GB Women to play Euro pre-qualification tournament

The European Handball Federation have today confirmed that Great Britain Women's team will play against Finland, Greece and Azerbaijan in September. The top two nations will then progress to the qualification groups.
The host nation has not been announced but it is believed that Finland and Greece are both ready to host. Great Britain is unlikely to host the tournament unless a sponsor could be found to cover all costs.
The GB Women competed in the 4 nations tournament held in Sheffield last October, when they won the tournament against, Turkey U21, Faroe Islands and Latvia. In November they met Greece in the world championship qualifications when they beat them 25:23 link
