London GD coach Miguel Puig Garcia is looking forward confidently to the tie against Livingston and hoping the action inspires a few more youngsters to take up handball.
"We were pretty lucky with the draw because there are chances here to get to the next round," Puig told BBC Sport. "The fact that we're playing against a Scottish team is one of the cool things."
Like many Olympic sports, handball attracted a lot of public interest in the wake of the GB team's appearance at London 2012
"After the Olympics in 2012 we got a lot of people who wanted to try the sport after they’d seen it on TV," recalled Puig.
"I remember the first weekend after the Olympics we got about 85 people in one venue wanting to try handball." In recent years, lack of funding and public attention has seen that growth slow.
"The sport is growing – every year we get more teams - but it’s not growing as fast as football or basketball or all the other sports," says Puig.
London's team has one of GB's best current players - local-born 22-year-old Will Moore, but the remainder of the team is made up of foreign imports from France, Germany, Romania and Spain.
Puig, a Spaniard, is happy that the tie will give his sport a chance to sell itself to a new audience.
“People really love it, it’s a sport played at very high speed with contact, technical and tactical ability," he said.
"It’s a mixture of football, volleyball and basketball. It’s popular in Germany and Spain and France – and in the UK, hopefully, in a few years.”
