In addition, the association was awarded the contract for the Junior World Championships in 2023.
“It’s great for the handball association and sport in general if we can hold the tournaments in our own country. Not just for the euphoria in Germany and the children, who will hopefully also be enthusiastic about handball,” said Gensheimer: “They too Other nations were always enthusiastic about the good organization that prevailed here. It was always great events and everyone was really happy.”
