AUDIO: Interview with USA Team Handball Chairman, Dieter Esch

During a break in the action at last weekend’s National Championships, USA Team Handball (USATH) Chairman, Dieter Esch and board member, Jeff Utz sat down with me for a nearly hour long interview/discussion. The interview is focused on USATH’s relations with other handball organizations (IHF, PATHF, HBL, etc) and the upcoming Germany-Poland friendly match that will take place on July 17th in Chicago.

In the wide ranging discussion, Mr. Esch doesn’t hesitate to express his opinion and notably he candidly expresses his dissatisfaction with IHF President, Mr. Hassan Moustafa in regards to his private consulting contract with the IHF’s TV partner, as well as a lack of business sense in regards to emerging markets.
