Confirmation came through from the EHF that Dublin International will be playing their 3 group games in the EHF Challenge Cup, with
the Croation outfit RK Sisica having agreed to host the tournament on the 9th – 11th of October 2009.

D.I.H.C. will start their journey to Sisak on Wednesday the 7th of October flying to London Stansted Airport before continuing to Pula, Croatia. From there, we will make our way to Sisak. In total, 13 players will be participating for D.I.H.C. making this the largest and strongest squad sent to Europe by any Irish team. With a team boasting 2 Irish Internationals and a host of quality players, D.I.H.C. hope to improve on previous years against some of Europe’s best clubs.

In preperation to the tournament, D.I.H.C. have arranged 1 friendly against Lughnasa, to be played at St Columba’s College, Co Dublin, on the 29th of August. However, D.I.H.C. hope to arrange another match before the teams heads out to Europe.
