- Kyiv “Aviator” (38:17), the winner of the Cup of Ukraine-2020
- Kharkov “HTZ-Olimp” ( 31:12), which had previously won three victories in three matches
- Lviv “Lionesses” (14:12), already meaningless duel, because Odessa women won the trophy ahead of schedule
In Kyiv, the Odessa men’s club CREDO-1963 defeated its rivals in the group – Dnipro Dnipro (48: 0) and the local Antares (31: 5); in the semifinals defeated its main rival in this tournament: Evolution- 7’s “(29: 7), and in the final they beat Sokil from Lviv (33:12).
