Kielce wants to host EHF EURO 2016! New hall or expanded “Legion”?

Despite inadequate hall, the most ambitious handball city in Poland, Kielce doesn’t want to give up from hosting EHF EURO 2016. Only seven days after EHF decided to give Poland opportunity to organise flagship event – Men’s EHF EURO 2016, people from Kielce show their interest to welcome the best organised event in handball. “Legion Hall” in Kielce has capacity from 3.000 to 4.000 seats, but with current model of reconstruction it would be possible to get 2.000 seats more for 6.000. The costs of this kind of reconstruction will be about third part of costs for a new modern hall.

President of Polish Handball Federation, Andrew Kraśnick says that if Kielce hall meet all the requirements of the EHF, ZPRP will give them opportunity to organise EHF EURO 2016, despite cities which were already in the official presentation: Lodz (Atlas Arena), Gdańsk (Ergo Arena), Katowice (Spodek), Wroclaw (Centennial Hall), Krakow (Czyżyny).
