The major topic of the Agenda will be the future Championsleague system. Almost one half of the FCH member Clubs would like to increase the number of CL-matches although the second half of the clubs would like to stay with the current system or even decrease the number of CL matches.

In the second – internal – part of the meeting, FCH will determine the conditions for the renewal of the ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ between Clubs and EHF which expires in June 2014.

El Club Balonmano Neptuno comunica a todos los aficionados y seguidores del Balonmano Atlético de Madrid, que ante las dificultades actuales por las que atraviesa nuestra economía y que afecta a todas las entidades, las deportivas entre ellas, esta sociedad ha tomado la decisión de no continuar en su actividad deportiva,cerrando en consecuencia todas las secciones de la misma.

La falta de patrocinadores y apoyo logístico de las Instituciones Públicas, unido a la imposibilidad de que por parte de los altos directivos del Club Balonmano Neptuno se puedan seguir realizando las aportaciones económicas necesarias que a fondo perdido se venían realizando, han hecho imposible la supervivencia del Club.

El apoyo moral de las Instituciones de Madrid hasido insuficiente a la horade hacer la valoración final y llegar a una conclusión positiva que junto ala aportación del Atlético de Madrid hiciera viable el proyecto.

Quiero agradecer al Atlético de Madrid el apoyo prestado a nuestro Club durante los dos años que ha estado disputando las competiciones ubicado en la ciudad de Madrid, tanto a nivel económico como organizativo y moral. Especialmente tengo que dar las gracias a Miguel Ángel Gil (Director General del Club) y a Enrique Cerezo (Presidente de la entidad) por habernos abierto las puertas del Atlético de Madrid.

Igualmente damos las gracias a todos los aficionados y seguidores del Atlético de Madrid por su apoyo en los partidos disputados, felicitándolos a la vez porque hemos podido apreciar, de primera mano, lo que es una verdadera afición con mayúsculas. Especialmente debemos rendir tributo a nuestros jugadores, cuerpo técnico y personal adscrito al Club que con su profesionalidad han llevado al equipo a disputar finales de todas las competiciones nacionales e internacionales.

Por último, y debido a la imposibilidad de mantener económicamente el Club Balonmano Neptuno, pese al apoyo económico del Atlético de Madrid, y con la ayuda del mismo, se procederá a una liquidación ordenada de la entidad siguiendo los procedimientos legales correspondientes.

In a number of points the parties achieved agreements. The EHF Leadership offered to increase the compensation amounts for clubs, releasing players to European Championships and refused the wish of the clubs to receive a referral right on issues, concerning professional handball. The FCH president will present the results of the meeting to the General Assembly (GA), taking place in Cologne/GER on 2nd June 2013. The GA will decide upon the strategy for the further procedure.

In September he was elected as President of Spanish ASOBAL, now he brings first ideas into handball. In MUNDODEPORTIVO he says: ‘In terms of the sport we are top, but the halls in Spain are empty. We have to revolutionize our sport. We have no money and no sponsors, we need to be creative. We are optimistic, because the situation can only improve.’ Coll proposes to think in all directions and to unify forces. The clubs should work intensively on the number of spectators. ‘We should think about one chinese player per team, to raise interest for our sport in China. … Argentina, Tunesia or China might be interested to host a 3-days-tournament with Spanish teams.’ His team Barcelona has the task to remain on top level with less sources.
