The assembly of clubs of the TOYOTA Handball-Bundesliga (HBL) decided unanimously on 1st December 2012 that league matches as of season 12/13 will be played basically
on weekends. A re-scheduling of league matches in favor of European Cup matches will ‘basically not possible’.

This information was passed to the European Handball Federation (EHF) with a long list of arguments.

The scheduling of the VELUX EHF Championsleague (CL) matches during the weekend significantly limits the interests of the majority of European clubs. If league matches are scheduled during the week, less tickets are sold and younger people are not able to attend the matches. Sponsors are annoyed about the permanent changes. The sale of the rights for the National league is more difficult due to a lack of clear calendar. On the other hand a clear calendar will raise the TV ratings of Handball in all competitions.

FORUM CLUB HANDBALL (FCH) will discuss this issue during its 7th ordinary General Assembly on 28th Janurary 2012 in Belgrade. GB
