USA Team Handball has posted a notice on their website concerning the French Coupe de la Ligue tournament. USA Team Handball’s position is that the French Professional League and the Miami organizers need to request sanctioning from USA Team Handball and dissolve the recently formed American Team Handball Federation (ATHF).
I am seeking more information from both parties and will post new information as I get it. More informal discourse is available, as always, for everyone in the forum section of the website.
