After the FIFA World Cup, currently played in South Africa, the International Football Federation FIFA will pay a compensation of 40 Mio USD to the clubs for release of players to the National Teams.

This amounts to about 1.600 USD ‘per player per day’. The calculation starts two weeks prior to the opening match of the championship.

Accidents in sports are unavoidable and unpredictable, the financial consequences for the injured player and the concerned club are the result of the existing insurance coverage.

From the very beginning it is one of the major topics of GCH to unify the conditions for release of players to the national team – and to unify the according insurance system.  

Point 5.2 of the Memorandum of Understanding, signed by Clubs/FCH and EHF states:

‘FCH and EHF agree on the principle that each day a player spends with the national team/selection his salary should be insured by the National Federation, EHF or IHF in case of injury in favour of the clubs.’

On occasion of the Bielecki-injury FCH/GCH would like to remind that it is the firm intention of the clubs to establish an insurance system, integrating all concerned parties (such as Clubs, National federations, EHF and IHF) in order to safeguard the interests of players and clubs.

For the moment such a global insurance system is not existing. GB

Rhein-Neckar-Lions super star Karol Bielecki, one of the best players in the world, was seriously injured on his eye during a friendly match Poland vs Croatia last week.

The left back signed a new 5-years-contract with his club two weeks ago.

GCH asked RNL Manager Thorsten Storm to submit best wishes for a speedy recovery to Bielecki. All GCH clubs would be happy to see the Vice-Worldchampion 2007 back on the pitch as soon as possible.  GB
