IHF + hummel + Partille Cup
hummel and the IHF replaces the traditional Player of The Match-trophy during the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championshipsand instead give the player a direct opportunity to pass on talent and passion for handball to the next generation by donating hummel handball equipment for less fortunate children.
The 26th edition of the IHF Men’s World Championships will take its be- ginning on January 10 in the two host countries, Denmark and Germany. As always, one player from each game during the whole tournament will be named as Player of The Match (POTM). But this year, hummel will do it a bit differently.
At the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championships each Player of The Match will receive the privilege of passing the sport of handball on to less fortu- nate children. By winning the Player of The Match-award the given player will be donating hummel handball apparel and handball equipment to a youth handball team that normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to play handball.
The equipment will be passed on to Partille Cup – the World’s largest youth handball tournament. Here the apparel will be distributed via Partille Cup’s so-called “We Care”-program that helps less fortunate children and teams to participate in the tournament and share the game of handball. All in all hummel will end up donating handball equipment for 1.152 children.
