sele“SELECT has a long history in handball and a real passion for the sport, which is reflected in the quality of its products. This new partnership will offer not only the best possible playing conditions in top competitions but also the opportunity in the coming years for further product development and innovation on the handball market.”

SELECT CEO Peter Knap added: “At SELECT we have been developing balls for more than 65 years so we have a solid head start when it comes to ensuring quality in new solutions. SELECT’s 32-panel handball is still the best in terms of bounce, balance and perfect grip. At SELECT we have a deep understanding of the very nature of the sport which enables us to create the best professional solutions. We are thrilled with the agreement and look forward to our cooperation with the EHF.”

SELECT – The Players’ Choice

The new SELECT match ball is made of extremely hardwearing synthetic leather material. A patented zero-wing bladder inside the ball ensures optimal roundness and specially developed foam gives the EHF match ball an extremely soft feel and great fit in the hand. The ball is light and lively, but above all its constant balance ensures that there are no random bounces. In the best tradition of SELECT, all match balls are all hand-sewn.
