New ball designs for EHF club competitions revealed


Feast your eyes on the new designs of the official SELECT SPORT match balls which will be used across EHF Champions League and European Handball League matches during the 2020/21 season.

After four highly successful years of cooperation with SELECT SPORT as the official ball supplier to club handball’s elite competitions, a newly signed deal will run for a further four seasons until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

The new eye-catching balls for the EHF Champions League competitions next season will be used, launched and go on sale exclusively at the EHF FINAL4 2020 in Cologne and Budapest respectively.

SELECT SPORT have also unveiled the ball for the new European Handball League, which throws off in 2020/21. This ball, which will be the same for the men’s and women’s competition, will be launched at this season’s men’s EHF Cup Finals.

“Players can once again expect to benefit and enjoy using a ball that makes for fast-paced, exciting handball at the highest level of club competition in Europe.”

Peter Knap, CEO of SELECT, said: “The past four years have brought some great handball moments with EHF Marketing, and we are very happy to continue the partnership.
