Dusseldorf Wants To Host European Handball Federation's Final4 Event
Dusseldorf, Germany "is interested in hosting the European Handball Federation Final4 event in its football stadium," according to RP ONLINE. EHF General Secretary Michael Wiederer said, "This is very interesting to me because it's a total different concept. We have to think about it." The EHF's contract with Cologne as the Final4 host expires in '14. The Cologne organizers have already said that "they are interested in continuing to host the event." Wiederer said, "We feel that we have good partners here. But we are obligated to scour the market. Besides all positive aspects, we also have a business obligation, and we want to put on the best possible event." Besides Dusseldorf, the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns arenas in Hamburg, Berlin and London, "is also interested in hosting the EHF Final4." The federation "will decide on a future host at the end of the year" (RP ONLINE, 6/2).
