A decade of handball is dawning in Germany: In addition to the men’s EHF EURO 2024, for which the German Handball Federation (DHB) was already awarded the contract two years ago, the federation will host the Men’s World Championship in 2027 and, together with the Netherlands, the Women’s World Championship in 2025. The German bid for the 2023 U21 World Championship was also successful!
It was an exciting challenge for our team to support the DHB – as we did when the EURO was awarded – again successfully in the bid for the major events. The joy was all the greater now that the DHB was awarded the contract for all three world championships!
“From 2023 to 2027, we will be hosting major handball events in Germany almost continuously. These are great opportunities to celebrate handball, build up stars and firmly anchor our sport in society. On this foundation, we can all together turn the 20s that have just begun into the decade of handball.” says Andreas Michelmann, President of the German Handball Federation.
