We are a little more than a week away from the biggest handball festival – the VELUX EHF FINAL4!
Are you excited as we are?
There is just something magical about this weekend, when you get a full dose of excellent performance, world’s best players, lots of excitement, positive energy and sweat!
As a proud sponsor of such an amazing event (and sport) we want to make sure that you - #simplyfan, get the best fan experience possible.
That’s why we collected all the information we could and create this little, useful guide for you.
THE CITY OF COLOGNE
If it’s your first time in Cologne than you just can’t leave the city without ‘selfie’ in front of the Cologne Cathedral. This Cologne’s most iconic UNESCO World Heritage is a total “must see”.
On the other side, if you have already been to Cologne and saw the Cologne Cathedral than we have another suggestion for you – especially if you have sweet tooth – a Chocolate Museum.
In case you are more a ‘beer kind of a person’ you will love the Belgian District.
The EHF and sponsor partners did a great job with organizing all kinds of activities for you fans to enjoy them. We won’t name all of them but here are some of them that could catch your attention at the FINAL4 weekend.
LANXESS ARENA – INDOOR ACTIVITES
GORENJE - #SIMPLYFANSWALL
Help us create a #simplyfanswall of the season by taking a photo anywhere in the arena. Just tag and follow @gorenjesimplyfans profile on INSTAGRAM, add #simplyfanswall or take a photo at the Gorenje stand and get one to go too.
Let`s see what happens when fans come together and cheer together for handball.
VELUX – Color by You
Go to the stand and get your face painted in the colors of your favorite team to show your support during the VELUX EHF FINAL4 weekend. Experience the object of desire – the VELUX EHF Champions League trophy – up close on Sunday from 17:00 to 17:30 hrs. Take a picture with the trophy!
At the arena you will be also able to meet TropS, the official mascot of the City of Cologne. Take a picture and get valuable Information about the city and its sporting calendar.
LANXESS ARENA – OUTDOOR ACTIVITES
GORENJE – WIN A #SIMPLYFANS FRIDGE
Check the 4 cute #simplyfans fridges at our Gorenje stand and guess the winner of the match.
After each match the #simplyfans team will select a lucky winner of a Gorenje Retro fridge.
That means four matches, four lucky winners and four new owners of Gorenje fridges.
Take the challenge at the SELECT stand in front of the arena and show your skills at the SpeedGoal activation.
SPECIAL ATTRACTION: BALL OF FAME
In order to honor the past winners of the VELUX EHF Champions League and the successful development of the VELUX EHF FINAL4, a handball monument will be erected in front of the LANXESS arena. The ‘Ball of Fame’, designed by an Austrian artist, will look like a giant handball surrounded by glass displays showing the event’s winners.
Handball will therefore become a permanent part of the grounds of LANXESS arena and the ‘Ball of Fame’ shall serve as a photo opportunity for everyone.
As you can see this is really going to be a handball festival, full of attractions for you to enjoy! We wish you a lot of fun and we hope you come by to our Gorenje stands and say hi! We love to meet our #simplyfans!
