As decided by the IHF Council, the International Handball Federations does not only distribute compensation fees to all players participating in the Women’s World Championship in Serbia, bear the travel costs of all participating teams and pay a bonus fee to all participating federations, but also installed a players’ support system (insurance) for the final days of preparation and during the tournament in Serbia, which is played from 6 to 22 December 2013.


 

The IHF had already granted those costs for the Men’s World Championships 2011 in Sweden and 2013 in Spain. The players’ protection programme basically covers the players' contracted salary until the fixed maximum limit towards the corresponding handball clubs in case a player suffers an injury during the World Championship. The protection starts on 1 December 2013 and ends at the latest on 23 December 2013.

 


IHF has decided to compensate the losses encountered by the handball clubs due to accidents or sickness of a handball player suffered during the release period for her National Federation for the Women's Handball World Championship 2013 and consequential temporary total disablement as well as permanent total disablement from playing handball for her handball club or accidental death of a handball player. IHF has insured its financial risk resulting from the IHF Handball Players' Support with a recognized international insurance company.


 

The IHF Handball Players' Support will cover all players released to a National Federation during the release period. The compensation payments are made to the clubs for the period they employ and pay a salary for those handball players.


 

All players who are employed by handball clubs affiliated to an IHF National Federation and released to a National Federation during the release period for the 21st IHF Women’s Handball World Championship 2013 are protected. A professional handball player is a handball player who has a written contract with a club and is paid more for her handball activity than the expenses she effectively incurs. All other players are considered to be amateurs.


 

All amateur players are protected in case of:

-          temporary total disablement as a consequence of an accident or sickness during the operative time which entirely prevents the amateur handball player from carrying on her usual occupation for her employer for more than 14 consecutive days;

-          accidental death of the amateur handball player during the operative time

-          permanent total disablement as a consequence of an accident or sickness during the operative time which entirely prevents the amateur handball player from carrying on her usual occupation for her employer.

 

All participating federations have been informed by the IHF on how do deal with those mentioned injury cases and received all necessary forms to announce cases mentioned in those regulations.

After the 2013 Men’s World Championship in Spain several cases were compensated through the IHF players' protection programme.
