Official Partners of the EHF
The EHF partners are an integral part of the future of European Handball. The EHF places great importance on the term 'partnership' rather than 'sponsorship' and strives to work with highly reputable global companies with a respected name on both the sporting and business markets.
The emphasis is placed on long-term, deep-rooted, working relationships which power the sport of handball forward.
The EHF would like to use this opportunity to thank its partners for their continued support and dedication to European Handball.
We are proud to have our name linked to such professional companies.
