German Cup, Quarterfinal:
Düren vs. Herrsching 2:3 (25:21, 16:25, 25:20, 24:26, 12:15)
[...]Nice surprise by Herrsching in Düren, i know a happy user on here. Congrats Bayer
[...]Due to the small size and height of their hall, Herrsching won't be allowed to play in their own gym. So it is still completely open, where they will play their semi-final.
Thank you TimHH.
But the handling of the situation by the VBL (German League) was far from professional.
There is a real shitstorm going on in Bavarian media at the moment because of two facts:
1. the right to play at home was simply withdrawn by the league. It was clear that Herrsching is not allowed to play a semifinal in their gym beforehand. But with the home field advantage Herrsching could have made a deal with other clubs to make an event out of their Cup semifinal. I don't know how they simply can withdraw a right.
2. the gym in KW (Netzhoppers) is about the same size (even a little smaller) that Herrsching's. But they're allowed to play. No one understands that.
