Five months after the last mutual meeting between the International Handball Federation (IHF) and the European Handball Federation (EHF), the IHF welcomed EHF President Michael Wiederer and EHF Secretary General Martin Hausleitner once again to the IHF Head Office in Basle, Switzerland. Following a welcome by IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa, the last meeting as well as the activities that have been carried out since then were discussed, such as the IHF/EHF Women’s Trophy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Serbia/Kosovo initiative, the release of the new interpretation of the Rules of the Game and the further steps taken in the IHF New Markets Project in USA, China and Great Britain. Next on the agenda was the EHF Congress, which took place in Glasgow, Scotland in June. Several competition issues were reviewed, amongst others the 2019 IHF Men’s Emerging Nations Championship, the future of Youth and Junior World Championships, a possible competition system with 32 teams at the 2021 IHF Men’s World Championship, technology services, the challenges of an injury compensation system, anti-doping measures and beach handball. Besides the IHF President and the EHF representatives, the meeting was attended by IHF Managing Director Amal Khalifa, Chairman of the IHF Commission of Coaching and Methods, Dietrich Späte, and IHF Competitions Director Patric Strub.
