The other referees taking charge of the matches with Franco Cachia will be Pascal Lemal (Belgium), Eduardo Jose Fernandes Coelho (Portugal) and  Gabriel Constantin Gherman (Romania).

UEFA representatives Antonin Herzog (Czech Republic) and  Victor Beceiro (Spain) will act as Referee Observer and Delegate, respectively.

Ugra Yugorsk (Russia), Araz Naxçıvan (Azerbaijan), Hamburg Panthers (Germany) and Nacional Zagreb (Croatia) will be contesting this Elite Round Group B mini-tournament to be played in the Sports Hall Dom Sportova, Zagreb.  Ugra won the title on debut last season and face former semi-finalists Araz, and the first German side to get this far, Hamburg Panthers.
