4. The biggest stars of handball
We probably don’t have to intruduce French Nikola Karabatic and Danish Mikkel Hansen as both are regarded as the best handball players of all time, but both will play their Main Round matches in the Budapest handball arena. The two of them supplemented with Danish goalkeeper Niklas Landin are the last five winners of the IHF World Player of the Year award.
The list does not stop there, because the best of the best are coming to Budapest, for example Vincent Gerard (goalkeeper, FRA), Magnus Saugstrup (line player, DEN) Ludovic Fabregas (line player, FRA), Hugo Descat (left wing, FRA), Mathias Gidsel (right back, DEN), Dika Mem (right back, FRA), Aron Palmarsson (centre back, IZL), Luc Steins (centre back, NED).
