The fifth year of the Youth International tournament “Handball is my future” is on the way! Strong international event for generation 1998 will be held in Bugojno, city in the middle of Bosnia and Herzegovina thanks to the general sponsors Qatar Handball Federation and Mr. Asim Sahman (handball goalkeeper’s coach), local organizer.
This year, eight teams from three continents (Asia, Africa and Europe) will take participation in one of the most interesting events for cadets outside official IHF calendar. Host team Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Poland, Switzerland, Bahrain, Tunisia and Qatar will compete for the medals and winning trophy between April 13 and 16.
- I expect that tournament will be interesting as in previous years – said tournament’s director Asim Sahman, who worked as a coach in Qatar for more than a decade.
- We hope that domestic fans will enjoy handball days in Bugojno and have chance to see some of the future stars of handball. Our expectations are to raise number of fans, but also to become a part of the IHF calendar in order to attract national teams of Denmark, France, Spain, Germany and other handball countries. For the first time, we will have teams from three continents.
