled for 23-24 September, with the second legs to take place on 30 September-1 October 2023.
The 32 winners proceed to round 3, with two-legged knockout ties continuing right through the tournament, including the final in May 2024.
