And it is with great pleasure for both club, fans and sponsors, that it can once again participate in the european klubhåndbold and joins the Herning-Ikast and Viborg, denmark, as the Danish team in the tournament.
- Both for the sponsors, but also for the fans that have travelled around with us. In all corners of Europe they have been with us, " says Soren Jakobsen.
the Club's fans were in the years disappointed to Nykøbing Falster not managed to secure access to the EHF Cup through its ligaplacering.
Nykøbing was in ninth place, as the HTH League was halted due to coronakrisen.

the Club had figured out that european involvement in the worst case could cost around 400.000 euros.
With a grant of 85,000 Danish kroner from the Guldborgsund Municipality may just get it to hang together.
Different is the situation in Aarhus, which United with the 'bleeding heart' had to thank the ' no ' to the ticket to the EHF Cup.
- After thorough consideration we have decided to refuse it. It has been a difficult decision, says chairman Mads Winther.
the Economy was not enough, and a unanimous board of directors has made the choice not to play european handball next year.
And although Mads Winther believes it is the right decision, is ærgrelsen to take and feel.
- It could be great to travel out in Europe and give some young players the experience.
And so would aarhusiansk handball have the benefits of european participation, he says.
the Tournament is for most teams an expensive pleasure, since there are many expenses associated with that travel.
Copenhagen Handball and Silkeborg-Voel was already financially pressed by coronapandemien, and therefore it was not possible for them to participate in next year's EHF Cup.
Randers HK, which is of Nykøbing in the table, have thanks no.
