EHF fine Mikkel Hansen with 4.000 EUR for incident in Zagreb

Following an incident during the Men’s EHF EURO 2018 in Croatia, the Disciplinary Commission at the Men’s EHF EURO 2018 issued a warning to the Danish Handball Federation and a fine of €4,000 to the Danish player Mikkel Hansen, writes

The sanctions were issued following an altercation between the Danish player and a member of staff from the Croatian EHF EURO 2018 Organising Committee at the start of the half-time break in the semi-final match between Denmark and Sweden.

The Disciplinary Commission deemed the behaviour of Mikkel Hansen during this incident, in which the staff member was pushed and sworn at, to be a case of serious unsportsmanlike conduct.

It also issued a warning to the federation based on the fact that it is responsible for the conduct of its players.

Having re-examined the case and the relevant documentation provided within the course of the first instance and also the appeal proceedings, the EHF Court of Appeal found the decision of the EHF EURO Disciplinary Commission to be correct and proportionate.

If any of the parties wish to dispute the decision, they may bring a dispute before the EHF Court of Arbitration within 21 days.
