Trondheim welcomes EHF Executive Committee

The eleven members of the EHF Executive Committee, together with senior members of EHF office staff, were in Trondheim, Norway from 17 to 19 September 2015 for their third scheduled meeting of the year and the first of the 2015/16 season.

A full programme of events included a meeting with the Norwegian Handball Federation, where discussions included the federation’s involvement in the hosting of both the Men’s and Women’s EHF EURO 2020 (joint host with Sweden and Austria for the men’s event and joint host with Denmark for the women’s).

The Executive was also welcomed by the Mayor of Trondheim at an official reception. The city will be one of the venues for the Women’s EHF EURO in 2020 and is located in a region with 170 handball clubs and more than 17,000 registered players.

Reports and decisions

The meeting opened on Friday, 18 September with reports from the technical commissions following their latest round of meetings held in Vienna in early September.

Reports were also received from the latest meeting of the Finance Delegation as well as relating to legal management, anti-doping and the federation’s business units and partners.

A key discussion centred on proposals developed by the Competitions Commission for the new qualification process for teams for EHF EURO 2020, from which point the event will be expanded to 24 teams.

The decision was made to deal with these proposals further at the next meetings of the Nations Board and Professional Handball Board (scheduled for 13/14 October 2015) and to present the proposals to the national federations at the Conference of Presidents in Romania on 14 November 2015.

The Executive agreed to adaptations to the regulations for the merging of the Women’s EHF Cup and Women’s Cup Winners’ Cup from the 2016/17 season.

Looking at the proposals made by the EHF Methods Commissions, the Executive Committee approved SMART Projects with Estonia, Lithuania and Belgium; Foster Project with Belgium and France and also signing of the Rinck Convention with Belgium at the upcoming EHF Conference of Presidents in Bucharest on 14 November 2015.

Masters handball

Following an expression of interest in hosting the European Masters Handball Championship in 2016 from five different organisations, the Executive held an internal vote and awarded the event to Porec, Croatia. The championship will take place 17-19 June 2016.

Preparations for EHF EURO 2016

The meeting was informed about the preparations underway for the Men’s EHF EURO 2016 to be played across Poland 15-31 January 2016.

The extensive work of the Polish Handball Federation and EHF EURO 2016 Organising Committee in the preparations for the event were highlighted, as was the organisation of the top referee seminar in Vienna from 28-30 August 2015 and the upcoming Heads of Delegation meeting in Krakow, scheduled for 6-8 October 2015.
