With current and former national team handball players, well-known personalities, varied activities and competitions, as well as gastronomic complementary programmes, Grand Handball Day will appear on 9th of October, at BOK Sports Center. With less than 100 days to go until the start of the EHF EURO 2022 in Budapest on January 13, we are celebrating this milestone with a large-scale event for which admission is free.
Watch Games. See More. – the slogan of the European Championship will also be valid on Grand Handball Day. Handball will be the focus of the all-day event, and additional activities will guarantee a pleasant stay for all ages.
The programmes will start at 9 a.m. and the venue will be alive until sunset. First the children and then the young people can complete handball challenges, test their skills, just as our theme park will be available to try all day long. Here the newest digital devices will measure – among othert things – the strength and efficiency of shots or just reaction time.
The members of the Hungarian national team preparing for the European Championship will also be there at the event, in addition to the meet and greet.
It is expected that there will be a great deal of interest in the half-hour game of celebrities and former members of the Hungarian men’s team, as well as the early afternoon nostalgia match, in which several of the former dominant figures in European handball will take part.
During the day, college students as well as seniors will also play short matches, but there will be a wheelchair handball demonstration and skill competition, as will the world-famous Face Team acrobatic handball show.
Not even an issue, that one of the main characters of the Grand Handball Day may be the mascot figure of the European Championship, Tricky, the quirky deer will be responsible for the most relaxed atmosphere. Moreover, he will have a little play in the adventure park with his colleagues, mascots of sports organizations and clubs.
Gastronomic programmes will also brighten the day: alongside VIWA Vitaminwater and The Box Donut., Miklós Csabi’s Cellar – which offers a limited edition wine for the EHF EURO 2022 – and the Horizont Budapest brewery will be there at this event. They are getting ready for the day witrh a little surprise.
