Handball’s governing body, the European Handball Federation (EHF) has extended its Official Ball Supplier agreement with Danish sports equipment supplier Select Sport.

The agreement, which first began in 2016, will now run for a further four years until 2024.

The brand will supply the match ball at the EHF Euro tournaments in 2020, 2022 and 2024.

These events will feature Select’s ‘Ultimate iBall’ which provides real-time data on the action. The EHF claim this first “intelligent ball” will significantly increase fan engagement opportunities.

The company will also supply the ball for all other national team events under the EHF umbrella, including the youth European Championships and the Masters and wheelchair tournaments.

Select Sport has a strong presence in handball, having sponsored the Danish national handball team for over sixty years. It also supplies many leading European clubs and leagues.
