EHF Champions Trophy

Short History

     The EHF Champions Trophy was an annual men's handball club competition, organized by EHF. The competition started as the IHF Supercup in 1979 and was played between the winner of IHF European Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup. It was organized by IHF, and it was played four more times before it was cancelled after the 1983 edition. The EHF rebranded the competition in 1996 as the EHF Supercup. It was played between the winner of EHF Champions League, EHF Cup and EHF Cup Winners' Cup and the fourth team, either a host or a special EHF invitee. For the 2008 edition, it was renamed again, to the EHF Champions Trophy. However, it was the last edition of the competition and after that it was cancelled.
