100 reasons to visit the Men’s EHF EURO 2014 in Denmark - Part 2
«Go back »Print Version


EHF EURO COUNTDOWN: The European Handball Federation’s flagship national team event is just around the corner - and eurohandball.com has been looking for reasons why you must not miss out on it
 

100 reasons to visit the Men’s EHF EURO 2014 in Denmark - Part 2

We are rapidly approaching the throw-off for the 2014 Men's EHF European Championship in Denmark.

From 12 to 26 January next year 16 European teams will show the very best handball has on offer in their quest for the sport's European throne.

With the event reaching the 100-days-to-go-mark in the first week of October and to whet the fans' appetite, eurohandball.com has started publishing 100 reasons why you should not miss out on this highlight of the 2014 handball calendar.

The reasons will be published in groups of 10 over the coming days and every day one reason will also be published on the event's official Facebook page.

While some are truly sports-based, some have to be read tongue-in-cheek, but overall they will give a picture why the 2014 European Championship is worth a visit.

For anyone who can't wait to be part of the Men's EHF EURO 2014, tickets are just a click away.

Here come reasons 11 to 20 why you should not miss out on the Men's EHF EURO 2014:

Reason 11: To find out whether any player scores more than 61 goals. This is the current EHF EURO  record set by Macedonian Kiril Lazarov at the EHF EURO 2012 in Serbia.

Reason 12: To watch the skills of a former EHF Champions League winner who has nowadays switched to the coaching position.  Oleg Kuleshov won Europe’s premier club competition with German side SC Magdeburg in 2002. Since 2012 he is at the helm of the Russian team together with Alexander Rymanov.

Reason 13: To experience the atmosphere at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning. With a capacity of 14,000 this is the biggest arena at the EHF EURO 2014 and there is no doubt that the venue for all Danish matches will be sell-out for almost all matches.

Reason 14: To go and see ‘The Little Mermaid’, one of Copenhagen’s (host city for Group D) most well-known monuments.

Reason 15: To say ‘welcome back’ to Norwegian Kristian Kjelling when he takes to the court for his country in Group B in Aalborg. The left had played club handball in Aalborg up until the past season, before transferring to Bjerringbro-Silkeborg.

Reason 16: To see the only Latvian-born player of the tournament taking to the court: Alexander Petersson (pictured), was born in Riga, but now plays for the country of his ancestors.

Reason 17: To cross fingers for Croatia for their quest of winning the one medal that has eluded them so far.  Even though they topped the podium at World Championships (2003) and Olympic Games (1996, 2004), they have never won an EHF EURO event. Instead Croatia had to be satisfied with silver (2008 and 2010) and bronze (1994, 2012) on two occasions respectively.

Reason 18: To be part of the third Men’s EHF EURO in Scandinavia after Sweden hosted the event in 2002 and Norway in 2008.

Reason 19: To count the number of ‘Viking helmets’ in the crowd – an item in particular worn by handball fans from Denmark, Norway and Iceland.

Reason 20: To celebrate the 32nd birthday of Polish left back Karol Bielecki on 23 January.

The next 10 reasons will be published on Friday, 11 October - stay tuned for more.

Reasons 1 to 10 can be read here.
