Men’s EHF EURO 2024: Next major sales phase starts 13 September
The Men’s EHF EURO 2024 in Germany (10-28 January) is experiencing an unprecedented run on tickets. With six months to go until throw-off, 200,000 tickets, more than 45% of the entire availability, have already been sold or reserved.
Several matchdays, such as the opening one in Düsseldorf’s MERKUR Spiel-Arena, the Berlin matches in group A to which Germany had been seeded, and the final weekend in Cologne have been highly sought after.
The European Handball Federation, together with the German Handball Federation (DHB) announce that the next major sales phase across all venues will start on 13 September 2023. This marks the day when several contingents currently blocked for the participating nations’ fans can be released in case they are not used.
Smaller contingents may already be released in the meantime. The EHF and the DHB advise all fans interested in purchasing EHF EURO 2024 tickets to regularly check the ticketing websites heretoplay.com as well as tickets.eurohandball.com.
Martin Hausleitner, EHF Secretary General, said: “Everything is set that the Men’s EHF EURO 2024 will be one for the handball books of history. The EHF is delighted that the demand for tickets is so high, and we advise every fan to regularly check our online ticket websites in order not to miss any new releases. At the same time and together with the German Handball Federation, we are doing our utmost to fulfil as many demands as possible in order not to leave anyone disappointed.”
Mark Schober, CEO of German Handball Federation, said: "The early and high ticket demand, especially for match days with our national team, is overwhelming! There are very few, if any, remaining tickets for preliminary round matches with German participation. It can still be worth taking a look at current offers at heretoplay.com, although I have to ask for your understanding that tickets on certain dates are currently no longer available."
