EHF BRINGS WOMEN’S HANDBALL LEAGUES TOGETHER
The European Handball Federation brought together more than 40 representatives of Europe’s women’s handball leagues for the first EHF Women’s Handball League Convention on the fringes of the EHF FINAL4 Women 2023 in Budapest in June 2023.
“The leagues play an important part in the further development of women’s handball. However, on the European level they are not as organised yet as their male counterparts. We consider it vital that they are fully integrated and today we have made the first steps towards this goal,” EHF Secretary General Martin Hausleitner said.
The meeting included an introduction to the Men’s European Handball League Board (EHLB) by its chairman Nikolas Larsson, and an overview of the leagues' tasks in the development of national handball by Hausleither. Vanessa Khalfa, head of France’s Ligue Féminine de Handball, and Frank Bohmann, managing director of the German men’s Bundesliga, presented best practice examples.
