SPORTING wins first ever European Cup for Portuguese Handball!

Historical win for Sporting and for Portuguese Handball!

We've just finished beating in Almada (my home town!) in front of a packed 3,500 sports hall, the Polish side of MMTS Kwidzyn by 27-26, in the second leg of the Challenge Cup final, confirming the first leg win in Poland (27-25).

It was the third time that a Portuguese club reached the final of the Challenge Cup, which is the second biggest European club competition in Handball. ABC de Braga and Sporting da Horta did it respectively in 2004/05 and 2005/06, but they were beaten by the Swiss of Wacker Thun and the Romanians of Steaua Bucharest.

Finally it was Sporting Clube de Portugal to bring victory to Portugal. In fact it's the biggest ever win for our country's Handball, a great feat by the most eclectic of all Portuguese sports clubs.
