WORLD OF HANDBALL
SWEDEN JULY 3-8 2017
MORE THAN 20 000 PARTICIPANTS 1 000 TEAMS, 45 NATIONS
PARTILLE CUP Partille Cup is the largest handball tournament in the world. It is also the most international handball event for youth handball players. The tournament has been arranged every year since 1970 – and during our 45-year-old history we’ve welcomed more than 500 000 players and leaders from all over the world. Annually we are visited by more than 20 000 participants from 45 countries, spread over more than 1000 teams. That’s what we call world of handball!
GATHERING THE FUTURE - TOGETHER For us, sport is more than a physical activity - it is a universal language. A language that holds the power to reduce our differences and unite us. What brings us together is our love for sport â€“ and our love for handball. That is what creates magic and what makes Partille Cup a unique global tournament. Weâ€™re building bridges between people. We are proud that we, every year, have the chance to let our differences in politics, culture and religion stand aside and make us all come together in a week full of joy, handball and friendship.
LOTS OF ACTIVITIES OPENING FESTIVAL CEREMONY LEADERS PARTY, PLAYERS CLUB...
EXPERIENCES The Partille Cup week is filled with activities for both players and leaders. As a start of the tournament we have our Opening Festival Ceremony in Scandinavium where flag parades, dance and music portray a world of handball. During three nights our players have their own disco â€“ the Players Club â€“ where the DJ play the latest hit songs and the party is a fact. In the middle of the week we also have our Leaders Party where thousands of leaders are invited to a great party with food and drinks, music and entertainment. This is a week full of experiences and pure magic!
IT’S UNIQUE WORLD’S LARGEST MEETING PLACE FOR HANDBALL YOUTHS
“The organizers of the Partille Cup does a fantastic job. High-class handball intermingled with a cross-border relations at the side of the handball fields. Handball is a great family where all show each other respect. Partille Cup is an important part of handball development in the world.” Uwe Gensheimer, Germany and Paris Saint Germain “I have been involved in Partille Cup twice, I think it’s the perfect tournament for young handball players! I look back on my trips to Gothenburg and Partille Cup with joy. The matches are played outdoors which I think makes it extra fun.” Nora Mørk, Norway and Larvik “Partille Cup is the best tournament in the world. I have participated ten or eleven times. Even today, I try to visit Partille Cup as often as I can, which tends to be every year. I love to stroll on Heden, in the very center of Gothenburg, and meet people from all over the world. Partille Cup’s effort to make handball a global sport can not be underestimated.” Isabelle Gulldén, Sweden and CSM București “I have only positive memories of Gothenburg, there were two glorious weeks when we won the European Open in 2005! It was a while ago, but even today, when I hear about Partille Cup and Gothenburg, it creates only positive feelings.” Steffen Weinhold, Germany and THW Kiel
MORE THAN HANDBALL JOY AND UNDERSTANDING CULTURE AND SOCIAL TIES
SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY Partille Cup as a tournament with its participants is so much bigger than just a huge international handball event. It is about making people come together. We believe that sport plays an important role as a promoter of social integration and economic development. Sport is a powerful tool to strengthen social ties and networks and it helps to promote ideals of peace, solidarity, non-violence, tolerance, teamwork, rules and justice. That is why we are so happy to annually welcome youth handball players to take part in this community and create memories for life.
