The North America & Caribbean Handball Confederation (NACHC) headquarters will officially be located in Colorado Springs, sharing the space with USA Team Handball’s office. Located on the Penrose House property, the office is the first Olympic Sport Confederation headquarters to be located in Colorado Springs.
Today, 25 October 2019, the opening of the offices will be officially celebrated, with a welcome ceremony at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee Training Center. During their time in Colorado Springs, the attendees will also visit the offices and gather for a NACHC board meeting.
“When the NACHC was recognised earlier this year, we saw it as a tremendous approach to better support handball in countries desiring to be on the world handball stage,” said IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa ahead of the opening. “This headquarters in beautiful Colorado Springs in conjunction with other continental projects is a major step in making dreams become reality.”
The opening ceremony will be streamed live on the Facebook channel of USA Team Handball.
