The Court of Arbitration of the European Federation (ECA) has decided to dismiss the appeal filed by the Benidorm Handball Club and confirm the EHF’s decision to eliminate us from the competition.
“The Benidorm Handball Club does not understand that the circumstances of the false positives have not been taken into account in addition to the guidelines of the health authorities of the Valencian Community regarding the strict follow-up of the protocol, said resolution being based on the failure of the Club to the match of return.
We have always been guided by fair play and we have been transparent at all times, timely informing all national and European health and sports authorities.
For this reason, we do not understand that we are harmed so seriously and that none of the arguments presented have been considered valid and justified.
The Benidorm Handball Club studies the steps to follow, including the possibility of resorting to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) as a last resort, understanding that a profound injustice continues to be committed”
