Handball players of the First Gas Company Zagreb learned about their opponents in the eighth finals of the Croatian Cup. For placement among the top eight teams, current champions and conquerors of the Kupa will face forces with Sesveta team. The term for the eighth Cup Final is 08. February 2017. but it is quite possible that because of the obligations of the Croatian champion in SEHA League and the EHF Champions League it is possible to change the same.
Apart from Sesveta and PPD Zagreb, in the eighth finals of the Croatian Cup, the following doubles will play:
SOLIN - DUBRAVA
VIDOVEC - ZAMET
NEXE - SPAČVA
VARAŽDIN 1930 - GORICA
BROD - UMAG
KTC - SPLIT
YOUTH RUDAR - COOK
Handball players of the first gas company Zagreb are currently on a deserved vacation, and the gathering of the first team is foreseen for 09. January. After four days of training in the box of matches, the best Croatian handball players will go to Porec where they will make the winter part of the preparation from 13. to 22. January.
The coach of PPD Zagreb Silvio Ivandija will certainly not have several very important players presently on representative training and therefore the first team of the Croatian champion in Poreč is expected to join the members of another team trained under the leadership of coach Luka Panze.
Due to representative commitments, the best Croatian club can not currently count on the services of Zlatko Horvat, Ivan Stevanovic, Stipe Mandalinić, Luke Šebetić, Tino Kontrec and Lovro Jotić who are preparing for the Croatian Handball Team. Also, the same is true of the Slovene trio Cingesar - Miklavčić - Skok, as well as the Macedonian representative Velko Markoski.
