Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2020?
Baltic Handball League
The glory days of Granitas-Karys Kaunas may for now be in the past, but there is no doubt, this club is the most famous and successful team taking part in 2020/21 Baltic Handball League season. IHF Cup winner, 17-time domestic champion, five-time BHL winner and Soviet Union champion – no other club in BHL can match those achievements.
Being one of the oldest clubs in Baltic Handball League, the 2020/21 season is only the second time HK Ogre is taking part in the region's top competition. Besides SK Tapa, SK Latgols Ludza and Varsa-Stronglasas Alytus, the former Latvian cup-winner HK Ogre is the fourth new team compared to the previous, COVID-interrupted season.
Besides two clubs making their debut in September, 2020/21 Baltic Handball League season will also be welcoming back a team after a very long absence. Former Lithuanian champion Varsa-Stronglasas Alytus is returning to BHL after almost 30 years and will be the southern-most team in this season's competition.
The second team, making its Baltic Handball League debut this season, is SK Latgols Ludza from Latvia. Just like the other newcomer, SK Tapa, the two-time Latvian champion is known for producing star players, but will now measure themselves against the best teams in the region for the first time.
Not only is SK Tapa making a Baltic Handball League debut this season, but the club has never played in European club competitions either. So it will be a debut in official international competitions for the club, which has for very long been an excellent producer of talented players.
New-look Baltic Handball League will start the 2020/21 season on 2nd September. Twelve teams – four each from three Baltic States – will play twice against each other in a league-system, home and away before season continues with quarter-finals and Final Four in spring of 2021.
