The history of Annliz Cup SuperElit

Annliz Cup SuperElit was started in 2013 as a way to create high quality pre seasonal matches for top teams in Sweden. The name “Annliz Cup” comes from Annliz Frisk, a person who contributed to Skövde HF for decades, who past away in 2012. After some years the tournament stated the phrase “where the best teams meats the best”.
In 2019, with a new management and a new highly dedicated head coach (Rasmus Poulsen) invitations to top international teams became successful. The tournament moved to Idrottshallen Arena and an event area was built up close to the handball court. Handball was mixed with other activities on the event area. A new concept was created which is the frame for 2022.

Your stay in Skövde


Skövde is a quite small city with 55 000 inhabitants. This offers a closeness to everything and hotels are located close to the playing arena. Teams can easily walk to the arena or use our taxi service provided during the stay.
We work with three hotels that makes your stay really nice.


Breakfast is served at the hotel and lunch and dinner is served at the arena based on your playing schedule. We listen to all teams wishes.

Food is made by a local catering company which teams from 2023 has given 5 star rating in quality. The food is great and we are confident you will agree!

Fruits will be available for all teams as well.

The Arena

The games will be played in Skövde Idrottshall which is a small venue that can hold 1400 people in the audience.
Skövde has a bigger Arena that holds 2500 people in the audience but the cup management has decided that we stay in the old sports arena to have an intimate and cosy environment. Teams and audience are mixed together if the teams are ok with this.


Referees will be from the Swedish National League, Handbollsligan or similar.

The Event Area

Surrounding the games an event area will be built up on the tennis courts just some meters from the arena. The event area is for everyone to feel cosy and here the teams eat lunch and dinner.
The audience are really close to the teams but a private area exist for the teams if they want to relax without fans running around taking selfies.
Our hope is that many players take the opportunity to mingle with the fans and share their experience on social media

The Vision

Annliz Cups vision is to create a handball week in Skövde each summer where top international teams meet to start up the season. A place for referees to warm up before the season starts and where the handball fans meet to cherish the sport they love. We hope all teams feel the energy in our engagement to make the stay in Skövde professional and with a wish to come back .
