DHB VP Bob Hanning Plans To Cancel Allowances For National Team Players
German Handball Federation (DHB) VP Bob Hanning said that "he wants to scrap the allowances for national team players and introduce a performance-based system," according to the SID. Hanning: "We want to decide on removing the daily allowances for national team players. Players will only receive money if they have previously earned it." Players currently receive a daily allowance of €50 ($67) "if they are on national team duty." The new system "would be based on performance." Hanning said, "It has to be the same in the national team. You have to be able to pay bonuses for success" (SID, 11/8).
