20240526 ELM Finals Quote Wiederer
You can't expect more from a premiere. It was the first time in a new arena and the image that's given here is very positive. As far as the audience response is concerned, I look back at the EHF FINAL4 in Cologne: We also started from 0 to 100 in a large hall, and in the first year it was an incredible fight to get the spectators into the arena. We assume that we will also be in Hamburg next year for the EHF Finals; discussions with all partners are already underway. We are moving forward cautiously but our goal is to stay for the long term.

At the end they kept fighting and fighting and we made some mistakes. But we are just happy, we played a lot better than yesterday. Today was still not our best match, but a lot better.
