Team Sportia new partner

From today Team Sportia is a new partner to Partille Cup – World of Handball. The agreement runs for three years, until 2019. Team Sportia will among other things be responsible for all the merchandise associated with the event.

The world’s largest handball event for young people combined with Team Sportia, one of Sweden’s leading sports chains, will together create an even stronger event. Team Sportia will offer, not only for all the handball lovers, but also for all the visitors to the city of Gothenburg amazing products at the shop at Heden Center.

– We are very pleased and proud to announce Team Sportia as a new partner, says Fredrik Andersson, General Secretary of Partille Cup. Team Sportia, like us, have had a strong tailwind during the last recent years. Above all the shops in Gothenburg. Our common passion for sports and to have customers in focus makes me confident that our brands match each other in many ways, says Fredrik.

Håkan Tidstrand runs with his family the Team Sportia stores in Gothenburg and will be focusing on giving the visitors the best experience of the sport chain.

– It is very fun to work with Partille Cup and be able to reach the wide handball audience. Being a part of Partille Cup is an honour for us and to support children and young people is close to our heart. It is an exciting challenge and we look forward to meet all the people from all over the world, says Håkan.

New additions to Training Camp

For this year’s camp, we decided to offer the goalkeepers specialized training. The goalkeeper is one of the most important positions in handball and therefore, we want to give them some extra training, motivation and inspiration to take their game to next level.

For one hour, you could have the chance to practice with an experienced goalkeeping-coach. We will mix goalkeepers from all teams in the same age, so everyone can learn together and share experiences.

If this sounds interesting, please send a mail to with the number of goalkeepers you want to register and their age.

Summary 2016

The weekend before Partille Cup, we had teams representing USA, Zimbabwe, Chile, Brazil and Peru in our Training Camp. Experienced coaches from the Swedish Handball Federation and the local team IK Sävehof trained the teams. The players got new skills, tried new exercises and went on to play really well in the tournament the following week.

The first teams arrived on Thursday and started the weekend with practice, which continued on Friday. On Saturday we had friendly games at Ugglums skolan and in the end of the day we had a nice BBQ. Our last day of practice, was also the last day for the instructors and teams together, before the big tournament, Partille Cup began.

For the coaches we gave them the opportunity to visit Partille Cup’s head office and listen to the coach, Martin Fredlund. He spoke about how we develop handball players in Sweden, it was a successful event and the coaches got answers to their questions. During this time, they could also share experiences with each other.


We are so happy that you enjoyed Training Camp and we hope to see you again in 2017!
