Greece excluded from Women’s 17 EHF Champ and have to pay 25.000 fine

On Tuesday, 2 August 2017 at the Women’s 17 EHF Championship played in Skopje, FYR Macedonia the Greek national team left the court after 32 seconds of their scheduled match against the home team in protest at the fact that team officials were wearing clothing with the name ‘Macedonia’ displayed.

Proceedings were opened against the Greek Handball Federation following the match and the Disciplinary Committee found that the team had an obligation to play the match according to the regulations of the EHF, announced European Handball Federation and added decision about this case.

Pursuant to Article B.7 of the EHF List of Penalties, the Greek team was excluded from the remainder of the competition and based on Articles 12 and 14.1 of the EHF Legal Regulations, the result of the preliminary round matches were awarded with the score 0:10 and 0:2 points.

The federation was also fined €25.000 and further damages may be payable. The Panel stopped short of imposing any further suspension of the Greek national team beyond the event.

The Greek Handball Federation has the right to appeal but given the fact that the Women’s 17 EHF Championship is ongoing any appeal will not have any suspensive effects.

    Greeks should be abolished from Olympic games, for mixing sport with politics. Not excepting name Makedonija is beyond my understanding of teaching youth in Greece, how to threat Macedonians.
    Shame is on you, Greeks.
    Already 100 years, and Greece has not progressed into civilised nation.
    And Olympic games were not Greek invention.
    Something is very wrong with Greeks.
    250.000 Euros would be appropriate.
