Telekom Veszprem cup champion in Hungary

After another classic final Telekom Veszprem received the prestigious cup title. The ever-lasting rivalry with Pick Szeged continued, but the red giant had the upper hand after the break and won by three goals, 33–30.

Veszprem has won all the cup editions in the decade and summed up title number 31 after the 2023/24 final on neutral ground in Tatabanya.

After a good start in defense, including solid positioning and blocks by Patrik Ligetvári, Veszprem led by three goals. Miguel Martins brought Szeged closer with improved attacks to 15–16 at half-time.

Veszprem lost Nedim Remili in the back court because of a red card. But the battle for command was in control. Even though Szeged pushed and had some fast breaks with Mario Sostaric in focus, Veszprem stood up and gained penalties which Yahia Omar could convert.

All in all, Veszprem has beaten Szeged in five games this season. The play-off remains, starting in Veszprem´s arena on Friday.
