One of the most interesting handball events at the end of 2016 will be held in Bosnian city of Brcko. Since 2003 “Lokomotiva Cup” , international youth tournament gathering impressive numbers of young handball boys and girls, and that will be the same this December (16-18), when a lot of handball guests from Balkan region, but also all over Europe, will come.
- We have over 50 teams from different countries on the tournament. Some of the teams are every-year competitors, some will come for the first time. We had teams from BiH, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary,Denmark, Macedonia and Greece, but we expect for this edition also Slovakian, French and Israeli teams – said Management board President Zvjezdana Nedic.
- We began with the tournament of only one category. First, and now our permanent guests are RK Celje PL, RK PPD Zagreb, RK Partizan Beograd, etc. We wanted regional tournament in one category, but then everything raised in three categories with global background.
Lokomotiva Cup 2016 has clear vision…
- Social character of the tournament is very important for us. Lokomotiva Cup was the start of some beautiful friendships among the people from different countries and that is something most valuable what sports can give us. Our plans are ambitious. Some interests for the tournament showing handball people from other continents and that gives some new dimension to Lokomotiva Cup – concludes Nedic.
