Top European Action Now with English Commentary

ENGLISH-speaking fans of the European handball scene will find it easier to follow top match action after the EHF launched a new Match of the Week feature.

Starting last Sunday, www.ehfTV.com will be showing live games with English commentary from the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League.

The www.ehfTV.com website has proved a massive hit, and continues to grow with this new expansion. Top Irish TV and radio commentator Tom O’Brannagain, who has provided the commentary on http://www.ehftv.com/ for several Champions League matches in the last two years, will do so for this new weekly feature.

“I can’t wait for the start of the new season and the chance to bring the fantastic action of the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League to handball fans across the world,” he said.

“I’ll be commentating live at some of the best matches of the season, and will be doing my best to bring the amazing atmosphere at these venues to the fans at home.”

And if you can’t watch the match live, they will also be offering a weekly highlights show called Champions League Rewind, which will feature match action and interviews with top players and coaches.

O’Brannagain is a former handball player and now coach of the Ireland national handball team. He provided the English language commentary for the 2008-09 EHF Champions League final in Kiel, and also covered the VELUX EHF FINAL4 2009-2010, commentating on all four matches and providing special video reports from Cologne.

The Match of the Week concept aims to bring a wide variety of matches featuring different clubs and venues to give handball fans a real flavour for the competition.

Sunday, Oct 3 (1445 GMT): THW Kiel v FC Barcelona Borges.
