Applications open for EHF Candidate Delegates course

For the first time since 2019, the European Handball Federation will be running an EHF Candidate Delegates course in April 2023, the eighth of its kind.

The course will be held at the Courtyard Vienna Prater/Messe hotel in Vienna, Austria from the afternoon of Friday 21 April to the afternoon of Sunday 23 April.

With the course running in the spring, it will be used to prepare new delegates for the 2023/24 season.

Since the last course for EHF candidate delegates was held nearly four years ago, the duties and responsibilities of an EHF delegate have changed significantly, from just being an observer of referees to being more of an event manager.

The course will consist of an educational part with various information being offered on event management, including the evaluation of referees’ performance at a recorded game, but will also have several testing parts where the candidates will have to prove a certain amount of knowledge and ability in view to their tasks and duties as an EHF Delegate.
