EHF funding boost for junior handball

The European Handball Federation has awarded England Handball €5000 to support clubs with the costs of the Under-18 League over the next two seasons, and the delivery of a new Under-15 (born 2002) competition in 2017.

The England Handball Board has agreed that the funding will be used to:

  • cover 25% of the venue and refereeing costs for the 2016/17 Under-18 season
  • cover 15% of the venue and refereeing costs for the 2017/18 Under-18 season  

This will enable the Under-18 competition organiser Dave Partington to reconfigure the fees due from the teams, reducing their required level of investment into each event.

England Handball Director of Competitions and Events Marc Fayemi said: “This is great news. We are very grateful to the European Handball Federation for this investment.

 “The Under-18 competition is expanding year-on-year. Add to this the new Under-15 competition in 2017 and it is plain to see our exciting, high-scoring, action-packed team sport is growing and capturing the imagination of a new generation.”
