In a handball team, players work together to achieve a common goal. This requires different roles with different skills. You can rely on these; you always know what to expect from each other. This is how a great team works.

We are the same

Three different countries with three different strengths, working as a team towards a common goal: to promote and celebrate women’s handball with a unique event. We strongly believe that all of our different roles are needed to create something great in 2024. You can trust on the world-famous punctuality of the Swiss people, the aimed of all things Austrian, and the passionate creativity of Hungarians. It is a constellation aims towards perfection. With our strengths combined, you can be rest assured that the Women’s EHF European Handball Championship 2024 will be unforgettable, because we are stronger together. In our team, trust is a keyword. No matter where we come from or what our skills are, this is a value we all share. Ultimately, trust is something that’s equally important for the host countries, and in terms of trust, it is guaranteed that we are capable of living up to the expectations and to exceed them.


Though the Alps do stop at the border and punctuality may not be the the first characteristic that comes to the mind regarding Hungarians, you can trust that even a given word is as good as a contract here. Passion can deliver the same results as calculated precision, even if through different paths but the result is the same. Things will be done with wits and heart.


For centuries, reliability has been a connotation of all things Swiss – from the punctuality or their timepieces through to the sharpness of their knives to the taste of their chocolate. It may sound stereotypical, but the basis of all are exist within the Swiss people: always striving for perfection. For this reason, you can be rest assured that every given task will be handled with the exact same perfectionism.


Just as the Alps do not stop at the border, the same solid values and punctuality surround the traveller all across Austria. Keen on sustainability, Austrians always put effort into delivering quality results regardless of the field of activity. And you can trust it will be so in the future.
