USA Team Handball announced earlier today a landmark partnership deal with the German Bundesliga (HBL). The deal is comprehensive and includes, among other things, HBL assistance in player development, TV broadcasts and German club team visits to the U.S. Details are in the press release.
It’s hard not to overstate what a potential watershed moment this could be for Handball in the U.S. The HBL has the resources and cachet to truly make a difference. If both sides follow through on the partnership in the years to come it can only be good news for the sport.
