Würth becomes Official Partner for Men’s and Women’s EHF EUROs 2024
MEDIA RELEASE: Würth Group, a global market leader in the development, production and sale of fastening and assembly materials, becomes Official Partner of the upcoming Men’s and Women’s EHF EUROs 2024.
As part of the agreement, which has been brokered by Infront Sports & Media, the European Handball Federation’s exclusive media and marketing partner, Würth will receive a range of visible and non-visible rights at the Men’s EHF EURO 2024 in Germany (10-28 January) and the Women’s EHF EURO 2024 held in Austria, Hungary and Switzerland (28 November-15 December).
The men’s event in Germany will mark the first engagement for the German company at an EHF EURO event, the European Handball Federation’s flagship national team tournament, granting them the opportunity to further strengthen the company’s brand on the German and international markets.
Martin Hausleitner, EHF Secretary General, said: “We are delighted to welcome Würth to the partners’ line-up for the two upcoming EHF EUROs. The Men’s EHF EURO 2024 will be a great opportunity to start a successful cooperation, while Würth seizes the opportunity to be present on the biggest stage of European handball and strengthen its brand in Germany and beyond. It makes us proud that Würth recognises the importance of women’s handball as they become an Official Partner for the Women’s EHF EURO in 2024. We look forward to making another step forward in the promotion of the women’s game.”
Fritz Hollweck, Head of Sport Sponsorships at Würth, said: “Handball being one of the most popular sports, we are happy to be a partner of the 2024 European Handball Championships. Handball and the skilled trades are a perfect match, because most of our customers work with their hands and can relate to the challenges of such a hands-on sport. It was very important for us to support the European Women's Championship. So far, the focus of many companies has been on football, so it was important for us to support other sports and draw attention to and promote women's handball in particular. We are looking forward to the two tournaments with exciting games and great performances.”
