Wild card tournament[edit]

Initially five teams applied for the four tournament places and following the decision of the European Handball Federation the request from the Danish Handball Association for Skjern Handbold was rejected.[5] The clubs were drawn together automatically according to their league coefficient and decided the winner of the tournament using a final four system.[6] Only the victorious team advanced to the Champions League group stage, while the losing sides continued their European adventure in the EHF Cup. The tournament was held at 3–4 September 2011, and was organized by Vive Targi Kielce.[7]
